Successes for Mosaic, Messiah’s Institutional Repository

Exciting news! Mosaic has just had its 10,000th downloaded item!  It was…drum roll, please…Dr. David Pettegrew’s The Eastern Korinthia Archaeological Survey: Integrated Methods for a Dynamic Landscape.  So far, Mosaic content has been viewed in 131 countries, Afghanistan to Zimbabwe! The library is appreciative of those who have contributed and we look forward to including many new collections, from educators and students, soon. 

“Under the Veil: Medieval Female Theologians and Their Legacy” lecture by Dr. Sharon Putt

The Gender Concerns Committee and Office of Faculty Development would like to invite you to “Under the Veil: Medieval Female Theologians and Their Legacy” lecture by Dr. Sharon Putt, professor of theology and religion, and recipient of a 2019-2020 Riegsecker Gender Concerns grant. Medieval female theologians thought and wrote innovative, provocative theological treatises for the church and, for centuries, the Christian tradition has, with few exceptions, dismissed and ignored them. During these times of extreme gender inequality, church leaders charged these holy women with ailments such as hysteria, narcissism, neurosis and nymphomania. One of these women, however, gained the respect and the ear of a pope. Benedictine Abbess Hildegard of Bingen left us with hundreds of letters and songs, books on healing, physiology and ecology, as well as theological treatises that, if we listen, address contemporary concerns about earth care and peace-making. Her theology of love for God, each other and the earth reaches across the centuries and remains relevant to any person who has ears to hear and heart to respond. Come and hear Putt explore Hildegard’s thought and seek to find ways to incorporate her ideas into our lives for the benefit of the world in which we live. Join us Wednesday, March 25 at 6:15 p.m. in Boyer 131.

“Love Your Neighbors: Immigrant Stories” – Feb. 18, 7:15-8:30 p.m. on the library’s main level

Immigration is an important and sensitive topic in our country’s current narrative and too often there is an incorrect and harmful perception of immigrants. To counter this, the library, in partnership with the peace and conflict studies program, is planning a presentation featuring and honoring immigrants’ stories as part of the Humanities Symposium on vulnerability and security. In an effort to add depth, nuance and understanding to the so-called “immigrant story” (which is actually many, many different stories), we have invited four individuals at Messiah who have immigrated to the U.S. more recently to tell their stories.

From different regions of the world, of different ages and backgrounds, the diversity of our speakers’ experiences represents just how different the paths of those who come to the United States are.

Our colleagues: Joanna Matlak who lived behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and Prof. Gladys Robalino from Ecuador

Students: Erik Joloka who had to leave his home in Liberia due to war and Ambreen Imran, a hijabi Muslim from Pakistan, will tell about their experiences, their path to the U.S., when they may have felt vulnerable, as well as when they’ve felt secure (the topic of the Humanities Symposium), and perhaps something they wish people knew about their experience.

We encourage you to attend this important event and invite others to join you!
