Event Description: The FSU Libraries and the Center for Humanities and Society invite you to join us for a cross-disciplinary dialogue on how we understand and represent spaces around us with different forms of sensory input and output. Speakers will address ways that we approach, make sense of, and articulate sensory experience as psychological, cognitive, and socio-historical constructions drawing on neurobiological, emotional, and socio-cultural interpretation. Through such practice, we define boundaries between mind and body, self and society, and idea and object in specific cultural and temporal contexts.

Event Description: The book discussion is collaboration between University Libraries and the Center for Global Engagement for Women’s History Month. This year the title is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Join us for the Kick-Off Event where we will be giving a brief introduction to the book and distributing copies. A powerful, tender story of race and identity by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun. Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.
