The Office of the Provost, in partnership with the WVU Libraries, WVU Humanities Center and the WVU Press, will host the sixth annual Long-Form Scholarship Celebration of creative work produced by WVU faculty and staff. Submissions are due by Feb. 9.
To be eligible for submission, the work must have been published, released or produced between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2020. The deadline to complete the online submission form is Feb. 9.
The annual event is designed to celebrate and recognize the achievements of all faculty and staff members who have published a book, released a CD or produced a full-length work in another medium (e.g., art, theater, film, dance). The celebration provides the opportunity to highlight the commitment, hard work and achievements of those who are helping to propel the institution forward. Individuals included in the showcase exemplify the individual and collaborative efforts that keep WVU at the forefront of teaching, learning, insight and discovery.
Last year's celebration recognized a wide field of honorees across a significant number of disciplines and areas of expertise. The majority – 71% – of last year’s honorees were located outside of the arts and humanities, where most would perceive long-form scholarship to be predominately found. In addition to the arts and humanities, the celebration recognized members of the social and behavioral sciences, science, technology and engineering disciplines.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event shifted from an in-person reception and display to an online virtual showcase. The University will continue with the virtual platform as the primary celebration event again in 2021.
Interested participants should note that they will be asked to upload a high-resolution image of their work for the website when completing the submission form.
