Five UIS faculty members to present their research during public presentations on campus

Five faculty members from the University of Illinois Springfield will present their research as part of the 2018-2019 Faculty Scholarship Series. All presentations are free and open to the public.

Adriana Crocker, UIS professor of political science; Lucia Vazquez, UIS associate professor of biology; and Hinda Seif, UIS associate professor of sociology, will discuss “Research Opportunities at the University of Colima, Mexico” on Nov. 7 from 6 to 7 p.m. in Public Affairs Center, Conference Room H.

On Nov. 14, Kristi Barnwell, UIS associate professor of history, will present “The United Arab Emirates and Arab History: State formation in the 20th century” from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Public Affairs Center, Conference Room H.

Bits and Bytes of the History of Presidential Campaign Advertising in the Internet Age” from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Public Affairs Center, Conference Room F.

The Faculty Scholarship Series started in September with a lecture on “Gap Analysis: An Innovative Look at Gateway Courses and Student Retention,” by educational leadership faculty members Karen Swan, Bill Bloemer, Scott Day and Leonard Bogle.

The Faculty Scholarship Series was started last year to highlight research at UIS and to share these results with the larger Springfield community.
