The Green Movement is Not White

Library Fishbowl
The Green Movement, or Environmental Movement, is seen mostly as a "white movement." We do not normally associate the green movement with environmental racism or (in)justice. This workshop will talk about how the green movement affects people, barriers and possible strategies to get people of color more engaged in the environmental justice movement.

Presenter: Gier Hernandez

Poor Whites and the Paradox of Privilege

Library Fishbowl
This talk focuses on the way we DON'T talk about poverty in the U.S. Poor white folk are the largest poverty group in the country, yet they are seldom presented in the media or in conversations about marginalization. My work looks at how poor whites carve out their paradoxical identity within the glowing assumption of white privilege.

Presenter: Dr. Kirby Moss, Journalism

Criminality of Blackness: Carrying Skittles and Arizona

Science A
The “Not-Guilty” verdict of George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin trial sparked nationwide rallies of protest against the verdict. Thus the members of the Black Student Union want to open this conversation to give public space to our voices regarding the verdict. Many of our members are the “Trayon Martins” right here in Humboldt County.

Presenters: Terrevia Shirley and Lomika Purdy

Intermediate Knitting

Recreation and Wellness Center
Learn the traditional approach to knitting socks on double point needles. Knit ribbed and stockinette stitched cuffs to determine your gauge, work a classic short row heel, knit the foot and finish off with well shaped toes and the kitchener stitch. Learn how to knit with two colors; weaving in ends as you go, how to carry yarn up the side of your work, the best ways to join a new ball, how to stripe in rib. Finally, learn to adapt the pattern for any foot size—from child to men’s size 13. Discover that a single pattern as designed by textile instructor Crystal Estelle‐Dobbs will give you the knowledge to knit socks for the whole family, from light weight to bulky hiking socks. Students must have beginning knit skills and be able to maintain a consistent gauge.
7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Book of the Year Reading

Goodwin Forum
College of the Redwoods and Humboldt State University’s 2013/14 Book of the Year author Jim Dodge will read selections from his novel Fup twice in November. Dodge will read first at HSU on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Goodwin Forum. And at CR, he will read in the New Theater on Friday, Nov. 15 at 10:00 a.m. A book signing will follow both readings which are free and open to the public.

Fup, originally published in 1983, is a work of fiction that tells the story of Jake Santee, his grandson “Tiny,” and Fup, their adopted mallard living on a farm in the hills of western Sonoma County. We also learn about the back-story that brings Jake, a gambler who travels the West, and Tiny, a young man who loves building fences on a farm with no livestock, together with Fup, an eccentric duck with a fondness for drinking moonshine.

The Los Angeles Times described Fup as a “contemporary California fable of transcendent charm, wisdom, and beauty.” The book was re-released in 2011 in a new, updated edition and can be found in both the HSU and CR bookstores.

Born in Sonoma County, Jim Dodge grew up in Texas, Wyoming, southern California, and Labrador. He received his M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa. Since 1995, Jim has been a faculty member in the English Department at Humboldt State University.
