05/22/2014

CORVALLIS, Ore. – The College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University will host a Scholarship and Creativity Fair to showcase the research and creative accomplishments of its faculty on Thursday, May 29.

The fair runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on the Club Level in Reser Stadium in Corvallis. It is free and open to the public.

The event will include interactive displays, demonstrations, musical performances and more. Each of the college’s six schools will have a space to feature two or three projects. Faculty will compete in a 60-second “lecture slam,” where they present important findings and insights in a minute or less. Creative writers will team with a wind instrument group to perform. 

“The goal of the fair is to bring the work of humanities faculty to the public in an accessible way,” said Peter Betjemann, an associate professor of English in the School of Art, Literature and Film and a coordinator of the event.
