CFI January Symposium provides tools for scholarship

Where are you in your scholarly journey? Developing a vision? Designing surveys? Analyzing data? Needing to devote more time to writing? Looking to publish?

Wherever you are in the process, the Center for Faculty Innovation’s January Symposium 2013 can help. The two-day event, Jan. 3-4 at Rose Library on East Campus, will provide JMU faculty members with the time, tools, strategies and encouragement to advance their agendas and passions for scholarship.

In between morning and afternoon sessions, a Voices of Scholarship Networking Lunch will be held each day from noon to 1 p.m. On Thursday, Jan. 3, Dr. Chris Arndt, professor of history and associate dean of the College of Arts and Letters, will present “The Future of Digital Humanities: Scholarship or the Latest Fad?” On Friday, Jan. 4, art professor Gary Freeburg and Dr. George Johnson, professor of media arts and design, will present their recent collaboration, “An Artist’s Journey to the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.”
