Faculty and Students to Present Latest Scholarship Feb. 10

Feb. 4, 1999

Baylor University faculty and students will present their latest research and scholarly activity Feb. 10 during Scholarship Day. The annual event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., will feature 100 presentations from a variety of disciplines, such as music, sociology, religion, health sciences, art and political science. Presentations, each lasting approximately 45 minutes each, will take place in rooms in the Bill Daniel Student Center and in the Tidwell Bible Building.

"Scholarship Day is a means to communicate with the entire campus the scope of scholarship that is being done at Baylor," said Dr. Larry Lyon, dean of the Graduate School and professor of sociology. "Scholarship can be defined as more than research. It also can encompass musical performances, poetry readings and art exhibits."

In addition to faculty members, six undergraduate and 16 graduate students will deliver presentations. Scholarship Day topics include "20th Century Southern Baptist Approaches to Understanding the Millennium," "Note Taking and Memory," "Evaluating Gifted and Talented Programs," "Marxist Ideology in the Films of James Cameron," "How Good (or Bad) is Waco's Quality of Life?" "The Politics of Religion and the Persian Gulf War" and many others.
