FYI



Book it to Nigeria
Funso Afolayan, associate professor of history at UNH, and his Modern World History class are running a book drive to benefit students at Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria. This is Afolayan’s second book drive for the university, which relies heavily on outside support. Collection boxes are located in buildings around the Durham campus, including the Memorial Union Building and Dimond Library. All books in good condition, regardless of age or subject, will be accepted and students are encouraged to donate their textbooks at the end of the semester. Donations are also being accepted to cover the cost of shipping the books in a large cargo container to Nigeria at the end of May.

Author Jared Diamond visits campus

Jared Diamond, professor of geography and physiology at UCLA, signs a copy of his new book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed at UNH’s sixth annual Undergraduate Research Conference. His previous book, Guns, Germs and Steel, won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction. Collapse explores the reasons why advanced societies like the Mayans, Easter Islanders and Anasazi seem to suddenly disappear and how grave conflicts like the Rwandan genocide in current societies bring a society to the point of collapse.
