Centennial Library

October 20, 2016

Laura Ullom is a junior English/Spanish double major who is interning at the Centennial Library this fall. She has put together a book display on visual media and talks about why she chose the topic:

“I chose to do a display on visual media, because I’ve always been fascinated by movies, video games, YouTube… (etc.) There are definitely some fun books on these topics (I found one in the library that step-by-step teaches readers how to program their own games, for example!), but I think there is also valuable information about how visual media is changing the way we as a culture think and learn. If you’re interested in the psychology of image-based learning, Neil Postman’s Amusing Ourselves to Death is a great resource. ”
