Faculty at Augustana Campus have a long track record of actively fostering research by their students, and now they have new forum to showcase that work.
Two student projects will be showcased in Metamorphosis, the online academic journal of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges or COPLAC. (Augustana is the only non-U.S. member of this elite network of liberal arts post-secondary institutions.) One is a paper by Dylan Breitkreutz and Lane Olson supervised by Ian Blokland. The other is a video of Jonathan Nesbitt's rare piano and narration performance of "Peter and the Wolf" and is featured on the COPLAC homepage. According to the site: "The combination of musical and acting abilities displayed is rare in pianists. Only a handful of audio recordings exist where pianists attempt to perform both roles, and there are none available by undergraduate-level pianists." Jonathan was supervised by Milton Schlosser.
The Fall 2011 issue of Metamorphosis is not yet online, but should be here soon. Faculty committees at each member institution select undergraduate work for publication in the journal. Congratulations to Dylan, Lane and Jonathan; nice work.
