More widely read in Mexico than any other form of cheap print, comics provide a window into the archetypes, stories, and cultural scripts that influenced generations of readers, rich and poor. A new exhibit, ¡Viva México! A Comic Book History of Mexico opening March 16 in Special Collections, explores the spectacular rise of comic books in twentieth-century Mexico and how the government and commercial publishers have used comics to promote nationalism.

Captive Paradise: A History of Hawaii
Friday, April 17, 2015 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm
James L. Haley

James L. Haley will talk about Captive Paradise: A History of Hawaii, which is the only state to have once been a royal kingdom. After its “discovery” by Captain Cook in the late 18th Century, Hawaii was fought over by European powers determined to take advantage of its position as the crossroads of the Pacific. While Hawaii’s royal rulers adopted Christianity, they fought to preserve their ancient ways. But the American sugar barons sealed their fate and in 1893, the Marines overthrew Lili’uokalani, the last queen of Hawaii.
