“Spotlight on Scholarship” is a new series sponsored by the University Libraries. Every Fall and Spring semester, the Libraries will shine a spotlight on the scholarly output of one academic department through a reception and month-long exhibit.

The Communication and Theatre Arts Department is the focus of our first “Spotlight on Scholarship.” Traditional research and creative works produced by faculty for the past 10 years are featured in an exhibit in the Learning Commons from March 15 through April 30. Selected books, journal articles, posters, and flyers are on display. See photos of the Exhibit.

Faculty will discuss some of their recent work at a reception on Friday, March 30, from 3-5pm in the Learning Commons Conference Room. For more information, contact Karen Vaughan kvaughan@odu.edu
