During this closing reception, USF faculty responded to Limning the Liminal by Jenifer Wofford, which ranged in subject matter, from Filipina nurses, WWII comfort women, to the aftermath of Pacific Rim earthquakes. Perspectives incorporate personal history and stories, scholarly analysis, and creative expression. Presenters included Professors Monisha Bajaj (International and Multicultural Education), Omar Miranda (English), Dean Rader (English), Evelyn Rodriguez (Sociology), and Ronald Sundstrom (Philosophy).
In this March faculty workshop, Huffington Post blogger and USF Professor Rick Ayers shared writing prompts and exercises to discuss scholarly interests in the format of a blog post. During the two-hour session, faculty received plenty of tips and had time to brainstorm, develop ideas, and begin writing. Participants worked in small groups to receive feedback and refine ideas.
