Librarian to Assist Creating Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community

Posted by isulib on April 19, 2016

Colleen Haas, a full-time instructor of African and African American Studies, has been chosen as a Faculty Fellow in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence to develop and implement a Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community at Indiana State.

The Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community will offer the opportunity for faculty to transform existing courses or develop new course content relative to diversity, inclusiveness and global societal perspectives gained from the sessions provided. An announcement calling for participants will be coming soon.

Haas received her bachelor’s degree from The College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1983. She earned her master’s (2005) degree and doctorate (2010) in ethnomusicology from Indiana University. Haas spent 12 months researching in Brazil as a Fulbright scholar in 2006. She joined the Indiana State faculty in 2011. Last week, Haas was recognized with the Community-Based Learning and Scholarship Award during Indiana State University’s Faculty Recognition Banquet.

Edith Campbell, an assistant reference and instruction librarian at Cunningham Memorial Library, will assist with the initiative. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and master’s degree from Indiana University. She will serve the initiative as a faculty affiliate via the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence.

Colleen brings an impressive depth of knowledge, experiences, and passion to this initiative,” said Beth Whitaker, director of the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence. “I am confident that her informed background and collaborative spirit will allow her to lead the new learning community in a highly productive fashion. Edi also comes to this initiative with expertise and energy. She will be assisting in research efforts and program coordination. Under the guidance of these two individuals, I am certain this learning community will afford participants a rewarding opportunity to grow and learn together as they explore the diverse aspects of multicultural curriculum.”

April 6: Seminar: Islamophobia – An Insight

Posted by isulib on April 4, 2016

Islamophobia – An Insight (11:00 am – 1:00 pm) Events Area

The Islamic faith is one of the world’s largest religions and can be found in almost every country across the globe. Media coverage in the USA typically only focuses on the actions of extremists, creating a culture of violence, fear, and hostiles. ISU is currently attracting more international students every year, meaning that we are increasing the number of Muslim students on and around campus.

This seminar will explore practical information related to the safety, security, and wellbeing of both Muslim students and Muslim community members in and around the Terre Haute area.

Topics covered will include: creating an inclusive environment for all Muslim students, faculty, and administrators, and appropriate ways of discussing and handling incidents on campus swiftly and appropriately. Panel discussion will follow.

March 1: Film: Standing on My Sister’s Shoulders

Posted by isulib on February 23, 2016

Movie-Standing

TRAILER

DESCRIPTION:

The award-winning documentary “Standing On My Sisters’ Shoulders” takes on the Civil Rights movement in Mississippi in the 1950’s and 60’s from the point of view of the courageous women who lived it – and emerged as its grassroots leaders. These women stood up and fought for the right to vote and the right to an equal education. They not only brought about change in Mississippi, but they altered the course of American history.

This documentary presents original interviews with many of the Civil Rights movement’s most remarkable women: Unita Blackwell, a sharecropper turned activist, who became Mississippi’s first female black mayor; Mae Bertha Carter, a mother of 13, whose children became the first to integrate the Drew County schools against dangerous opposition; white student activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland who not only participated in sit-ins but took a stand on integration by attending an all black university; Annie Devine and Victoria Gray Adams, who, along with Fannie Lou Hamer, stepped up and challenged the Democratic Party and President Johnson at the 1964 Convention.

In the name of freedom and equal rights, these women bravely faced great adversity and risked their physical safety, their jobs, and even their lives. When asked how they did it, one activist said, “I was standing on my sisters’ shoulders.” [source]
