Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium (LVEHC) Upcoming Events

The Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium (LVEHC) is collaborating with the Lehigh Valley Book Fest and the Moravian College Writers’ Conference to bring Daisy Hernandez to the Lehigh Valley for a keynote lecture and to host a writing masterclass. Daisy Hernandez is the author of the memoir A Cup of Water Under My Bed and coeditor of the anthology Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism.

There is one week left to apply for the Masterclass (deadline 02/21), which offers a $100 stipend to participants

On March 26, from 7PM-9PM, Daisy Hernandez will present a keynote lecture, “Writing Toward Community: a talk on memoir, immigration and queer latinidad” at Moravian College’s Bahnson Center.

On March 27th, 9AM-11AM, Daisy will lead “Where You Stand,” an application-only Writing Masterclass open to writers of all levels and genres. Participants will read and discuss short creative nonfiction texts focused on how writers navigate their experiences with race and gender and will use these readings to generate new work that considers how we reckon with the social positions we inhabit in our communities such as race, gender, age or ableism and the fluidity of these positions. $100 stipends are available for successful applicants who complete the workshop. Applications are open now until February 21, 2020.

A Community of Reflection: Information Literacy Research and Scholarship

Wednesday, May 13, 2020
9AM – 3PM
Muhlenberg College

This event will bring together faculty, librarians, and other educators invested in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) related to information literacy. 

“SoTL differs from scholarly and reflective teaching in that it not only involves questioning one’s teaching or a teaching strategy, but also formally gathering and exploring evidence, researching the literature, refining and testing practices, and finally going public.” (Bishop-Clark and Dietz-Uhler, 2012)  

This event will provide space for sharing the inquiry, research, and evaluation that takes place in pursuit of the development of student information literacy skills and the understanding of information literacy instruction.
