Not Satire: University Holding “Nap-Ins” So Students Can “Dream Of Diversity”
A NEW INTERACTIVE art installation is opening the door for students to share their future dreams of diversity through “Nap-Ins” in Morris Library.
Student coordinator Marissa Amposta is facilitating four sleep sessions in March where students will be given the opportunity to nap for two hours in the rotunda during the library’s operating hours.
The sessions are meant to “internally generate student dreams of diversity,” said Amposta, a senior from Mundelein studying art.
“The nap-ins are part of the internal journey to diversity,” Amposta said. “All dreams start while sleeping.”
The nap-ins are part of the Dreaming Diversity Art Installation, which was established Monday. The exhibit consists of a 15-foot-long fabric scroll hanging directly in the middle of the library rotunda that has students’ dreams written on pieces of fabric and paper.
A labyrinth will also be set up in the rotunda surrounding the scroll to “help guide students to their dreams,” Amposta said.
“The maze is sort of a metaphor for the general path to diversity,” Amposta said. “It takes a while to reach, and it’s complicated.”
On March 31, the dreams pinned on the scroll will be discussed at a women’s panel in Guyon Auditorium held by the art and women, gender and sexuality studies departments.
“People forget we are still working for equality,” said Nicole Tabor, graduate assistant coordinator of the Women’s Resource Center. “It might never happen if we stop fighting.”
The art installation is part of the Women’s History Month events planned throughout March to highlight local women, Tabor said. There will be two other art displays throughout the month, which will honor female trailblazers in the business world.

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
