New Books at Miami

Thursday, November 14, 2019
4:00 pm
King Library 320

On November 14 at 4 p.m., the University Libraries and the Humanities Center will jointly host New Books at Miami to celebrate books recently published by Miami University faculty.

King Library will host a series of 8 five-minute micro-talks by the authors of recent publications. This will be followed at 5pm by a reception for faculty and graduate students in the Howe Writing Center for Writing Excellence, on the library's first floor.

If you have published a book in the last 3 years, we invite you to bring it with you to the 4pm talks, so that it can be included in the display of recent publications at the 5pm reception.

Speakers at this event will include:

  • Mark Curnutte, Across the Color Line: Reporting 25 Years in Black Cincinnati
  • Mack Hagood, Hush: Media and Sonic Self-Control
  • Daisy Hernandez, Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism
  • Michele Navakas, Liquid Landscape: Geography and Settlement at the Edge of Early America
  • Gaile Pohlhaus, The Routledge Handbook of Epistemic Injustice
  • Susan V. Spellman, Cornering the Market: Independent Grocers and Innovation in American Small Business
  • Nicole Thesz, The Communicative Event in the Works of Günter Grass: Stages of Speech, 1959-2015
  • Zara Torlone, Virgil and His Translators.
