Hello, poppy friends and family! I have some resources/updates to send over to you.
1) I wanted to let you all know that currently, Paizha Stoothoff is our Cal State LA subject librarian for philosophy. She reached out to the club recently, keeping us posted with resources, events, library services for philosophy students, research interests, and more. She is also available for research appointments if you wanna speak with someone! She sent me two resources that I’ll relay to you here:
a) Paizha’s built and updated the library’s Philosophy Research Guide, which, as the name suggests, has resources for research in philosophy, and a link to set up research appointments with her if you so need/desire!
b) The library is also teaming up with L.A. Zine Fest and hosting a virtual event tomorrow ( Tuesday 4/28), from 11:30AM-1:30PM, on an introductory workshop on zines and self-publishing! They’ll go over different types of zines, zine history, and brainstorming ideas for zines. If you’re interested in attending this, please let me know, and I’ll forward the Zoom meeting link over to you. It’s an especially cool event for folks interested in self-publishing!
2) A club member of ours, Jafet Rodriguez, has been working with some other graduate students to build a resolution to the university to address many of the issues students are facing during the present virus crisis. They will be sending this resolution to ASI in the hopes that they adopt it. I’ll link this pandemic resolution to the university here, and if you support the asks and demands in it, please do sign it at the bottom.
That’s all for now. Hope you’re all well. For those of you who are muslim, Ramadan Mubarak! Especially if you’re fasting, stay healthy, and do not push yourself beyond your limits. For everyone else, also stay healthy, take care of yourself and loved ones the best you can!
