Three faculty in widely diverse academic fields – criminal justice, business and history – will give brief presentations from their respective disciplines in the second installment of the “Curious and Creative Conversation” series on Wednesday, March 6.

Each faculty member has 10 minutes to share details about a scholarly, research or creative project they’ve completed. The four-part series, sponsored by the Office of Student Creative Activity and Research, is held in the Reed Library Garden Area, beginning at 10 a.m. It is free and open to the public.

Featured faculty and their research projects for March 6 are:

  • Department of Sociocultural and Justice Sciences Associate Professor Michael Aiello, "Experimental Storytelling: Using Vignettes to Better Understanding Police Recruitment.”
  • School of Business Professor Mojtaba Seyedian, “Remote Work and its Impact on Business.”
  • Department of History Professor Mary Beth Sievens, “The Ridiculous and the Mundane: How Historians Make Meaning out of Ordinary Lives.”

In 15-minute segments, each faculty member discusses the value of various research and creative activity and considers ways in which each views their respective fields intersecting. A question and answer session concludes the program.

Guests are invited to attend the series to learn about outcomes resulting from scholarship and creative activity in various fields and consider how scholarly and creative work varies from discipline to discipline.
