The UCSB Library Scholarly Communication Program is pleased to present Nubian studies scholar, punctum books co-director, and philologist Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei.
Vincent will discuss how community-focused, scholar-led open access publishing can help launch fields of inquiry and study that otherwise would not have adequate resources to establish themselves, because most publishers would consider the discipline too "small" and thus too risky to commit publishing resources.
This summer, for the first time, read along with the UCSB Reads Committee as they work to select the UCSB Reads 2018 book.
The UCSB Reads Committee has announced the five titles that make-up the short list for 2018 consideration. The selections are:
1. Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
2. The Round House: A Novel by Louise Erdrich
3. Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War by Viet Thanh Nguyen

The UC Santa Barbara Library has chosen “Into the Beautiful North” as its 2017 UCSB Reads selection. An annual event now in its 11th year, UCSB Reads engages the campus and the Santa Barbara community in conversations about key topics while reading the same book. UCSB Reads is presented by the UCSB Library, in partnership with the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor. The event culminates in a public talk by Urrea on April 24 in UCSB’s Campbell Hall.
