Sustainability Coordinator Laura Fieselman presented at the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference October 10-12. She made a presentation on Engaging in Reuse: Design & Implementation of a Student Swap Shop, which focused on working with Professor of Human Environmental Sciences Martha Burpitt’s class to create The Daisy Trade ReUse Shop, and co-presented a panel discussion on collaborating with faculty.
“I also helped facilitate the pre-conference curriculum convocation, which was an opportunity that arose from having our new Environmental Sustainability major/minor,” Fieselman said.
Associate Professor of Art Shannon Johnstone has earned more recognition for her sabbatical project “Breeding Ignorance Continues.” She was selected to win an Honorable Mention in the Lens Culture International Exposure Awards 2010. Only 25 honorable mention awards were presented. The Lens Culture editor’s note said “Your work captured the attention of every single juror. This is especially exciting because the International Exposure Awards received more than 6,400 submissions from photographers in 47 countries.”
Johnstone’s work was also selected for the Top 50 Critical Mass award from Photolucida. She was previously selected for this international award in 2009. Her work went through two rounds of jurying, and the top 50 photographers were selected from more than 200 gallery directors, curators, photographers, and editors from across the U.S.
