Dr. Agnes Kaposi
Originating Calendar
Asian American Studies

Join us for a lecture with Dr. Agnes Kaposi, who brings nearly a century of perspective as she tells her life story and the role of information as a source of power/control resulting in otherness, exclusion, propaganda, dislocation, as well as transformation in engineering change. A conversation will follow, moderated by Dr. Valerie Matsumoto, to connect Dr. Kaposi’s experiences with those of other marginalized and dislocated groups worldwide, such as Japanese Americans, to identify similarities and differences across time and locations, as we rethink some of the most pressing issues that libraries face in promoting equitable communities in our information-intensive and networked society.
