ScholarSip: Winter 2019
The impact of research goes beyond scholarship when it engages and empowers communities beyond academia.
This year, the Drexel Libraries will go behind the scenes of this Drexel-style of civic engagement during its 2018/2019 ScholarSip event series: Communicating Research to Inspire Citizen Engagement.
During each quarterly event, a distinguished Drexel professor will offer “food for thought” on their experiences and insights of communicating their interdisciplinary research with various populations. They will explore the implications of their work and the challenges they face to bring knowledge and understanding of their research to audiences beyond their disciplines.
This quarter, we are pleased to welcome guest speaker
Mimi Sheller, PhD
Director, Center for Mobilities Research and Policy
Professor of Sociology
Graduate Faculty Member for Communication, Culture & Media
All Drexel faculty and professional staff are invited to join us for what promise to be lively conversations with colleagues.
Now in its eighth year, ScholarSip is an annual event series hosted by the Drexel University Libraries that seeks to nurture Drexel’s intellectual life and cross-campus community through informal gatherings where faculty and professional staff exchange ideas sparked by greater awareness of interdisciplinary research. Each event includes social time to build acquaintances and a short “food for thought” presentation from a member of the Drexel community. ScholarSip provides an opportunity for members of the Drexel community to gather for conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term.
