Susan Sironi: Expressions Through Altered Books
Wednesday, April 2, 4:15PM
Honnold/Mudd Founders Room

Susan Sironi's current work with altered books and collage is an evolution from her earlier work in assemblage. Her work with altered books maintains a conceptual thread through the questioning of past histories with their impact on the present. A graduate of California State University Long Beach, she has shown throughout California and was included in Art Basel Switzerland and Miami 2012. Ms. Sironi will lecture on her artistic process and products, touching on topics including why she has chosen books as her medium; her messages of history, change, and memory; and how her technical process serves her artistic concept.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.

Do Books Still Speak? Artist's Books and Ideas
Judy Harvey Sahak, Director of the Ella Strong Denison Library and Kitty Maryatt, Director of the Scripps College Press

Launching the Claremont Colleges Library's annual altered book contest Re:book is this team presentation exploring the exciting and diverse world of artist's books. These aren't your grandmother's books: they act out, demand to be touched and manipulated, sometimes cause frustration and incite anger or provide, joyfulness, and surprise. Director of the Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College, Judy Harvey Sahak, will give an overview of the genre showing examples from the notable artist's books collection at Denison. Kitty Maryatt, Director of the Scripps College Press, will discuss the limited edition, handmade artist's books her students in the Typography and the Book Arts class create with care and purposefulness each semester.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.

Claremont Discourse Lecture "Spanish Women Travelers 1850-1920"

Please join us in the Honnold/Mudd Library Founders Room, tomorrow, March 5 at 4:15PM for a Claremont Discourse Lecture, sponsored by the Claremont Colleges Library.

The World Through Women's Eyes: Spanish Women Travelers 1850-1920
Jennifer Wood, Professor of Spanish, Scripps College

In her recent book, Spanish Women Travelers at Home and Abroad, 1850-1920: From Tierra del Fuego to the Land of the Midnight Sun (Bucknell University Press, 2013), Jennifer Wood, Professor of Spanish at Scripps College, explores the writings of eleven Spanish women as they visited many lands and witnessed major historical events. From among these remarkable travel writers, Professor Wood will discuss two for her Claremont Discourse Lecture -- Royal Princess Eulalia de Borbon and journalist Sofia Casanova. In 1893, Princess Eulalia was sent on a delicate mission to Cuba, Spain's last important American colony but already on the verge of rebellion, and subsequently represented Spain at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Two decades later, Casanova was the only Spanish woman writer of her day to visit the exotic cities and frozen landscapes of Russia. She remained in Eastern Europe to become the sole Spaniard, male or female, to report on the Great War from the Eastern Front. In her lecture, Professor Wood will illuminate the adventures of these intrepid women by analyzing their narrative voices and the lenses of gender, class, and nationality that filtered their reporting.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.
