The students of GRMT134: Stereotypes in Advertising, taught at Pomona College by Prof. Felix Kronenberg, are organizing a series of three exhibitions in Honnold/Mudd Library. On exhibit through the end of spring semester will be Special Collections' World War I and World War II posters and ephemera as well as imagery and advertising of current world events.

The second of these exhibitions is "Wartime Patriotism: Past & Present." A version of this in-library exhibition is also available as a web exhibition .

The students in this interdisciplinary course are exploring the depiction of the other in the world of advertising, looking at various stereotypes pertaining to categories such as nationality, ethnicity, gender, or age from a cultural studies perspective.

Honnold/Mudd Library, Founders Room - 4:15 PM - Prof. Monique Saigal, Romance Languages, Pomona College

A Jewish child, hidden by a Catholic family for several years, decides later in life to interview 18 women, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who fought in many different ways against the German Occupation in France. That Jewish child grew up to be Monique Saigal, Professor of Romance Languages at Pomona College. In her book, Héroïnes françaises, 1940-1945 : Courage, force et ingéniosité (published in 2008 by Editions du Rocher), recounts how her gradual awakening to her Jewish roots led to her own explorations of women in the French resistance. Who were they? What did they do? Why? In this lecture, Professor Saigal will discuss the personal motivations of political courage. She will also show some excerpts from the DVD made of the interviews with her subjects.
