A showcase of research & creativity

By Elisabeth Schnebele

Sharing the discoveries, research and creative pursuits of faculty members is daily work on any university campus. Each fall in the University of Washington Bothell & Cascadia College Campus Library, however, the library staff also creates a special display to showcase some of the most recent work by faculty — and some staff and students.

A library display of staff and faculty publications and posters

“It’s great to feature the research and creative projects that our faculty and staff have worked on, and I hope that it gives people some pride,” said Hannah Mendro, materials processing lead, of the annual and eclectic display of publications.

“I also hope that it brings recognition to the faculty work and shows that there are many different works being done by different people. Plus,” she added, “it is so cool to see a scientific article right next to a poem — it shows the breadth of research taking place in our community.” 

Normally, the display includes only work published from the year prior. Because the library was closed during remote operations for about 18 months, this year’s display also includes books, chapbooks, journal articles, art catalogs and other works published in both 2019 and 2020.

Many of the pieces, in fact, delve into what life is like during a pandemic. Dr. Ching-In Chen, assistant professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, wrote the poem “Dear O,” for example, which explores the impact of isolation and how to find connection in a time of struggle. “It also explores difficulty with lineage and inheritance, especially around gender expectations,” Chen said.

Dr. Dan Berger, associate professor in the School of IAS, also wrote about COVID-19, taking a social justice approach researching the problems pandemics pose for incarcerated people and prisons. “While Washington state has ostensibly abolished the death penalty, its approach to incarceration now puts thousands of people at risk — in and out of prison — of a most painful and preventable death due to coronavirus,” Berger wrote.

The Faculty & Staff Publications Display at the Campus Library features works from UW Bothell and Cascadia College

The works on display also cover topics from “dumpling-making” and “love letters to daughters” to “plague stories” and “pushing against perfectionism.” Most of the works in the case are available both in the library and online.

All are invited to come to the library and discover for themselves the work of these faculty — plus students and staff — from UW Bothell and Cascadia College. Any works available in the library collection will also be linked on the UW Bothell/CC Faculty and Staff Publications webpage, where you can also find an archive of works displayed in previous years.
