Faculty Luncheon Series Fall 2012

The Future of Scholarly Publishing

This fall, Florida State University's annual Faculty Luncheon Series will examine the state of scholarly publishing and the perception that the academic publishing industry is on the verge of major evolution. The scholarly publishing cycle, including the production and dissemination of research, functions in tension with traditional journal publishing, tenure and promotion requirements, and increasing calls for federally funded research to be openly accessible to the public. Faculty at many colleges and universities are debating the worth of new forms of digital scholarship and how that scholarship is disseminated in light of the availability of new technologies. In addition, increased costs associated with library journal subscriptions are causing some universities, including Harvard, to call the current system "financially untenable."

"The current debate abounding throughout academe is driven by strong opinions, some misinformation and legitimate misgivings about new digital methods of publication," said Micah Vandegrift, Florida State's scholarly communications librarian. "Florida State University has joined this conversation by adopting a resolution supporting the principle of open access to scholarly literature, and amending its tenure and promotion guidelines to allow digitally published scholarship to be counted, subject to the same criteria as print journals." The 2012 Fall Faculty Luncheon Series, "The Future of Scholarly Publishing," will define key players and points in the evolution of the system, and present the challenges that the Florida State University community will face in working to stay at the forefront of academic productivity. 

Tuesday, Sept. 11
Associate Dean of Special Collections and Archives Katie McCormick will discuss "The University Library and its Role in Digital Scholarship." Dean of University Libraries Julia Zimmerman will introduce Gore and McCormick.

Tuesday, Oct. 9
English Assistant Professor Paul Fyfe will discuss "The Scholarly Monograph Unbound." English Professor and Chair Eric Walker will introduce Fyfe.

Tuesday, Nov. 6
Art Assistant Professor Owen Mundy will discuss "New Definitions of Research." Vice President for Faculty Development and Advancement Sally McRorie will introduce Mundy.

Tuesday, Dec. 11
Physics Professor and Chair Mark Riley will discuss "The Evolving World of Academic Publishing, the Need for Change and Its Future Impact." Riley's introduction will be made by a colleague who has yet to be determined.


Faculty Luncheon Series Spring 2012

Why We Still Teach

The topic for this spring's series, "Why We Still Teach," will be discussed by four distinguished and nationally recognized faculty members from Florida State. Amid years of university budget cuts, constant concerns about a faculty "brain drain," and changing ideas about the purpose of higher education, the speakers will talk about why they still love working with students and sharing their knowledge and experiences in the fields they have made their life's work.

Tuesday, January 17
The first Faculty Luncheon Series event of the semester will be feature Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Garnett S. Stokes. Stokes joined Florida State in August. She previously served as dean of the University of Georgia's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and is widely recognized for her work in industrial and organizational psychology.

The concluding luncheon of the spring semester will provide him an opportunity to shed light on this continuing topic in academia.


Faculty Luncheon Series Fall 2011

Unity in Diversity -- An Academic Community Reflects on the Three Cultures: The Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences

The theme of the upcoming fall series was inspired by a 1959 lecture by scholar C.P. Snow that explored the cultural divide between the natural sciences and the humanities, as well as a 2009 book by Harvard psychologist Jerome Kagan, "The Three Cultures: Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and the Humanities in the 21st Century." 

"This semester's theme is designed to promote a greater unity among the sciences and the humanities at Florida State University," said Robert Ross, the organizer and moderator of the Faculty Luncheon Series. "We want to demonstrate how each academic culture may inform, and be informed by, the other two cultures in order to create a more coherent university that will be better able to engage the world's pressing problems and contribute to their solutions."

For more information about this series, please see:

Tuesday, September 13
Jay Clayton, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor in the Department of English at Vanderbilt University. Clayton will address "How the Humanities May Inform, And Be Informed By, The Social and Natural Sciences." Professor Clayton has previously received funding from the National Institutes of Health to research how the humanities may be involved in formation of national science policy.

Tuesday, October 4
Elaine Howard Ecklund, assistant professor of sociology at Rice University, will discuss "How the Social Sciences May Inform, And Be Informed By, The Humanities and Natural Sciences." Ecklund's focus of study involves how individuals develop cognitive schema — ways of interpreting the world that are at odds with the institutions that constrain them. She will also deliver a lecture to the FSU Department of Sociology on Oct. 3 on "Women in Science." Ecklund's book "Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think," which is also the title of a lecture to the Department of Religion on Oct. 4, was published by Oxford University Press in May 2010.

Tuesday, November 8
Neal Lane, senior fellow in science and technology policy at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, the Malcolm Gillis University Professor, and a faculty member in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, all at Rice University, will discuss "How the Natural Sciences May Inform, And Be Informed By, The Humanities and Social Sciences." Lane served as an assistant to President Bill Clinton for science and technology and as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy from August 1998 to January 2001. He also served as the director of the National Science Foundation and as a member (ex officio) of the National Science Board from October 1993 to August 1998.

Tuesday, December 6
The Faculty Luncheon series will host a panel discussion on the three culture theme. The panel will involve esteemed faculty members from across Florida State University, including Assistant Professor Joseph Gabriel of the Department of Medical Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Medicine; Professor Pamela Keel of the Department of Psychology; Associate Professor Meegan Kennedy of the Department of English; and Professor Thomas Miller of the Department of Biological Science.
