ALL FACULTY MEETING

Special Frieze Lectures for the 150th
"Ivory Tower or Front Porch?"
presented by Roald Tweet, Emeritus Professor of English
October 28, 2010
2:00 - 3:00 PM
Rock Island Library, Community Room
401 19th Street, Rock Island, Illinois
When the Rock Island Library observed its 125th anniversary in 1998, Augustana College professors contributed to the celebration with the first Frieze lectures. The lecture series was named after the library's frieze, the decorative band around the top of the Main Library building that is inscribed with the names of literary figures. Thirteen years later, it's Augustana's sesquicentennial year and the 2010 Frieze Lecture Series is part of the celebration. The annual partnership between the library and the college brings professors into the library for college-level lectures without tests or grades.
Roald Tweet will speak on the relationship between the college and the City of Rock Island. Dr. Tweet is the author of numerous publications on Mississippi River and local history, and has a radio program, "Rock Island Lines," on WVIK FM90.3. He became a member of the Augustana English Department in 1960, and served as chair from 1967-1984. The lecture is followed by coffee and conversation.

The Faculty Research Forum (FRF) is a freindly, interdisciplinary working group of researchers and writers that gathers approximately once a month to workshop works-in-progress (e.g., book chapters, grant proposals, conference papers, journal articles, book proposals, and other forms of scholarly production). Volunteers submit their work to the group, and then gather over drinks and snacks to ask questions and provide constructive critiques--all in an effort to improve our research and writing. Please contact Margaret Morse (Art History) or Meg Gillette (English) for more information.

Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR)
Posters on the Hill Application Announcement
Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2011 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 15th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event will help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.
CUR is calling for students of member institutions to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR's disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply. Should your research be inter-disciplinary, please select the division that most closely describes your research.
Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using an on-line submission form. Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract. A document listing the information required for submission can be found by visiting: http://www.cur.org/pdf/poh%20application%20information.pdf
For more information, and the link to submit an application, please visit: http://www.cur.org/pohcall.html Please note that CUR membership is required to submit an application. Either the student's home institution must have an institutional membership, or the faculty mentor or student must have an individual membership.
Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by November 15, 2010.
Please encourage your students to submit. This is a highly competitive program, which makes for a very exciting experience for the students and their faculty advisors alike.
