Works-In-Progress Colloquia

 

Description: 

Over the course of spring semester, The Mind’s Eye will host a Faculty Works-In-Progress Colloquium. Three awarded MCLA faculty members from across campus will have the opportunity to share their current research or creative projects with colleagues and benefit from questions and discussion. Each faculty speaker will share their work in a 30-40 minute lecture followed by Q&A during a luncheon catered by The Mind’s Eye. Lectures will be publicized, open to the public, and scheduled in either February, March, or April. Each awarded faculty speaker will receive a $500 honorarium.

To apply: 

In a 500-750 word abstract, describe the subject matter of your proposed lecture and place it within the broader context of your research or creative work. Proposals should explain how giving a public lecture will allow you to further develop your work and to what end (i.e. publication, exhibition, performance). Proposals will be reviewed by The Mind’s Eye advisory board and awardees will be announced in early February. 

Please send abstracts as PDFs to mindseye@mcla.edu by January 24th.
