In past years the university hosted events recognizing MacEwan authors, including these books displayed at the 2018 event. This year, the Celebration of Scholarship has an expanded scope to recognize the range of scholarship at MacEwan.

Celebrating scholarship in all of its forms

MacEwan University’s Celebration of Scholarship on March 26 aims to capture the rich diversity and depth of scholarship and creative work produced by faculty and staff in 2018.

This year’s event will celebrate 50 works published or released in 2018, including peer-reviewed articles, books and book chapters, published business cases, and recordings from disciplines across campus.

Our hope is that people will be exposed to new areas of research that can spark new ideas, interests, and partnerships.

More than simply a way to celebrate colleagues and their accomplishments, the event is an opportunity for faculty members to disseminate their work and to potentially find collaborators.

“Our hope is that people will be exposed to new areas of research that can spark new ideas, interests, and partnerships,” says Robyn Hall, scholarly communications librarian. 

Three-minute talks from 21 faculty members who submitted works for this year’s event will highlight the origins of their work, the most interesting thing they learned along the way or how the work has informed their teaching.

Following these short talks, a reception will allow attendees to discuss everything from Theresa Chika-James’ work on the fundamentals of organizational change and Troy Donovan’s paper on harvesting urban honey to Paul Johnston’s efforts as producer/engineer on Under a Dancing Sky and Josh Toth’s book, Stranger America.

All works will be on a display in the library following the event and included in its collection and repository, Research Online at MacEwan (RO@M), making them accessible beyond the campus community.

Faculty and staff members with works being published or released in 2019 are invited to take part in the 2020 Celebration of Learning by going to the library’s website.
