New Book Display: Counternarratives

A new book display is now available on Mudd 2, near the main Services Desk. This display is a joint effort of jill moniz, The Pomona College Museum of Art's curator of Alexandra Bell's Counternarratives public art project, and several librarians from The Claremont Colleges Library.

Bell's artwork highlights the hidden language codes, picture choices, and headlines that expose editorial bias in main stream media. Bell "radically reedits" New York Times articles by adding racially neutral language and visual imagery that is more descriptive of the headlines she investigates.

All of these books are available for you to check out!

For more information about the Counternarratives art installation and to see a list of these books as well as e-books and streaming videos that the library makes available, go to: libguides.libraries.claremont.edu/counternarratives
