Spread the word! The Citadel is marking The Day of the Dead, “El Dia de los Muertos”—a unique Latin American celebration—with an altar on display inside Daniel Library, and a screening of Disney's film "Coco."
The Day of the Dead altar incorporates photos to commemorate loved ones who have already passed on. Anyone interested in having a photo displayed of a relative who has passed away may bring a 5"x7" photo (in a frame) to The Department of History Office in Capers Hall (4th Floor, Rm. 430) before October 31. We invite the entire Citadel Family to participate by commemorating your relatives, visiting the display, and attending the movie screening.

Details: Dr. Ling Chen is giving a public lecture on The Sacred Island of Okinoshima and the struggle to place the island on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The island is considered a kami (deity or spirit) that guards Japan from foreign intruders or malevolent seaborne forces. Inhabited only by one Shinto priest, women are prohibited from access to the island which makes this an interesting presentation given Ling Chen is a woman! Just last year the island gained UNESCO status and Professor Chen's talk will shed light on Shinto beliefs, the archaeology and history of the island, and the political agendas and conflicts revealed during the process to obtain historic UNESCO status.
