Thursday, December 4, 2014 | 10:00 – 11:30 AM Room 3213, Third Floor of the JSU Student Center
Co-sponsored by JSU ADVANCE, this workshop explains how faculty members can develop international professional reputations and establish and manage multi-institutional collaborations. It will focus on network development via professional association memberships and international experiences; multi-institutional projects with NGOs, policymakers and practitioners; and multi-institutional research projects with other academic institutions and industry. This workshop is designed for mid-career faculty.
As this workshop marks the end of the calendar year, we will also have some festive refreshments and giveaways for faculty participants. We invite all faculty to take a break with us and participate.
Dr. David Akombo and Prof. Andrew Lewis demonstrate elements of their research project, "Academic and Psychological Effects of Engaging Learners in Live Jazz Music Improvisation." (Dr. Taunjah Bell is a co-investigator.) This presentation was one of the Center's Brown Bag Research Talks featuring works-in-progress and recent research by Jackson State faculty members.
Join us for an exploration of the intersectionality of sound, image and the act of drawing! When does sound become noise or music? How does image mediate our experience of sound? How can we convey the act of drawing as a meditation and not simply a process?
Prof. Chung-Fan Chang, Dr. Ivan Elezovic and Prof. Mark Geil present their multimedia project, "Drawing Noise," on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. in the classroom of JSU INNOVATE on the first floor of the H.T. Sampson Library. The JSU Center for University Scholars hosts this brown bag research talk and provides light refreshments. Feel free to bring your lunch and bring a friend!
