Dr. Randi Polk, French Studies, featured at University Fellows Showcase April 10, 2017
On April 10-April 14, the University will hold its annual Scholars Week, a weeklong showcase of faculty and student scholarly and creative activity. As the kickoff to Scholars Week, the University will honor the inaugural class of University Fellows during the University Fellows Showcase, which rewards contributions to scholarship, collaboration with graduate and undergraduate students, and plans for distribution of scholarly work, among other criteria.
The University Fellows Showcase, display, and reception will take place on Monday, April 10, 5-7pm, in Walnut Hall, Keen Johnson.
Dr. Randi Polk, Assistant Professor and Section Coordinator for French Studies in the Dept. Languages, Cultures, and Humanities, was recognized in the inaugural group of University Fellows program, established by EKU President Benson in 2016 for her work “Captured Identities: Taken Photos and the Search for Self” and “Teaching Francophone Africa”. Each Fellowship award provides the recipient with one course of reassigned time for one semester, a $500 travel/equipment grant from the President's Research and Scholarship Fund, and a $500 matching grant from the nominating college.
We’re delighted to support and honor these outstanding faculty scholars and hope you will join us at the University Fellows Showcase.
