Scholarship Sewanee is a celebration of student research at Sewanee held near the end of each Easter semester. Scholarship Sewanee presents an opportunity for students to showcase their work through presentations in all fields of study, in traditional poster, oral or non-traditional presentation formats. This year's events kick off on Thursday, April 24, with a performance of Theatre Sewanee's On the Verge followed by a special "talk back" event with the student production leaders. This event offers a chance to learn about the creative work these students and their mentors did to make the production happen. 

Friday, April 25, brings talks from Biology, Chemistry, Politics, Economics, History, International and Global Studies (and more) as well as a Poster Session involving presentations from a variety of disciplines.  

Professor Paul Bartrop of Florida Gulf Coast University is this year's McCrady lecturer. He will deliver a keynote address entitled "Goodness during the Holocaust: Acts of Helping amidst the Horror" at 1 p.m. in Blackman Auditorium. Bartrop is recognized as one of the world's leading scholars of the Holocaust and genocide. He is professor of History and director of the Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies at Florida Gulf Coast University.

The celebration of collaborative student-faculty work concludes with the spring concert by the Sewanee Symphony and Chorale as they present "Razzle Dazzle: The Sounds of Broadway."

1-2:30 p.m.:  Keynote address by Dr. Paul Bartrop of Florida Gulf Coast University
