Our annual campus tradition is back for the 26th year! Help bring joy to children who have experienced abuse or neglect by donating a new stuffed toy or a new blanket for Tulsa’s Children's Advocacy Center/Child Abuse Network. Each child who is helped by CAC/CAN receives a stuffed toy and a blanket. Because CAC/CAN helps children ages 0-18, they need a variety of stuffed toys and blankets!
To donate, bring any new stuffed toy or new blanket to Schusterman Library.
We're celebrating the new power outlets on the library patio by serving up free lunch! Stop by the library on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 from 12-1 pm to grab a free grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup and check out the patio space.
Sandwiches and soup will be available while supplies last.
Meals can tell us how power is exchanged between and among different peoples, races, genders, and classes. Fire and Freedom: Food and Enslavement in Early America looks at the Chesapeake region, during the early colonial era, where European settlers relied upon indentured servants, Native Americans, and African slave labor for life-saving knowledge of farming and food acquisition, and to gain economic prosperity. It is through the labor of slaves, like those at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, that we can learn about the ways that meals transcend taste and sustenance.
Under the leadership of Bruce Goff (1904-82), Herb Greene (b. 1929), Mendel Glickman (1895-1967), and many others, OU faculty developed a curriculum that emphasized individual creativity, organic forms, and experimentation. This radical approach to design drew students to Oklahoma from as far away as Japan and South America and later spread the American School influence to their practices in California, Hawaii, Japan, and beyond.
