Why did cuneiform die off? How did Spanish come to dominate the Americas? What effect does a Gospel manuscript have on the spread of books? Which country changed how it wrote a children’s story after its revolution? Who helped make Korean the most efficient script in the world? Join students and faculty for an investigation into these questions and more during a celebration for the student-curated exhibit “Writing and Power.” Students from EngComp 132D, “Cuneiform to Coding: Library and Curatorial Writing,” will give presentations on rare materials from UCLA Library Special Collections, as the Department of English and Writing Programs announce the inception of the Professional Writing Minor. The exhibit will be on display in the East Exhibit Case of the Charles E. Young Research Library from March 11 through March 28.
