Scholarship Sewanee, the university’s annual celebration of student scholarship, research, and creativity, this year will be held Friday, April 28.
Scholarship Sewanee began in 1994 as “Scientific Sewanee,” a half-day poster session held at the end of the spring semester. In its early years, approximately 40 posters affiliated with the sciences were on display. Scholarship Sewanee 2017 will feature 75 posters and more than 40 oral presentations representing not only biology and chemistry, but also politics, economics, history, anthropology, visual arts, and more.
The McCrady Lecture, begun in 2013, this year will bring Linda Mayes, C’73, back to campus. Mayes is the Arnold Gesell Professor in the Yale Child Study Center and professor of epidemiology, of pediatrics and of psychology. Mayes’s research interests include early adversity; stress regulation; parental addiction; neural circuitry of social attachment and parental behavior; and developing reward systems. She will speak on “Lives Across Time: Developmental Perspectives on Stress, Adversity, & Child Mental Health” at 1 p.m. in Blackman Auditorium.
