Does the TV camera distract us from the humility of education? Does publicity & self-promotion encourage the sin of pride? Using multiple collections from the University Archives, this First Fridays presentation focuses on the introduction of film to communicate complicated ideas and promote groundbreaking research. A specific examination of an experimental surgery and the clash of new media with traditional scholarly publishing to transmit the information serves as an example

In the midst of dislocation and heartache over leaving one's homeland, many immigrants and their children gained a sense of pride in their skills at navigating American society, business and politics. IHRC Program Director Haven Hawley analyzes how pride in "making it" -- in finding acceptance, success or recognition in an adopted land -- served a vital role in how immigrants created a community identity as loyal American and longing emigrant.

Harlem Reniassance poet Claude Mckay wrote:

Sometimes I tremble like a storm-swept flower,
And seek to hide my tortured soul from thee.
Bowing my head in deep humility
Before the silent thunder of thy power.

Come visit in May to hear what the Givens Collection has to say about humility.
