CFP, spr2021 Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research: Undergraduate Research at Community Colleges

updated: 
Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - 12:19pm
Elizabeth Foxwell / Council on Undergraduate Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 25, 2020

Undergraduate research has proliferated at community colleges over the last decade through course-based research experiences, multi-institutional collaborations, and federal funding. The spring 2021 Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR), guest edited by Jim Hewlett (Finger Lakes Community College-SUNY), will examine undergraduate research at community colleges. How is undergraduate research implemented at community and technical colleges? How is undergraduate research used to train the workforce? How have community colleges institutionalized undergraduate research?

The Tunnel at 25 Project

updated: 
Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - 12:17pm
Ted Morrissey
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

William H. Gass’s magnum Opus The Tunnel turns 25 in 2020, and it’s been just over fifty years since parts of the novel began appearing in print in 1969; thus, it may be an appropriate time to reassess Gass’s massive work, which was met with a wide range of reactions when it came out in 1995, from effusive praise to bewilderment to outright hostility.

The primary goal of this project is to direct attention to The Tunnel, which has become one of those great books (no matter how one defines great) which is rarely read. In fact, on April 9, 2020, Lithub.com published a list of “The 50 Best Contemporary Novels over 500 Pages” – “Long Books, Worth Your Time” – and The Tunnel was not among them.

Climate change is the existential crisis of this century, affecting biodiversity, ecosystems, and all aspects of human life. This is a topic of enormous breadth, complexity, and particular urgency with respect to knowledge, innovation, collaboration, advocacy, and activism. The fall 2021 issue of the peer-reviewed Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore the broad and impactful work of undergraduate research in the context of climate change. Are there particular models of collaborative research vital for this work? Are there particular challenges associated with the interdisciplinary demands of the interrelated impacts of climate change?
