Last Faculty Research Forum of 2015 Fiscal Year

CSU libraries will host the last Faculty Research Forum April 7, 2015 at 12 p.m. on the first floor of the Simon Schwob Memorial Library. The lecture will feature Dr. Jennifer Newbrey, Assistant Professor of Biology, and Dr. Gary Sprayberry, Chair of the History and Geography Department.

This faculty forum will conclude the CSU libraries’ Faculty Research Forum for the fiscal year. Newbrey will present “Eastern Bluebirds in West-Central Georgia” and her discussion will be followed by the Department Chair’s presentation over “The Atlanta Pop Festival.”

The Assistant Professor, Newbrey, will discuss the features and importance of Eastern Bluebirds in the West-Central Georgia area. “Effects of West Nile Virus Infection and Immune Function on Female Yellow-headed Blackbird Reproduction” is one of the many works by Newbrey. She earned her PhD from North Dakota State University and also earned her Master and Bachelor of Science at the University of Wisconsin.

Sprayberry’s most recent professional works include his latest “One Doesn’t Integrate on Sunday: The Creation of the Human Relations Council and the Origins of Desegregation in Anniston, Alabama, 1961-1963” in the April 2008 edition of the Alabama Review. The Jacksonville State University alumni will discuss the iconic 1970 Atlanta International Pop Festival that features many musicians such as Canned Heat, Jimi Hendrix, the Chamber Brothers, and Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductee, Johnny Jenkins.

All patrons, students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to attend this Faculty Research Forum. Before each faculty member’s presentation, a lunch will be provided in the Forum Area of the Schwob library. For more information, review and browse the CSU libraries official page.
