Souvenir-Fest for Children (Sponsored by LU UNICEF Club)
Make a difference in children's lives with a souvenir from your country or city. Please donate a souvenir to support local or global programs for children.  By supporting local programs, your souvenir will be presented to marginalized children in the South Side Bethlehem. Many of them have not traveled beyond Bethlehem and having a small present from a foreign country or another state will be something truly special.  By supporting a global program, your souvenir will be sold during the International Bazaar at Lehigh and all money collected will go directly to support UNICEF children's program worldwide to fight hunger, malnutrition, and promote access to education.  Please bring your souvenir to the Graduate Student Office or Office of International Scholars and Students.   

Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lehighunicef or email mvk211@lehigh.edu for any questions or inquires.

Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries - Fall 2014 Speaker Series: Hot Reads (of the 19th Century)

 

Monday, October 27, 4:10pm, Scheler Humanities Forum (Linderman 200) - Digitization and the Nineteenth-Century Book: Traces in the Stacks How 19th century books are faring in the wake of Google. Through search and visualization, digitized archives reveal wonders. But 19th century reader behavior is revealed by notes and other "traces" in the physical book, now imperiled in the new media ecosystem.

Andrew Stauffer is an associate professor of English at the University of Virginia, where he also directs NINES (http://nines.org), a digital scholarly organization focused on nineteenth century studies. Lehigh's The Vault at Pfaff's is a NINES Scholarly Project.

Wednesday, November 12, 12:10pm, Scheler Humanities Forum (Linderman 200) - The Depths of Astonishment: Nineteenth-Century Underground Literature explores the earliest literature of these undergrounds: the lurid "city mysteries" that took the urban underworld as their subject.

Lara Langer Cohen is assistant professor of English at Swarthmore College, and the author of The Fabrication of American Literature: Fraudulence and Antebellum Print Culture (2011).
