Please join us for an engaging talk by Professor Benjamin Madley, who will be visiting UC Berkeley to speak about his new book, An American Genocide: The United States and the California Indian Catastrophe, 1846-1873 (Yale University Press, 2016).
Date: Tuesday, October 4
Time: 5:00 – 6:00pm
Place: Morrison Library
This book takes readers into pre-contact California and through a Gold Rush which stirred white vigilante violence. Over the course of three decades in the 1800s, 80% of California Indians were slaughtered—over 120,000 people—with the complicity of state and federal government. As the US Army responded to local government and vigilante action, state and federal governments spent over $1,700,000 on campaigns against California Indians. Madley asks what makes a genocide, taking us through historical methods that can be used to explore other genocides in America and beyond.
Join us for this engaging and important presentation from Professor Madley. Copies of his book will be on sale at the event. The talk is sponsored by the UC Berkeley Library and the Ethnic Studies Library at UC Berkeley.
The Library attempts to offer programs in accessible, barrier-free settings. If you think you may require disability-related accommodations, please contact the event sponsor prior to the event.

The innovative approach of the Environmental Design Library towards artists’ books is featured in the current issue of ACSA News. Revealing the Hidden Beauty of Artists’ Books Through Events and a Virtual Catalog, authored by David Eifler and Molly Rose, describes the importance of getting these amazing objects out of the locked cage and to the user — both physically, and virtually.
Please join us for a conversation about the recently published book Achieving College Dreams: How a University-Charter District Partnership Created an Early College High School (Oxford University Press, 2016).

Edited by Professors Rhona S. Weinstein (Psychology) and Frank C. Worrell (Graduate School of Education), the book tells the story of a remarkable 10-year collaboration between UC Berkeley and Aspire Public Schools to develop and nurture the California College Preparatory Academy (CAL Prep). Framed by a longitudinal lens, findings from community-engaged scholarship, and a diversity of voices from students to superintendents, it charts the journey from the initial decision to open the school to the high school graduation of its first two classes. Readers are taken inside the workings of the partnership, the development of the school, and the spillover of effects across district and university.
Running from September 8 to November 27, the Oslo Architecture Triennale promises an in-depth exploration of many challenges facing the architectural field, including refugees, migration, homelessness; new mediated forms of domesticity and foreignness; environmental displacements; tourism; and the technologies and economies of sharing. The conference will also feature 17 speakers from across the global design scene, including Columbia GSAPP Dean and Work Architecture Company co-founder Amale Andraos, Atelier Bow-Wow Founders Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima, and OMA Partner Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, just to name a few.http://archpaper.com/2016/08/oslo-architecture-triennale-first-look/

The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence
Education Psychology Library, Seminar Room
Professor Dacher Keltner will be speaking about his new book, The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence (http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/power_paradox), which synthesizes his twenty years of scientific research on power. How we handle power impacts our happiness, our stress, and our physical health — as well as that of people around us.
Dacher Keltner is famous for his ability to make complex psychological research interesting and actionable (he and Paul Ekland were responsible for the science behind Pixar’s Inside Out, for just one example!) Join us for a fascinating discussion with Professor Keltner on the timely and important topics explored in his new book.
Date: Friday, August 26
Place: Environmental Design Library Atrium, 210 Wurster Hall
Artists’ books defy conventional “reading” and involve the viewer through sight, touch, and physical manipulation. These books are too often locked behind exhibit cases, but the Environmental Design Library will have 20 recently-purchased books on hand for you to touch, turn pages, and experience.
Hosted by David Eifler, Jennifer Osgood, Molly Rose and Lauri Twitchell
Wine and light refreshments will be served
This event is free and open to the public
