Research Showcase: Our creative faculty May 3
In mid-April, UW-Parkside students were the research stars during an event in the state capitol. Friday, May 3, it's the university faculty's turn to step into the spotlight during a campus research showcase.
The UW-Parkside Committee on Research and Creative Activity (CRCA) hosts the event in the Oak Room of the Student Center beginning at 1:30 p.m. Our colleagues Jeff Alexander and Ross Astoria present the findings from their Faculty Summer Research Grants while George Wang serves as keynote speaker.
Dr. Alexander, associate professor of history, speaks on "Meth in Japan: Resident Non-Japanese and the Postwar Methamphetamine Panic;" Dr. Astoria, assistant professor of Political Science, speaks on "Climate Hawks and California Carbon Offsets." The university's 2012 Excellence in Research and Creative Activity Award recipient, Dr. Wang poses the question: "Teaching or research, which comes first?" during his keynote speech.
"Come and hear about the some of the outstanding research being undertaken by our faculty," said Matthew Makarios, assistant professor of Criminal Justice.The CRCA Research Showcase is free and open to everyone.
