The 3rd annual Coastal Scholars Showcase that highlights the work of the College of Coastal Georgia's faculty and staff will return this year and will be presented in a virtual format. The showcase has become an annual exposition of faculty and staff's scholarly research and creative expressions. This year's theme is "Resiliency and Restoration in the Face of Adversity: Promotion Growth and Educational Sustainability." The showcase will launch Thursday, March 18 at 9 a.m., and on Friday, March 19, viewers can watch a keynote address delivered by College of Coastal Georgia Professor of English Dr. David Mulry at 5 p.m. Mulry will discuss his work In the shadows of the "Heart of Darkness": What Conrad kept hidden, and what he revealed. The community is invited to attend the showcase online and learn what faculty and staff have been doing in and outside of the classroom.
This year's showcase is organized by the Faculty Development Committee, chaired by Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Neda Moinolmolki.
"The Faculty Development Committee is exhilarated to launch this event. Despite unprecedented challenges, colleagues across disciplines have persevered in their contribution to scholarship and creative endeavors on resiliency and restoration," Moinolmolki said. "We believe it's no better time than now to showcase their applicable work."
Faculty and staff will present their works and contributions to their disciplines, which include research, creative expressions, and published works. In the virtual format, there will be pre-recorded presentations, and posters will be available online for viewing at attendees' leisure. Attendees will also be able to submit comments and questions to specific presenters for further dialogue and discussions. Presentations will cover a range of topics, such as poetry, American history, Psychology, teaching and learning methods, service-learning, conservation, and Mathematics.
"We hope this showcase will inspire and guide our local and campus community on how to persevere through challenging times," Moinolmolki said. "Moreover, we hope this showcase will foster a stronger relationship between our college and the local community, creating opportunities for further dialogue and collaborations on common community interests."
