"There is no striving with a forward girl; interdisciplinary explorations of affect" (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: "There is no striving with a forward girl; interdisciplinary explorations of affect"
Abstract: Through a serendipitous discovery six years ago, we came together to create a writing collaborative partnership that transformed how we work, how we feel about that work, and the directions that work has taken. Before joining forces, we had individual trajectories as a literary scholar of the nineteenth century and as a cognitive psychologist. Together we pursued a professional development opportunity to explore cross-disciplinary investigations of affect. We engage new areas of research not by building bridges to each other’s areas of expertise but by working together from the ground up to create unique foundations of knowledge. This process is full of curiosity, awe, and discovery. In this talk we tell the story of how we came together, what we have been working on, why it matters, and where we are headed. It is a story about how a leap of faith can reinvigorate your teaching and how that energy can transform the direction of your scholarship.

Teaching Tomorrow Today: Humanities, Arts, and STEMM in Conversation (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Teaching Tomorrow Today: Humanities, Arts, and STEMM in Conversation
Abstract: Questions about integration, of arts, humanities, STEM, medicine together, are shaped by discipline and context. Yet the overarching question that is central to the arts and humanities— what does it mean to be human?—invites scholars of all disciplines and fields into conversation. The humanities are crucial in responding to grand challenges because underlying any of these challenges are basic questions of who we are and how we ought to live. This panel discussion will explore questions about integration and ethos from vantage points in the humanities. What does reciprocity between arts, humanities, and STEMM mean? How can an integrative and ethical framing bring the humanities within reach of vulnerable populations? How can integrative approaches to humanities programs benefit general education, benefit graduate students? How might modern language study contribute to integration? After interactive discussion of these questions, the session will invite participants to practice a mapping exercise, a chance to converse and to do the hands-on work of designing connections.
