Make your own cartonera with PanteraCartonera@Pitt and the Center for Creativity at this hands-on workshop.
The cartonera publishing trend began in Buenos Aires in 2003, and was organized by writers and artists who produced hand-made books at low-cost using recycled cardboard (thus the name "cartonera"). The books are produced in a collective-circular way, in which authors become designers, designers become creators, and creators become authors.
The phenomenon has expanded across the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Many have “recycled” the model, adapting it to their local contexts, communities, and social needs.
Basic materials will be supplied. If you have items that you would like to use that have a personal meaning to you, please bring them. Snacks will be provided!
PanteraCartonera@Pitt is a joint initiative between the Center for Latin American Studies and the University Library System.

A pioneering work for the history of veterans’ rights in Romania, this study brings into focus the laws and policies the state developed in response to the unprecedented human losses in World War I. It features in lively and accessible language the varied responses of veterans, widows and orphans to those policies. The analysis emphasizes how ordinary citizens became educated about and used state institutions in ways that highlight the class, ethnic, religious and gender norms of the day. The book offers a vivid case study of how disability as a personal reality for many veterans became a point of policy making, a story that has seen little scholarly interest despite the enormous populations affected by these developments.
Join Addverse, an international and multilingual poetry group that discusses, reads and translates poems in at least 4 languages, for their weekly meetings!
