MUSE Workshop @ MSU
Nov 14 – Nov 18 all-day

In 2018-19, the Department of English will pilot a new program, MUSE: Mentoring Underrepresented Scholars in English, with a special fall workshop for prospective graduate students in English. The inaugural MUSE workshop will be held from November 14-18th, 2018 at Michigan State University, in East Lansing, MI. The Fall 2018 MUSE workshop is directed at prospective English graduate students from underrepresented groups, including students of African American, Latinx and Chicanx, Asian American, Native American, and Indigenous descent. The all-expenses-paid workshop will allow students to learn more about the English Department, visit graduate classes and co-curricular activities (lectures, film screenings, Research Workshops), meet with our graduate faculty and graduate students, and receive individual feedback from the faculty on their application materials for graduate school. Students will also have the opportunity to present their research to faculty. The workshop aims to introduce prospective students to a robust culture of mentoring essential for a rewarding graduate school experience, and a thriving life in academia.

Faculty + Student Workshop: On Environment @ 126A Kresge Art Center | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Grab some coffee and cake and join the discussion as we hear from faculty in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design and a special guest in our new series of Faculty and Student Workshops. Each workshop features a different theme, inviting the audience to peek behind the scenes into the research practice of our faculty. The second slice, titled On Environment, looks at how artists, designers, and scholars research the challenges that human society poses to environment.

In this workshop we will hear from Edgar Cardenas, Zach Kaiser Associate Professor of Graphic Design and Experience Architecture, Kelly Salchow MacArthur Associate Professor of Graphic Design, and Lily Woodruff Associate Professor of Art History, and Visual Culture.

Special guest Edgar Cardenas is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow for the MSU Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I), he holds a Ph.D. in Sustainability from Arizona State University and conducts research at the art-science interface. He recently completed an Andrew W. Mellon Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan with the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities where he focused on approaches for fostering productive artist-scientist collaborations. As a social scientist, he focuses on social creativity and small group dynamics, exploring which processes and mechanisms support creative collaborations. As an interdisciplinary artist, he investigates the ecological, cultural, and technological subtleties of human/environment relationships. He also is a member of the indigenous artist collective, Radio Healer. As a member of the C4I community, he will be leading research on various ways in which art can inform and enhance interdisciplinary research across campus.
