Localist Shortcode

This shortcode ties into events.wfu.edu our localist events website and displays events based on the attributes on the shortcode. Many of our websites use this plugin to display events related to the content of that website. We also offer our University Events block for a more integrated look and feel.

UPDATE: Looks like the natural display for each of these seems off in our new theme. We should check to make sure all the css is being loaded for these and that there isn’t any non-secure styles/scripts. Also images are broken in the API shortcode so we probably need to ensure we are using https for these.

Shortcode: Localist Widget

The Localist widget shortcode ties into the basic widget building functionality localist provides. It comes wrapped with html and has very little ability to change the html structure.

Shortcode: Localist API

The Localist API shortcode has more parameters and can return a more custom set of events returned in json format allowing the html display of the events to be controlled on our end.

Exhibit: Poets and Publishers of the Black Arts Movement

The 1960s and 70s saw a flowering of African-American poetry unprecedented in American literary history. The poets of the Black Arts Movement fused artistic experimentation with political engagement, giving voice to the complexities of the Black experience in the years immediately following the civil rights movement. Unlike previous generations of African-American poets, many of these writers were able to make their work available to the public through Black-owned and operated presses, thus freeing themselves from the editorial control of the white literary establishment. Black publishing outlets such as Dudley Randall’s Broadside Press, Haki Madhubuti’s Third World Press, and many others, allowed for a diversity of voices within the African-American community while also linking individual poets to a larger cultural enterprise.

This exhibit draws on ZSR Special Collections’ extensive holdings to highlight the achievements of both the poets and the people who published them during these pivotal decades in American history.

Executive Education - Authentic and Effective Leadership Workshop

Employee engagement studies, conducted by Gallup, consistently show on average in the U.S. only 33% of workers are highly engaged. Results from these studies find that authentic, inspirational leaders who provide their people a sense of purpose, invest time in developing their people, and approach leadership from a “coach” perspective versus a directive top-down boss, greatly enhance employee engagement and team performance. Thus, the key to high team performance and employee engagement is authentic and effective leadership.

This 1-day program will provide the participant with the foundation of authentic and effective leadership, while exploring who the leader is as a person. Fully understanding the factors driving behavior enhances leadership authenticity, assists in building trust with others, increases leader effectiveness, and contributes to personal fulfillment and team performance.

All the King's Men: Status and Power in Africa

Ornate tools of war and visually striking regalia are some of the objects on display that demonstrate how masculinity is emphasized in traditional African politics. The exhibit also features many objects linked to the history of colonization, when European powers displaced the traditional systems of governance, and their own ideas about masculinity were incorporated. The objects’ backstories chart the rise and fall of status symbols that are still relevant today as cultural heritage.
