The Departments of WRAC and English will be working together this year to program events for graduate students related to careers outside of academia as well as non-faculty careers within the university (such as program coordinators, etc.). We are planning to hold our first workshop on Thursday, December 3, 3:00-5:00. We will follow up with additional details concerning speakers for this event, but we want to write now to ask you to save the date.
The presentation will examine ideas that Professor Aharon Katzir, one of the pioneers of Israeli science, published more than 50 years ago and how they stood the test of time. His theories range from thoughts about the origin of life, to modern day nanotechnology; from the first computers built in the 50’s at Weizmann Institute, to DNA computers.
Professor Assaf Gilad is Chief of the Division of Synthetic Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering at MSU and Affiliate of the Serling Institute.
Co-sponsors: College of Arts and Letters, James Madison College, RCAH, Asian Studies Center, Department of History and Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, College of Social Science.
Shelley Staples, University of Arizona
Friday, February 5, 2pm EST
Open to all; Sponsored by the TESOL program, the Second Language Studies program, and the College of Arts and Letters at Michigan State University
Description: In this talk, I will provide an overview of ongoing projects in the Corpus and TELL Lab at the University of Arizona, including an introduction to the two learner corpora we are developing, the Corpus and Repository of Writing (Crow), and Multilingual Corpus of Assignments: Writing and Speech (MACAWS). For both corpora, I will discuss both research and pedagogical applications that we are exploring. Both corpora are freely available to the public and access information will be provided for participants’ future exploration.
