Bicentennial Fellows to Present Scholarly Projects

A symposium on Wednesday, Nov. 7, will highlight faculty research and scholarship that have been chosen as part of the University’s Bicentennial Fellows Initiative.

The five projects involve seven faculty members and were selected for their contributions to the commemoration of Saint Louis University’s 200 years as an institution of higher learning through significant scholarly works in October 2016.

The symposium will run from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Pere Marquette Gallery, DuBourg Hall.

Thirty-one proposals representing diverse programs and scholarly activities across the University were submitted. Selection was based on the proposed project’s alignment with the objectives of the bicentennial, its theme, University mission, intellectual rigor and potential for contribution to the faculty member’s discipline.

“I am pleased that so many faculty took the time to submit very impressive proposals,” said Ellen Harshman, Ph.D., dean emerita and director of bicentennial planning. “And I want to congratulate our seven fellows. I look forward to seeing the results of their scholarship, which I’m sure will contribute to their disciplines far beyond SLU’s bicentennial.”

 The fellows are:

The fellows’ works will be included in a publication produced by the University.
