At 3pm, January 29th, Bob Neymeyer, Historian at the Grout Museum District, will speak on the challenges that German –Americans in Iowa were confronted with during World War I. The demand for “100% Americanism” was administered by both public and private groups who distrusted the loyalty of these hyphenated Americans. The tactics ranged from intimidation and vandalism to a state law stating English was the only legal language to be used in public.

Stop by the main floor of the Rod library to check out the Harlem Renaissance posters. This exhibit is the product of the class Theatrical Arts & Society (THEA 1002-05) and their study of the Harlem Renaissance. Working in groups, students found a compelling pieces of visual art from the movement and used them as inspiration for their own creative works. These creative works demonstrate an understanding of the artistic movement, the frustration and triumph of creating something out of nothing, and the process of making and learning.
