Scholarly and Creative Showcase Series

Framingham State University’s faculty and librarians produce innovative and inspiring scholarly and creative work. CELTSS seeks to celebrate and showcase this thought-provoking work by participating in the culture of dynamic virtual interviews and panels that has been born of the pandemic with The Scholarly and Creative Showcase Series, a stage to showcase this work.

Faculty and Librarians have been invited (whether they have recently completed a sabbatical or not) to apply to share their scholarly and creative work with FSU’s faculty, staff, and students, the wider Boston and MetroWest communities, and beyond.

The first Series event on October 12, 2022 featured a panel of FSU faculty discussing their experience employing and creating Open Educational Resources for STEM. This spring, we look forward to hosting a conversation among five members of the multidisciplinary MotherScholar Collective concerning the intersection of motherhood and academia.

A Window into the Formation and Research of the MotherScholar Collective

Wednesday, April 12, 2023, 6-8pm: Virtual Meeting

"I know we have a lot to say about the situation... but, like, who has the time?" Join members of the MotherScholar Collective, a multidisciplinary research group comprised of mothers of young children, in a discussion of their research and issues related to the intersection of parenting and work, choosing collaboration over competition, and integrating the professional and the personal. Panel members include: Maggie Campbell-Obaid, Ph.D., Katharina A. Azim, Ph.D., Ivanna Richardson, M.A., Helen Ho, Ph.D., and Kathryn Frazier, Ph.D..

FSU faculty members shared their experiences using, adapting, and creating Open Educational Resources for STEM courses with an eye to improving equity in the classroom. Panel members included: Santosha Adhibhatta, Benjamin Atchison, Lawrence McKenna, Amanda Simons, and Patricia Lynne (Moderator). Join us in person in the Alumni Room or click here to start the Zoom meeting.

FSU faculty/librarians will be offered a $150 honorarium per event. (Multiple presenters at a single event would split the $150 honorarium. If the speaker envisions an event with multiple presenters, CELTSS would work with you to seek additional funding from CELTSS, Arts & Ideas, and/or the Council on Diversity and Inclusion.) Each event will be one hour long and should consist of a 45-minute interview, panel, or roundtable, and 15 minutes for questions from the audience.
