On Thursday, Feb. 28, there will be a reception for Boise State professors who have had work published. The ceremony will be held in the McCain Room on the second floor of the Albertson’s Library from 3:30 to 5 pm.
The program will acknowledge several hundred faculty members who have published books, articles or creative pieces between Sept. 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012. It also includes other creative works such as videos, art exhibits and recordings.
“We try to be inclusive, recognizing that each discipline defines scholarship in a different way,” said Michelle Armstrong, chair of the Albertsons Library University Author Recognition Committee.
A collection of work written and created by faculty is currently on display in the first floor of Albertson’s Library. A complete list of the works being recognized is also available on the library website; however, the list will not be considered complete until after the event as last minute submissions are not unusual.
The event is not about celebrating one person’s big achievement or singling out a few greatly accomplished individuals; it is a celebration of all the work and research being done at Boise State.
“We never single out an individual author,” Armstrong said, “Instead we make a point of honoring every author, regardless of rank or discipline.”
The Boise State Author Recognition Reception is an annual event. This will be the eighth year the event has been held. Students and community members are invited to attend.
