Banned Books Week is September 27-October 3, 2015!
UNT Libraries are recognizing Banned Books Week with several programs for the campus and community.
In recognition of Banned Books Week (September 27-October 3, 2015), this exhibit explores materials in the University of North Texas Libraries’ unique collections that have been threatened by censorship.
The symposium will feature talks and object-oriented workshops by scholars whose work examines the material practices, written forms, and objects of bureaucracy.
Bureaucracy: A Love Story is the spring exhibit in the Special Collections reading room. The exhibit is open to public Monday-Saturday from 8 am – 5 pm and runs January 21-May 8, in Willis Library, 4th floor, room 447.
Bureaucracy is arguably one of the most loathed inventions of Western modernity. Yet, even as we complain about red tape, paperwork and Wikipedia, we also love to hate it—because we (clandestinely) rely on it to structure our world.
