Changes in Study Areas at the Cooperman Library

As of Tuesday, April 22, there will only be two types of study floors: silent and group. This will allow users to make the best use of the spaces they are working in, and enable everyone to enjoy their time in the Cooperman Library.

Our renovated Cooperman Library is a great place for everyone looking to study or just spend time between classes. We want the spaces to be equally useful and enjoyable for the entire Hunter Community: those who are spending social time or engaging in group study, as well as those who desire to study in peace and quiet.

Since the reopening of the new 3rd floor, we have seen the highest number of users coming into the Cooperman Library in its history. With more people using the library, the proper use of our spaces has become more critical. In response to student concerns about noise on both quiet and silent floors, which have come to us through the suggestion box and electronically, a group of librarians and staff have met and have concluded that we need to better indicate areas for silent and group study. These designations will best support the rules of conduct expected to be strictly observed in these areas.

Do you have questions? Feedback? Contact us:
Online: http://library.hunter.cuny.edu/contact
Via text: hunterlib to 66746
In person: Drop off a written suggestion the Suggestion Box on the 3rd Floor of the Cooperman Library, near the Welcome Desk.

The Color of Citizenship

The Legacies of Japanese Internment from World War II to Stop & Frisk

The mass incarceration of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II is a powerful but often occluded illustration of the fragility of US citizenship and civil liberties. As such, this event demands frequent reexamination in relation to ongoing conversations regarding post-9/11 special registration, detention, and deportation as well as long-standing formal and informal practices of profiling and surveillance of communities of color.

This daylong conference presents a three-part program examining:

  • The history of the Japanese American incarceration and how it is made meaningful to multiple publics in different locations - higher education, museums, and our national landmarks.
  • Artists who deploy this history as relevant to their artistic and political practices in the present.
  • The legal significance of the incarceration to contemporary local and national state policies directed against communities of color.

Keynote address by Norman Mineta, 14th US Secretary of Transportation.

Date: Friday, May 2
Time: 9:00 - 6:00 pm
Place: Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute (49 East 65th Street betw. Park & Madison)
RSVP here

For more information, please contact Steffan Horowitz, Human Rights Program Associate at 212.396.7948, or shoro@hunter.cuny.edu.

This conference is sponsored by Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, the Asian American Studies Program at Hunter College, and Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University.

Internships at El Museo del Barrio, Summer 2014

Each spring, summer, and fall El Museo del Barrio offers Internship opportunities to promising undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates and career changers who are considering careers in the arts, education, non-profits and museum profession. Through administrative and project-based Internships, Interns have opportunities to research, conceptualize, coordinate, execute, and/or evaluate programs and initiatives.

Through its Internship program, El Museo del Barrio creates platforms for emerging museum professionals and contributes to diversifying the museum field.

During the spring and fall sessions Interns are expected to commit 14-21 hours per week during a 14-16 week cycle, and 10-week cycle during the summer.

Eligibility: With the exception of Arts Interns, a paid summer internship opportunity through the Arts Intern program (www.artsintern.org), all internships are unpaid. College credit is available on a case-by-case basis. Applicants should apply to no more than two internship positions. Please note, we are currently not reviewing materials from international applicants.
