Between March of 2012 and March of 2013, FSU faculty authors published 91 books and monographs. New scholarship in book form was published in 15 colleges and across 27 departments. Books were published by single authors, by groups of faculty colleagues, with graduate student contributions, and even with undergraduate student contributions. Some are textbooks, some present scholarly arguments, some serve as practical guides or handbooks to a discipline or skill, some are original novels or collections of art. All add to the body of knowledge and enrich our experiences as humans, providing insights, provoking questions, presenting a heretofore unimagined world view, and sharing data for further study and interrogation.
These faculty authors will be honored at FSU Authors Day on March 22, 4:30–6:30 p.m., at the Augustus B. Turnbull, III Florida State Conference Center. The public is invited to attend and lift a glass in celebration of scholarship for the public good.
At 5:30 p.m., Amanda Porterfield, David Ikard, Denise von Glahn, and Michael Uzendoski will be reading from their newest published work. It is our hope you will enjoy the snapshot of faculty scholarship offered through these new book publications. FSU is proud of the new knowledge created yearly by its world-class faculty.
