About IWL SHINES: An Inclusive Research Spotlight Series
Academic research is traditionally conceived as being conducted exclusively, or nearly so, by tenure stream faculty; however, our contemporary academic landscape is changing in this regard. Important research is being conducted across university campuses, including Marquette’s, by a wide variety of scholars and experts--tenure-stream, yes, and also participating faculty of all ranks, graduate students, undergraduate students, and staff. The IWL SHINES series aims to shine a light on research being conducted across campus by members of all those groups.
This series, hosted through the Institute for Women’s Leadership at Marquette, pays special attention to research conducted by women and nonbinary people in all academic fields and non-academic units on campus as well as to all research conducted on gender-related issues. The series also has a special interest in profiling collaborative research projects, especially across categories (e.g., undergraduate students working with faculty, graduate students working with community partners, collaborations with faculty and students at other universities, etc.). Finally, the series understands “research” broadly to include public-facing scholarship, digital projects, and more. IWL SHINES believes in making research conducted in all areas and units at Marquette visible.
