Originating Calendar
Jewish Culture and Society

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 J. 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 aim to understand the Other and rethink some of the most pressing issues that libraries face in promoting equitable communities in our information-intensive and networked society.
