Thank you to Dr. Jen Erdman (Public History) and Dr. Ryan Schurtz (Psychology) who shared their research at the inaugural HaSS Diverse Perspectives Forum. This new series creates a space for HaSS faculty members (full-time and part-time) to discuss their research, scholarship, and creative work. Topics are open and work in progress is particularly welcome.
For our inaugural session, Dr. Erdman talked about teaching critical thinking through the topic of conspiracy theories in her INDSC350 class and Dr. Schurtz shared his experiences writing op-ed pieces for the Baltimore Sun (including useful tips for colleagues interested in exploring this form of publication). Our March Forum will feature speakers from Human Services and Theatre & Media Performance.
