  • Novel Bunch Book Group meets Monday, Feb. 27
    - Posted on February 21, 2017
    • The Novel Bunch Group will meet at 2 p.m. in the Marvin Library Multipurpose Room (2nd floor) on Monday, February 27th to explore “Antarctica: Life on the Ice” (Travelers’ Tales Guides) by Susan Fox Rogers.

      Antarctica’s legend as a fascinating, forbidding place is confirmed and expanded in these insider articles. Covering everything from “Happy Camper School” to washing dishes to what it’s like to fall in love in a place where the sun never goes down (or never comes up), these articles limn a world of colorful characters (human and otherwise) and breathtaking backdrops. The humor runs high here in work by Karen Joyce, who recounts an odd afternoon when it “rained chickens,” and Glenn Grant, who riffs on the dreaded “psych test.” Some of the contributors are award-winning travel writers: Bill Fox, for example, leads a pithy tour through the remote base McMurdo, while Lucy Bledsoe tells of looking for krill and finding dinosaur bones instead. Other contributors are newbies, who vividly conjure the region’s extraordinary sights, from gale-force winds and magnificent glaciers to mummified seals and charming penguins.

      Author Susan Fox Rogers will be on campus Thursday, March 2 as part of Voices: A Library Lecture Series to share her experiences living at McMurdo Station in Antarctica and on the ship Antigua in the Arctic.

      All are welcome!

      For more information contact Anne LaBelle at 629-7384 or a.labelle@hvcc.edu.

    - Posted on February 20, 2017
    • Could you use an extra $1,500? Maybe $1,000? How about $500? The David A. Garfinkel Essay Scholarship is within your reach.

      Each spring the Historical Society of the New York Courts awards three scholarship prizes to SUNY community college students, based on original writing and research in the form of an essay. Each year, contestants write on a specific topic, this year’s topic being: YOU, the VOTER:  HOW FAR HAVE WE COME?  IS THE JOURNEY OVER? 

      The top prize is $1,500 with runner up prizes of $1,000 and $500.

      In 2008, Hudson Valley student Elijah Fagan-Solis wrote a winning essay entitled The Courts and Human Rights in New York: The Legacy of the Lemmon Slave Case. In 2015, another student Melanie Hecker earned Honorable Mention recognition for her essay, entitled LGBT: The Road to Equality — How Have the New York Courts Addressed Equal Human Rights for the LGBT Community?

      How can a student achieve this level of distinction? Jump in, plan your time, work with a librarian and a writing specialist. The tools are available to you and the reward is great.

      For more information on how to get started, tips for success and actual past winning papers, visit the Dwight Marvin Library Research Guide: David A. Garfinkel Essay Scholarship 2017 or contact Librarian Val Waldin, MRV 141, v.waldin@hvcc.edu, (518) 629-7319.

      Outspoken New York suffragist and labor lawyer Inez Milholland was a leader in the women’s movement in the early 20th century. Margaret Bartley, writer, history teacher and Essex County historian, discusses Milholland’s life and her work’s powerful impact on our state legislature to grant women the right to vote.

      Votes for Women (20 minutes)
      The passage of the 19th Amendment was a 72-year struggle that began in Seneca Falls, NY, in 1848, and ended on Aug. 26, 1920, when Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the Constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote.
      The short documentary, “Votes for Women,” celebrates the suffrage campaign, its ultimate victory, and the paths that contemporary women are taking in politics (Ishtar Films).

      Inez Milholland: Forward into Light (15 minutes)
      This short documentary is a window into the women’s suffrage movement seen through the work of Inez Milholland, a suffragette who will inspire woman today
      as much as she did 100 years ago. Milholland helped lead the fight for the 19th Amendment and also advocated for gender equality, pacifism, racial justice and workers’ rights.

      Both films will be shown Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. and Thursday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m. All showings will be in the Marvin Library Multipurpose Room (second floor).

  • Nominations open for the Dr. Joseph J. Bulmer Award for Excellence in Library Research
    - Posted on February 1, 2017
    • It is not too early to consider submitting your “A” research paper for the Dr. Joseph J. Bulmer Award for Excellence in Library Research!

      A student must be nominated by the faculty member for whom the research assignment was completed, or may self nominate.

      Award selection criteria are as follows:

      • Extensive bibliography with minimum of five sources and various formats
      • Evidence of initiative, persistence, and ingenuity in identifying sources
      • Evidence of critical thinking in evaluating sources for credibility and appropriateness
      • Correct citation format
      • Free of plagiarism; i.e., authentic academic work only (papers may be reviewed using turnitin.com or similar software)
      • Grade of “A”

      A recipient is chosen every spring, and paper submissions are accepted from the previous summer session, fall semester, and current spring semester.  This means if a student completed a research paper for summer session 2016, fall 2016, or spring 2017, it will be reviewed and considered.

      The Bulmer Award comes with a monetary sum, recognition at the Student Honors ceremony and commencement, and the recipient’s name on a perpetual plaque in the Dwight Marvin Library Learning Commons. And, it looks great on a college transcript or resume!

      For tips on how to earn that “A” grade, specifics on what is required, and to nominate your paper, simply follow the directions in the Bulmer Award Research Guide.

      For more information, please contact Val Waldin, librarian, at v.waldin@hvcc.edu, MRV 141, or 629-7319.

       

  • Mixed media exhibit opens Thursday, Feb. 2 in the Teaching Gallery
    - Posted on February 1, 2017
    • The Teaching Gallery announces So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence, an exhibition by Brooklyn artist Sarah Walko, on view Feb. 2 through March 4. The Teaching Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Administration Building.

      Walko will discuss her work on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium, with a reception following from 4 to 6 p.m. in the gallery. Both events are free and open to the public.

      Through sculpture, drawing and installation, the artist explores the mythic possibilities of objects, images and imagination. Walko says she seeks to create “experiences that allow one’s perceptions to shift from the historical, to the narrative, to the scientific, to the alchemical and to the magical. The work is a call to look closer and see larger how interconnected we all are and to all things.”

      Walko holds a B.A. from the University of Maryland and an M.F.A. from the Savannah (Georgia) College of Art and Design. Her recent exhibitions include Earth Revisited, Film and Video, an exhibition on the Manhattan Bridge (DUMBO, Brooklyn); To Be Everything, Silo Gallery (New Milford, CT); Audubon and the Avian Experience, Marietta College (Marietta, OH); Ley Lines, University of Wyoming Art Museum, (Laramie, WY); Raising the Temperature, Queens Museum of Art (Queens), and You and I Do Not Come Lightly to the Blank Page, Roger Williams University (Bristol, RI). She has held residencies at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York City), I-Park Foundation (East Haddam, CT) and served as a teacher, lecturer or panelist at The Brooklyn Academy of Music (New York City); Endicott College (Beverly, MA); Kansas City Art Institute (Kansas City, MO); University of Missouri-Kansas City and the Savannah College of Art and Design. Walko is the director of Education and Community Engagement at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. She lives and works in Brooklyn and Summit, NJ.

      Teaching Gallery exhibitions are supported by the Department of Fine Arts, Theatre Arts and Digital Media with assistance from the Cultural Affairs Program. All exhibitions are installed and staffed by students in Gallery Management classes.
