Make It A Double Singularity Of Fredric Jameson On The Rocks: The 2011-2012 Avenali Lecture

Fredric Jameson, the esteemed literary theorist and critic (as well as a man whose books have appeared on this blog many times), will be giving the 2011-2012 Avenali Lecture this Tuesday night (February 28) at 6pm at the Chevron Auditorium in the International House. This lecture is titled "The Aesthetics of Singularity." To commorate leap day, a follow up panel discussion with Fredric Jameson, Whitney Davis, Martin Jay, Colleen Lye, and Robert Kaufman will take place Wednesday (February 29) from 12 to 2pm in the Maude Fife Room, 315 Wheeler Hall--and to think this day didn't even exist a year ago. These events are sponsered by the the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities at UC Berkeley and are made possible thanks to the generous gift of Peter and Joan Avenali.

Below are a few of the many books written by Fredric Jamson in the Graduate Services Collection. Come read a few in anticipation of this great event. Enjoy.

The Emperor's New Year's Clothes Rack: New Books In Graduate Services In January

The New Year brought resolutions to some of you, while it also brought new books to Graduate Services for some of you to use. What's more, these books have a shelf life longer than most resolutions, as they are usually much harder to break. I mean, just look around Graduate Services. You don't see many broken books lying around do you. There might be books about breaks, gaps, and various lacunae. But not many broken books. No, not very many broken books at all. And speaking of books, some good ones arrived while most students were still enjoying their winter break. The Baudrillard Dictionary came in holding hands with the new revised Deleuze Dictionary, and both were being escorted by a few new Foucault books. Poor little Les Annees d'Hiver, 1980-1985 by Felix Guattari followed hurriedly behind in his ill fitting English attire wondering what that damn Deleuze Dictionary had to say about him. Books by Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacques Ranciere strutted along in their au naturel French laughing a laugh no one could understand, while the volumes of animal poems by Ted Hughes ran wild around Allen Ginsberg's If Not Forever: A Letter to Jack Kerouac, which Wendell Berry's WIndow Poems pleaded with to be a bit more transparent as an animal poem nudged his nose between his pages. Yes, it was a crazy January here in Graduate Services and many other books had a good time too. Too many to talk about them all right now though. Let's just say The Empire of Signs might or might not have played a part in The Original Accident. Oh, and by the way, the Foucault books seemed to really like their ill fitting attire. Enjoy.

The Notebooks of Robert Frosty the Snowman: New Books In Graduate Services In December

A Santa's bag full of books arrived here in Graduate Services before Christmas this year. I am talking a good haul for the month of December my friend. Just scroll on down and take a look see. I bet there are a few down there you hope wind up in your stocking the morning of the 25th. I'm fired up for the second volume of the Letters of Samuel Beckett myself. I just hope my stocking can hold it up without falling into the fire place, as these letters do not look to be minimal in the least. Hey, I love the Graduate Services collection, but sometimes I need to read at home. And not only can you not take books out of Graduate Services--no, not even me--but Graduate Services will be closed for this last week of December. You remember that earlier post don't you? Well, they will all be here when Graduate Services opens up again January 2nd, 2012. Enjoy them then and enjoy your time off from the library between now and then.

Our Trash, Your Treasure: Free Literary Journals and Magazines For the Taking in Graduate Services

History journals free for the public to take were put on the shelves as you walk into Graduate Services a few years ago. And they pretty much sat there until we removed them from the shelves six months ago. Not one to learn from our past actions, Graduate Services has once again graced these shelves with more, yet different, journals. And some popular magazines. Old issues of The Paris Review and other literary and poetry journals are now up on these shelves for you to take home with you as you enter or leave Graduate Services. There are also older issues of some popular magazines on these shelves too: National Geographic, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Book Review and Magazine to name four. Lots of one off issues of older poetry journals too. I mean like 1980s old. When Robert Pinsky and Stephen Greenblatt were teaching here old. But where did these come from you ask? Don't worry, we're not pulling these journals and magazines from the UC Berkeley library collection. No, these are duplicative copies donated from our sibling library, the Morrison Reading Room. And with the Library Book Store closing, they might be past their prime down there, but we have the shelf space for them right up here in Graduate Services. Come in and grab a few. You probably won't regret it.

Summer in Alaska: Winter Break Hours in Graduate Services

Starting December 18th and going through January 15th, Graduate Services will have abbreviated hours. Graduate Services will be open Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm. A month of no nights or weekends. That said, Graduate Services will probably then be like Alaska in the summer this next month. They don't have weekends there do they? If you have any other questions, I hope our hours online can help you out. They can be found here. Have fun winter breaking.
