Over the past few decades, undergraduate research has moved from an elective activity that engaged a handful of faculty members and students to a central part of the undergraduate experience at many colleges and universities. The Summer 2017 CUR Quarterly will examine how undergraduate research impacts the landscape of higher education of the future. How does current practice prepare students to be the faculty members of the future? How does the centrality of inquiry-based learning affect the notion of disciplinarity? How does undergraduate research evolve to include a focus on innovation and impact---i.e., turning research findings into applications that change lives?

Creativity and Knowledge Cultures

Creativity is an object of study, a process of knowledge production, and a contemporary cultural obsession that crosses many disciplines. This special issue of Knowledge Cultures (http://www.addletonacademicpublishers.com/knowledge-cultures) seeks to generate new and potentially disruptive conversations about creativity by paying attention to the diversity – and, perhaps, even, incommensurability – of knowledge practices around creativity that exist across a broad range of disciplinary fields.

Spectatorship and Observation in the Medieval Arts (Kalamazoo 2017)

deadline for submissions:

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.

I seek two other papers for a panel on the alternately symbiotic and antagonistic relationship between Broadway and Hollywood--as entertainment industries, cultural destinations, and/or aesthetics. The circulation of talent and content between Broadway and Hollywood obviously has a long and complex history, from Hollywood's poaching of Broadway talent during the early sound era to its bankrolling of Broadway shows as early as the 1930s.
