The new Trump Administration has appointed several climate change skeptics and opponents of federal environmental regulations to lead the EPA and other agencies and departments. While several executive orders point towards a roll-back and curtailment of environmental protections, the Administration has not yet revealed a coherent strategy on how it intends to deal with climate change and interstate environmental issues. So what might we expect for the next four years? Claremont Discourse, the Library's signature faculty speaker series, has invited a panel of Claremont Colleges faculty experts to discuss what the Trump regime might mean for the environment and the politics of the environment.

More than Meets the Eye: The Videos of Tran, T. Kim-Trang
Book Launch Event

Thursday, October 27 | 4:15 p.m. - 6 p.m. | Digital Tool Shed, Claremont Colleges Library

This born-digital Scalar book reflects on the extensive body of video-based work created by Tran T. Kim-Trang, internationally recognized media artist and Professor of Art at Scripps College. It collects essays from leading figures in the media arts community, who offer nuanced assessment of the work, and it promises to jumpstart a conversation about the relevance of video as a form of critical authoring, a practice undertaken at a moment when the tools were in their infancy, but shared now at a time when authoring in media has never been more accessible nor the ability to disseminate one's ideas through video more possible.

Join us for a reception to celebrate the launch of More than Meets the Eye. Presenters include:
Michelle Dizon, Artist and Educator
Lucas Hilderbrand, UC Irvine
Jesse Lerner, Pitzer College
David Lloyd, UC Riverside
Tran, T. Kim-Trang, Scripps College

Refreshments will be served. For more information: Ashley Sanders | (909) 607-0894 |

Williams (Associate Professor of Chemistry, Keck Science Department); and Wei-Chin Hwang (Professor of Psychology, Claremont McKenna College).

Wednesday, October 12, 2016, 4:15 p.m.
Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library

Policy issues related to immigration, education, human and civil rights, the criminal justice system, labor, war, and economics are hotly debated topics of the 2016 election campaigns. The impact of policies around these issues on this country's populace shed further light on the need for conversations on race, gender, socio-economic status, religion, and other markers of identity. As part of this Claremont Discourse series on the presidential election, this panel will address identity politics tied to the election and the impact of both campaign rhetoric and the potential outcome of the election on various communities within this country, including but not limited to Latino, African-American, Asian-American, immigrant, LGBTQ, and Muslim communities.

Co-sponsored by the Dean's Action Committee for Diversity and Inclusivity (DACDI) at the Claremont Colleges Library.
