Celebrating GW's Faculty Authors

The George Washington University - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 15:10
April 15, 2014

On Tuesday, May 13, from 3-5pm the GW Libraries will host a Celebration of Faculty Authors. If you are a faculty member and have published a significant work since Jan. 1, 2013, please email the citation to gelman@gwu.edu, so that we may honor your accomplishments.

As the hub of the university's intellectual life, not only does the library furnish the materials of scholarly research, but it also distributes the fruits of that research to the university community and the wider world, making today's intellectual work available for generations to come. As part of our stewardship of faculty publications, we want to recognize those faculty who have published a significant work in the past year.  

Have you authored a monograph, journal article, or refereed conference paper? Edited an anthology, a scholarly edition, or collection of essays? Authored a substantial creative or popular work? Has this work appeared in print or online since Jan. 1, 2013? Recognizing that disciplinary conventions, as well as personal and professional commitments, make it difficult to define "significant" in a universal way, we invite faculty, deans, and department chairs to identify the work -- whether their own or by their peers -- that deserves special acknowledgment. Those authors will be invited to a reception hosted by Geneva Henry, the University Librarian and Vice-Provost of GW Libraries and C. Dianne Martin, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs.  

We welcome your suggestions as to how to improve this process. By highlighting the intellectual work of faculty across the disciplines, we aim to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation, as well as to say thanks for a job well done.
