The Department of English and Falvey Memorial Library’s annual Open Mic Poetry Reading will take place on Wednesday, April 23, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the library’s Speakers’ Corner. Class of 2014 Creative Writing Contestants, other students and members of the University community will share original work and favorite poems, ranging from the humorous to the thought-provoking to the sublime. This event will also feature the release party of Arthology, one of Villanova University's student art-literary magazines, which will be available to students for free. Whether you have a poem you’d like to share or just want to listen, the Department of English and Falvey Memorial Library invite you to enjoy this entertaining and memorable celebration of poetry.

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 at 4:00 PM in Room 204

The research experts at Falvey Memorial Library will hold two instruction sessions on citing sources following Chicago Style rules on April 23 and 29. Chicago style is used extensively in the humanities and social sciences for its clarity and flexibility; however, its eccentricities (different footnote and bibliography styles, the Ibid. system, etc.) make it tougher to get started with when compared to the other styles. This class will lay the groundwork for Chicago Style and demonstrate its ability to meet nearly any documentation need. Each of the sessions will be held from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in Falvey 204 in the second-floor Learning Commons. For more information, contact history liaison librarian Jutta Seibert (jutta.seibert@villanova.edu).

 
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 at 6:00 PM in Old Falvey Reading Room

Monday, June 9th, 2014 at 9:00 AM in Speakers' Corner

On Monday, June 9th 2014, Falvey Memorial Library is proud to present VuPop 2, our annual conference which explores pop culture and mass media. This year, the VuPop series will turn its attention to Interactive Fiction in Print and Online.

While storytelling probably began as a very fluid process, several centuries of the printed book have given fiction an air of inflexibility and inevitability. However, for several decades, authors of gamebooks like Choose Your Own Adventure and Fighting Fantasy have been finding ways to directly involve the reader in the narrative of the book and to encompass multiple possibilities within a single volume.

Computer games and other digital media have brought fiction into new and infinitely variable realms. This conference will examine the evolution of interactive fiction and discuss ways in which it can be studied and used pedagogically.

So far, speakers at this event include Randy Cook of eGenesis Media, Christopher Liu of AdventureCow and Rebecca Slitt of Choice of Games, LLC.  More speakers and events will be added shortly.

To get the latest news, to register, or to submit a proposal of your own, head over to http://vupop.org
