2022 Open Access Week – UCSD is OPEN FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE!

International OA Week https://www.openaccessweek.org/theme/en

Happy Open Access Week 2022! This week our plan is to highlight UC San Diego research, scholarship, and art related to the theme, “Open for Climate Justice.” During #OAWeek, we’ll tweet about publications authored by a diverse range of authors and initiatives happening on our campus. At #UCSD, we have entire centers devoted to bringing about climate justice with everyone from undergraduates, faculty, and community partners working to “make our world a better place.”

The UC San Diego Center for Global Justice has devoted a research cluster to #climatejustice http://gjustice.ucsd.edu/climate-justice/. Check the CFP for an #OA Lecture Video & Digital #OATextbook Chapter to contribute to the 10 UC campus course, Bending the Curve & @eScholarship #OER on climate science, “Bending the Curve: Climate Change Solutions” 

The #UCSD Center for Global Justice’s founding director is our own political science professor, Fonna Forman. Dr. Forman has written chapters for the OER as well as participated in our #OAW event last year as part of a faculty and student panel on equitable & affordable course materials.

The Center on Global Justice is committed to research, advocacy and consultation on climate disruption and climate justice, working at top-down and bottom-up scales simultaneously to slow the warming, as well as to help vulnerable communities adapt to a warming climate.  New technologies, policies and financial tools must be paired with new social strategies, to produce meaningful change.

Through the UCSD Community Stations, we are committed to advancing new methods of climate education and participatory climate action in close partnership with underserved communities across the San Diego-Tijuana border region.

One of our own won the inaugural 2019 California Young Book Collector’s Prize

Matthew is committed not only to providing access to his award winning collection related to his PhD research, but is intent on inspiring other scholars to actively participate in open access. He is an active member of several working groups in the library, one the library’s student advisory group and the Scholarly Communications Working Group. We’re thrilled that Matthew Wills’ collection will be on display at the 52nd California International Antiquarian Book Fair, February 8-10, 2019. #openaccess @ABAA49

“First place was awarded to Matthew Wills, of [UC San Diego], whose collection is on the theme of “Anti-Confucian Propaganda in Mao’s China”. In Matthew’s words:  “[As an] historian and bibliographer, I research the history of book publishing and propaganda in Chairman Mao’s China. In particular, I study books that show the Communist state’s hostility to China’s Confucian traditions.” For a time the state-controlled publishers printed “hundreds of propaganda books critiquing Confucian ideas”, and it is these primary source materials which constitute the foundation of Matthew’s collection, which has approximately 700 unique items, including editions in different languages, comic books, and even five volumes printed in Braille.” Northern California Chapter of the Antiquarian Bookseller’s Association of America announcement
