Laura Severin on the Perils and Rewards of Interdisciplinary Scholarship

November 18, 2019 @ 12:05 pm - 1:15 pm
Talley Student Union, Room 4270, 2610 Cates Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27606 United States

This presentation traces the history of NC State’s cluster hiring program (The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program), begun in 2011, and focuses on the challenges of Humanities and Social Sciences faculty, first to be included in the program and then to establish effective partnerships with STEM faculty. Some of the difficulties have involved educating STEM faculty as to the value of Humanities and Social Sciences research, communicating across disciplinary languages, and organizing effective teams across different disciplinary cultures. Despite the challenges of working across truly disparate disciplines, the program has demonstrated, as have others nationally, that successful collaborations are possible and rewarding.

POSTPONED: School Segregation in the American North

March 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Park Alumni Center, 2450 Alumni Drive
Raleigh, NC

Join us for the 3rd annual Don C. Locke Multicultural and Social Justice Symposium, where Gloria Ladson-Billings, president of the National Academy of Education, will deliver a keynote address titled “It’s ALL de jure: Turning a Critical Eye on the Northern Strategy.” The standard narrative about school segregation draws a dividing line between the North and South and claims that the South engaged in a deliberate strategy of legal apartheid by establishing separate and unequal schools. On the other hand, the North was said to be a part of a de facto school segregation project that “just happened” to be segregated because of neighborhood segregation. This talk argues Northern complicity in ensuring that Black students would not be able to access quality education.
