New Exhibition in Ethnic Studies

February 8th, 2014

Take some time to enjoy a new undergraduate exhibit at College Library! Students enrolled in “Religious Studies 200: Love & Attachment in Buddhist Literature & Art” are displaying their creative work from February 7th through February 21st in the Ethnic Studies Reading Room (Room 1193). The display, entitled Visual Enlightenments, features both student artwork and short stories.

Religious Studies 200, taught by Professor Anne Hansen, is a First-Year Interest Group (FIG) course. Students enrolled in FIGs take three courses together, allowing them to meet other students with similar interests and connect with faculty in a small group setting.

For the last two years, College Library librarians have worked closely with Professor Hansen and the students enrolled in this course. Through information literacy classes at College Library, students learn about and explore the many religion-related resources available to them for their course projects. Eliot Finkelstein, a librarian at College Library, joined the students for dinner at Professor Hansen’s house in Fall 2012, and continues to meet with the students individually to assist them with their research.
