“Lichtenberg figures: A.R. von Hippel,”
by Becky Fischbach

Art Meets Technology: Core Samples from Nine Archives is now on view in the Peterson Gallery, Green Library Bing Wing, through January 15.

With so much going on it can be challenging to find time to see exhibits, especially if you work across campus or in Redwood City. If you’ve been meaning to get around to it but haven’t yet, consider joining the curatorial group for a November 6 reception and symposium co-sponsored by the Stanford Arts Institute.

by Mattie Taormina and Regina Roberts

When Patti Hanlon-Baker, Associate Director for Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, asked if SUL might like to participate in the Ninth Biennial Feminisms and Rhetorics conference, Chris Bourg, Mattie Taormina, and Regina Roberts gladly welcomed the invitation. With 425 conference attendees coming to Stanford to hear papers on global feminist rhetoric and keynote speakers such as Dorothy Allison, Lynda Barry, and Lisa Ede, we saw this as a great opportunity to reinforce, once again, the idea of integrating library resources into the research process and conversation.
