Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit 10/20/20 - 12/20/21 at 12:00 am

Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit

Inspired by the full-sized Nunatsiavut kayak given to the College in 1891 and on display in the museum gallery for over 50 years, this exhibit explores making and using traditional kayaks from Greenland, Labrador, and beyond. It features over 20 model kayaks and umiaks, as well as associated equipment, historic film and photographs, and the centerpiece of the exhibit, a full size replica of the 1891 Kajak created for this exhibit.
 
You can explore the full object-based exhibit, as well as various multimedia components, online. Recordings of lectures and other virtual events during the 2020-21 academic year will also be posted here, so be sure to check back.

A reading by and conversation with Gary Phillips 02/10/21 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A reading by and conversation with Gary Phillips

A reading by and conversation with Gary Phillips, author of Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem

Set in the political, artistic and cultural crucible that was the Harlem Renaissance, this novel re-imagines real life North Pole explorer Matthew Henson in the pulp tradition. With the help of his pal Bessie Coleman, America’s first black aviatrix, he contends with gangster Dutch Schultz, numbers boss Queenie St. Clair and Nikola Tesla whose Death Ray he must keep out of the clutches of a plutocrat planning a coup.

When: Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. ET

Where: Online at https://bowdoin.zoom.us/j/99063961026

Gary Phillips has published various novels, comics, novellas, short stories and edited or co-edited several anthologies. Publishers Weekly said of his recent retro pulp novel Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem, “The result is a tropey and diverting adventure, distinguished by its Jazz Age Harlem setting and unflinching depiction of 1920s race relations.”
