Pop Culture: Past Events

Throughout the 2014-15 academic year, the Dartmouth Centers Forum and its members are sponsoring a wide range of events in support of the theme Pop Culture: What puts the 'pop' in popular culture?

Programming Sponsored by DCF Members

In addition to programming funded directly by the DCF, the DCF's member centers also plan programming focused on the theme. The following represent some examples of this programming.

Banned Books Week: Comics and Graphic Novels from the Dartmouth College Library's Collection
Sponsored by: The Dartmouth College Library

Library logoSeptember 21-27, 2014
Berry Library Main Street, South End

The Dartmouth College Library celebrated the freedom to read with a display of comics and graphic novels from its collection. The display was in conjunction with Banned Books Week, a national event coordinated by libraries, booksellers, and publishers to draw attention to the problem of censorship. Comics and graphic novels have been subject to book challenges in schools, libraries, and universities across the country, and often show up on the American Library Association's Top Ten List of frequently challenged books. Themes covered in the books may often reflect popular culture sentiments of the day. The materials in the Library's display were available for checkout.
