Monday, November 25, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:00

Presenters: David Tresilian, Michael Stoepel, Anabel Bachour, Habiba Nadim

What challenges can arise in conducting student-faculty research? And how might they be met? This Mellon seminar reports on lessons learned from the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA)-Library of Congress Faculty-Student Research Program in Washington DC, which allows undergraduate students and faculty mentors in the humanities to carry out research at the Library of Congress with assistance from specialist librarians. This year’s Program took place in Washington from 8 to 17 July, with an AUP team led by David Tresilian and Michael Stoepel and including AUP students Anabel Bachour and Habiba Nadim researching the theme of Coming to America: The Early Arab-American Generations. All four members of the AUP team will be present at this Mellon seminar to provide perspectives on this unique opportunity for faculty-student collaboration at one of the world's great research libraries.

Faculty, staff and students are welcome!
