What is Protest Literature?

There is no one definition of protest literature—it can encompass many points of view and many media, including poetry, prose, fiction, and non-fiction.  What ties all protest literature together are two common characteristics: protest literature points out problems in a society, and suggests possible solutions to those problems.  Good protest literature can help you see points of view far outside your own, and inspire you to think in new ways about the world around you.  These are just few examples of protest literature you can find at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library:

The Lexington Line Available at the Library

Copies of the new issue of the Lexington Line is available at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library. This Autumn/Winter 2016 edition features articles about Small Girl PR, albums reviews, a spotlight on Professor Hallay, student photoshoots and more. I personally really enjoyed reading about the album reviews for top 12 albums of 2016 on pages 24-27. Beyonce’s Lemonade, Anderson .Paak’s Malibu, and Frank Ocean’s Blonde were some of my personal favorites that were featured. There is even an article written by Madison Ross who is the Digital Content Editor of the magazine and a work study student here at Library as well. From pages 41-43, she discusses how the influences of both art and fashion can pursue philanthropy and good deeds. Both entities working together can produce a better world through responsible reflections of their time. Michelle Alvarez, another library work study is also the Marketing Director for the magazine. She helps gets advertisers, organizes the launch event, develops marketing initiatives to attract LIM College students and outside readers. Just last Thursday, November 10th there was a Lexington Line launch party at the opening of the Boohoo store in SoHo. The collaboration was a success, you can check out pictures/videos from the event searching the #lexline or #boohoostorenyc hashtags on Instagram.

If you would like to read a copy come pick one up at the reference desk here at the library or up at the writing center!
