CSU Libraries to Sponsor Annual Faculty Research Forum Lectures

The Simon Schwob Memorial Library is to sponsor its Annual Faculty Research Forum, Tuesday, March 17, 2015 starting at 12:00 noon. The CSU Libraries will host the second, of three, faculty research forum lectures. There will be two distinguished speakers proceeded by a light lunch. The presentations will take place in the forum area of Schwob Library.

Assistant Professor, and Chair, of the Department of Political Science and MPA program, Frederick Gordon and The Threading Stone author and Auburn University alumni, Carey Wilkerson, will both present.

Gordon is known for other accomplishments outside of CSU’s campus; his first book, Freshwater Resources and Interstate Cooperation examines the nature of how nation states cooperate over scarce water resources. The Assistant Professor’s most recent work includes his 2014 article titled "Is the Executioner Wrong?" which explores how certain teaching controversies can enhance college student writing.

Wilkerson, an English professor at CSU since 2007, is greatly involved in the creative writing and poetry sector in the Columbus area, nationally, and as a published, performing and prolific literary artist. Many of Wilkerson’s professional works include numerous poetry selections in Polymatheme, Creative Loafing, and Frame. The Auburn graduate is also a recipient of the Lillian E. Smith Center for Creative Arts Writing Fellowship, twice.

Both CSU faculty members are to conduct a light dialogue, open for inquiries, after their presentations. Students, as well as, faculty and staff members are encouraged to attend the CSU libraries second faculty forum lecture. For more information, please see official CSU libraries webpages for additional details.
