We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

CRY HAVOC! Poetry of War and Remembrance, 1968-2008

Stephen Richard Kerbs Exhibit Area
March 15, 2009
April 8, 2009

An Exhibit for the Lannan Literary Symposium and Festival

When the story of the massacre at My Lai, Vietnam, In March 1968 was finally revealed in the press, everything changed. Public opinion swung against the war, activism raged, and America began to withdraw from a fight that had lost all legitimacy. Poets, artists and activists remind us that all war is a failure of the moral imagination, and teach us through their language and social practice to guard against forgetting. Poetry restores to us the horror of conflict and offers paths toward its transcendence. Poets, critics, journalists and visual artists will converge to recall the lessons of war over this violent half century, and to plot new strategies for peaceful futures.

This exhibition features the participants in the 2009 Lannan Literary Symposium and Festival by drawing attention to some of their works. The Symposium will be held on March 30 and 31, 2009, at Georgetown University.
