News from the John W. Kluge Center: Watch Now: Peculiar Pop and Comic Books at the Library of Congress
From https:

Our event looking at the Library’s collection of genre comics is now available. Watch here.

In it, Jesse J. Holland and Megan Halsband discuss the Library of Congress comics collection, as well as the place of comics in American culture.

Halsband, a Librarian in the Serial & Government Publications Division, completed a 2021 staff fellowship looking at the non-superhero genre collections at the Library of Congress, including western, romance, education and funny animal comics. Holland, in addition to his work in Black history and journalism, is the author of “Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther?” the first novel featuring the comic book character Black Panther and a comics enthusiast. 

The full event is available to watch now.


News from the John W. Kluge Center: Watch Now: Social Movements and American Democracy in the 21st Century
From https:

The Kluge Center is pleased to announce that our latest event looking at recent social movements in the United States is now available to watch on the Library’s YouTube channel.

Grassroots organizing and collective action have always been fundamental to American democracy. Some recent struggles by Americans to make their voices heard have not resulted in the kinds of changes that participants hoped for. But some movements, both recently and further back in American history, have succeeded in changing our society and the way that we understand it.

What’s the difference between a movement that wins victories for its constituents, and one that fails? What are the factors that make collective action powerful? In this event, our panel of scholars of American politics, social movements, and civic participation discusses these questions, the state of social movements in the US today, and other trends related to the health of democracy in a troubled time.

Watch the full event now.

Watch Now: The Invention of Miracles with Katie Booth

The John W. Kluge Center interview with author and former Kluge Fellow Katie Booth is now available to watch. Booth is the author of “The Invention of Miracles: Language, Power, and Alexander Graham Bell's Quest to End Deafness,” a book that explores a lesser-known side to the legacy of the famous inventor of the telephone. Booth, who grew up in a mixed hearing and deaf family, looks at the history and impact of Bell’s attempts to discourage the use of American Sign Language and encourage speech by deaf people, an effort with a troubling and lasting legacy. 

Watch the full event here. For more, read our recent interview with Katie Booth.

Katie Booth teaches writing at the University of Pittsburgh. Her work has appeared in The Believer, Catapult, and Harper’s Magazine, and has been highlighted on Longreads and Longform; “The Sign for This” was a notable essay in the 2016 edition of Best American Essays. Booth is a former Kluge Fellow and worked on “The Invention of Miracles” during that fellowship.

Constanze Stelzenmüller (Kissinger Chair) wrote an article for the Brookings Institution titled, “Nord Stream 2 impasse threatens trans-Atlantic ties.” The article explains how the Nord Stream natural gas pipeline might affect relationships among several countries. Also, Stelzenmüller moderated a panel discussion for the seventh annual Justice Stephen Breyer Lecture on International Law about Defending democracy against its adversaries. She was also named the inaugural holder of the Fritz Stern Chair and participated in a related event.

Susan Schneider (Astrobiology Chair) founded the Center for the Future Mind at Florida Atlantic University. The Center for the Future Mind explores scientific and philosophical innovations to achieve a richer understanding of emerging technologies and the future of the mind.

Aynne Kokas (Kluge Fellow) commented in a Washington Post piece on China not showing the Oscars live. In a Nikkei Asia article on how anti-Asian attacks have eroded the US's image abroad, she is quoted saying that "there's not enough effort to distinguish between the behaviors and policies of the Chinese government and the Chinese people in China, as well as Chinese Americans in the United States." And she is quoted in a South China Morning Post piece on how Chinese movies have struggled to find audiences overseas. Kokas co-wrote an article titled, “China-Born Chloe Zhao Sought Common Ground in Oscars Speech,” in Nikkei Asia. She testified at a hearing titled U.S.-China Relations: Improving U.S. Competitiveness Through Trade held by The U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. She was mentioned in several articles: Oscar Winner Chloé Zhao Becomes Lightning Rod in US-China Relationship, Says Media Professor, This Year’s Oscars Most Diverse Ever | Voice of America – English, China and Hollywood: The End of the Affair. She appeared on the Wilson Center’s Need to Know podcast. In addition, Kokas was selected as a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

David Baron (Astrobiology Chair) gave a virtual talk hosted by La Sierra University in Southern California. The speech focused on his previous books and his research at the Library of Congress.

Carla P. Freeman (US-China Relations Chair) won The China Quarterly's 2020 Gordon White Prize for her article titled, "An Uncommon Approach to the Global Commons: Interpreting China's Divergent Positions on Maritime and Outer Space Governance." Freeman, whose research and teaching focuses on Chinese foreign policy, examines China's approach to the global commons—those areas throughout the globe over which no country has sovereignty and that are accessible to all, such as the maritime and outer space commons.

Jemima Paine (Arts and Humanities Research Council Fellow) is involved in organizing a conference at the British Library called National Libraries Now. The aim of the conference is to bring together library professionals working directly with collections in national libraries to share current practice and new approaches to curatorship.

In “Sharing the Burden,” Laderman looks at the Armenian struggle for survival in the early 20th century, and the way that it forced the US to consider its role as an international power in a new way.

Laderman is a Lecturer in International History and part of the core team responsible for directing the Centre for Grand Strategy at King’s College London. Laderman did much of his research for the book at the Library of Congress when he was a fellow with the UK’s AHRC in 2010 and then again in 2015.
