Last week the DiMenna-Nyselius Library, in partnership with the Center for Academic Excellence, hosted the annual Faculty Publishing Party to honor faculty members for their scholarship, grants, and creative achievements over the past year. The event drew 70 alumni, faculty, staff, and donors to celebrate the publications and presentations produced by Fairfield faculty, spanning multiple disciplines and areas of interest.

“The evening was a wonderful pause from our hectic schedules to gather together to celebrate the scholarly accomplishments of our faculty,” said Jackie Kremer, head of Library Academic Partnerships and Assessment. “It was a pleasure to see the amazing amount of work produced by our faculty and librarians during the past year.”

200 works , including books, articles, and presentations were recognized during the event. To mark the occasion, the staff of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library offered guests literary-themed cocktails including The Adventure of Huckleberry Gin, Picture of Dorian Grey Goose, and The Canterbury Ales. Prior to the reception, faculty gathered to participate in publishing workshops where they discussed topics including publishing for a dissertation, how to get started writing a book,  establishing a writing routine, where to publish, and how to apply for grants.

“The publishing workshops that preceded the celebration allowed faculty and staff to learn from each other as they shared the wisdom they’ve gained while navigating the publishing process over the years,” shared Emily Smith, PhD, associate professor of English Education. “It was a great opportunity for co-mentoring and celebrating each other’s learnings and accomplishments.”

Following the reception, Lisa Lucas, director of the National Book Foundation, gave a talk on “The Need for Literature in Politically Challenging Times.”
