Drawing on four decades of experience in Honduras, Jim Phillips (SOU Sociology/Anthropology) explores ways in which the peoples of Honduras slowly developed a broad culture of resistance and resilience. The slow struggle against corruption, and to achieve land and environmental preservation and sustainable agriculture and technology, culminated in the 2009 coup. Both indigenous peoples and religion have played a significant role in this resistance and resilience. See more.

Thanks, Jim, for donating a copy of your book to Hannon Library, which can be found in the 1st floor New Book alcove (HN153.5.P55 2015).

LNAP Fall2015 EmilyWednesday night, the first floor of Hannon Library transformed into a multi-station work party machine.

Hannon Library and the Learning Commons hosted the tri-annual Long Night Against Procrastination, a Texas-sized version of a late night study session. Throughout the night, library staff worked together to keep the doors open late, help students relax, assist with research, and hand out snacks. The event gives students a night to reduce stress while simultaneously studying.

This term’s Long Night had around a dozen individual stations, which offered everything from career advice to board games. Students packed the library throughout the night, munching on goodies and getting help on their essays.

LNAP Fall 2015 DottyIt was a good night, and we at Hannon Library cannot wait to do it all again next term. Be sure to mark your calendars, and join us winter term on February 10, 2016.
