ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: WARP Fall 2009 Exhibition (NEW POSTING):

Please join the WARP Fall 2009 class in presenting their work to the public. The work varies in media and concept and reflects the smart and talented students beginning their studies in the School of Art and Art History. This exhibition is taking place on Thursday, December 10, 7:00-9:30pm at WARPhaus Gallery, 818 NW 1st Ave.

The WARP students’ work is very eclectic, dealing with a multitude of topics and investigations such as, social dynamics, our damaged ecosystem, disease, famine, and indictments of equal access to our educational system, beauty in nature and repair of our ecosystem, stereotyping and examination of conventions of representation, formal and political observations in urban spaces, music and movement, poetry in everyday life, anxiety, fear, manipulation and power of the media, interactive and experiential explorations in pop culture, personal, political and fictitious narratives...there is just about something for everyone.

Highlights include: an inflatable Michael Jackson Jacket with interactive performance for identification of the new pop music idol, a near life sized elephant painting, furniture design and installations made of recycled materials, a portable and interactive moving graffiti wall, an infomercial for the SensiStation, re-sensitization chair, a memorial to unlikely heroes, a chance to retreat back into a human-sized egg, a glimpse into an unusual artist’s studio practice, an inside-out-house, Oh...and please do watch out for large scale snakes...

Performances will be scheduled throughout the evening.

Harvard Forest offers an exciting program for up to 30 undergraduate students from institutions across the country to collaborate with scientists conducting ecological research for 12 weeks during the summer of 2010.

Each student will participate in an on‑going study with senior researchers from Harvard University, Marine Biological Lab-Ecosystems Center, University of New Hampshire, University of Massachusetts and other collaborators. Responsibilities generally include field and laboratory studies, data analysis and scientific writing. In addition, students attend weekly seminars given by nationally known scientists about their research and workshops on ethics and career and graduate school planning. At the end of the summer, students will develop their research results and present their findings at a student research symposium.

Students are paid a stipend of $5520 for the 12‑week session which runs from May 24 through August 13. Excellent on-site housing and a full meal plan are included as part of the program.
Assistance with travel costs to and from Harvard Forest is also provided.

We seek a diverse group of students from a variety of undergraduate programs across the country. Students should have a demonstrated interest in ecology but are not required to have previous field/lab experience and there is no minimum GPA required. We accept students from all class years, and are particularly interested in recruiting students from community colleges, small teaching schools as well as larger research institutions.
