Many of us need time and encouragement to pursue ongoing research and writing, to focus on a new scholarly project, or to hone our research and scholarship skills. Some of us want to network with others or to simply learn more about what our JMU colleagues are doing. Held on Thursday, January 3 and Friday, January 4 this year, the 4th annual January Symposium meets needs in various phases of your scholarly journey through programs that will help you envision your scholarly process, design your study, analyze existing results, and/or produce and publish your scholarly work.
The 2013 January Symposium features sessions on data management, scholarship agendas, understanding statistics, analyzing data, designing surveys, the institutional review board, and more. A writing lockdown or an institutional review board lockdown will provide you with space and motivation to dive into your work! Join a Voices of Scholarship lunch talk – Chris Andt, The Future of Digital Humanities: Scholarship or the Latest Fad? (1/3, 12p.m. – 1p.m.) and/or Gary Freeburg and George Johnson, An Artist’s Journey to the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes (1/4, 12p.m. – 1p.m.).
