If we follow the light of Albert Camus and use the sea as a metaphor, we explore how “aesthetics inhabit and define the Mediterranean as a common cultural horizon founded on difference.” Maltese-born author John Badacchino provides a wonderfully rich and inspiring talk on
As a TC intern and future librarian, I spend a fair amount of time looking for things at the library. It will probably come as no surprise to any of you to find out that TC has an incredible collection of historical children’s literature. Thinking you too may be curious to see what lives in the closed stacks, I’ve scanned and posted some highlights from our stellar collection. These posts will be (mostly) in chronological order and I'll try to contextualize with fun facts as I find them.
