Luther College presents Faculty Research Symposium, Nov. 2

A Luther College Faculty Research Symposium will start at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, in Valders Hall of Science Room 206, on the Luther campus.

Panels will continue throughout the day in Valders Room 206 and in the Franklin W. Olin Building Room 102. The event is open to the public, with no charge for admission.

The symposium and panels are intended for a broad audience and showcase the intellectual curiosity and cross-disciplinary dialogue that is at the heart of Luther's liberal arts education tradition.

Modeled after the successful Undergraduate Research Symposium held each spring, the Faculty Research Symposium seeks to provide a forum for Luther faculty to share and discuss their research, projects and passions with the broader Decorah community as well as with Luther students, faculty and staff. Each panel is composed of presentations from multiple disciplines, covering a range of ideas and research from worms to avalanches, and from Chinese cinema to Argentinean street performance.

The event concludes at 7:30 p.m. with "Shakespeare in Song and Sound," a Water Street Music Series performance, followed by panel discussion at the Congregational Church, 209 W. Broadway, Decorah.
