from Jesse James, Josef Steiff

Welcome to the 2021 Virtual Faculty Showcase! The intention of this event is to recognize, feature, and share the scholarly and creative endeavor of our faculty that has been supported by Sabbatical Leave Awards and Faculty Development Grants.


This year our display includes documents, images, clips, and descriptions across a range of forms and genres including literary studies, animation, audio art, American-Sign Language studies, dance, and narrative and documentary filmmaking.


The projects are all engaging, innovative, and aesthetic; they represent leading-edge work in the faculty members’ respective fields. I invite you to take a moment for yourself and check out each and every one.


In the spirit of relationship and connection, I also encourage you to join us on Tuesday, November 9, from 3 pm – 4 pm on Zoom for our 2021 Virtual Faculty Showcase Launch. Come celebrate with us and speak with the faculty whose work is featured here. We all know how important it is to get an audience’s perspective of and response to our work and art!
