Oct. 21: Faculty explore the impact of ‘place’ on research
PULLMAN, Wash. – The ways that location has determined, shaped or affected research projects will be considered in short presentations by nine Washington State University faculty members 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, in the Fine Arts auditorium.
The places in which we live, work, commute and spend our leisure time affect us in myriad ways, said Ayad Rahmani, School of Design and Construction, and Kevin Haas, Department of Fine Arts, who together organized the event. Issues related to place reach across a full range of disciplines, including cultural studies, geographic and environmental issues, architecture and psychology, to name only a few, they said.
WSU researchers will conduct interdisciplinary presentations and discussions grouped in sections of two or three and opened by brief comments from graduate students. Each presentation will be limited to 6-10 minutes and 20 slides.
