Want to know more about the summer olympics, it’s history, all of the sports included, even the rest of the schedule and where to find results? Then check out the books and image display at the M.D. Anderson Library, first floor in front of the computer labs. There are books not only on the Olympics, but on nearly all the sports as well as on sports in the media, sports psychology, sports management, coaching–even how to be a talent scout.
The catalog will be down and unavailable Thursday, May 17th from 7:00pm – 10:00pm. This downtime is necessary in order to install a required upgrade to the system. This upgrade is scheduled to occur this evening (May 17) at 7:00pm. If all goes well, the catalog will not be down longer than 3 hours. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Proposals related to death in Latin American art and visual culture are encouraged. The organizers will accept presentations in both Spanish and English.
Papers will be selected based upon the quality of the proposal (including merit of the topic, clarity of expression, and relevance to the conference theme), the proposal’s ability to provoke critical exchange and debate, and opportunities for interaction between participants that will enable attendees to engage in a truly interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and viewpoints.
Presenters will be afforded the opportunity for their symposium paper/presentation to be published in the Texas Digital Library.
Papers will be twenty minutes in length and will be followed by ten minutes of discussion. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted on the symposium website.
The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2012.
