f1.4: The Changing Face of Contemporary Photography

This year’s LIFT series of community artist exhibits feature the images of KW area photographers Darin White, Stefan Rose and Stephen Orlando.

The LIFT micro-galleries are located directly across from the elevators on floors 4, 5 and 6 of Laurier’s Waterloo campus Library.

The series brings community artists from the grassroots up into the stacks.

  • 11:00 AM - 12:20 PM How (not) to Present and How (not) to Publish

    This workshop will discuss procedures for presenting at conferences and for submitting work for publication, including discussion of the differences between refereed and non-refereed journals, and how to submit a book  proposal.

    Drawing on her 35 years of experience as a academic editor, manuscript reviewer, and author, Dr. Howard-Hassmann will present some examples of common errors made by junior (and sometimes not so junior) scholars. The workshop will be most useful for graduate students in the humanities and social scientists, but students and postdocs from other disciplines will find the session useful and are welcome to attend as well.

    Laurier has partnered with universities all over the world to offer exchange programs to our students. Currently, we have exchange agreements with more than 63 universities in 24 countries around the world. Studying abroad allows you to broaden your perspective of the world and gain and increased sense of self and independence while building skills transferable to future employment. If you participate in an international exchange, you continue to pay tuition to Laurier and receive Laurier credits but study at a university outside of Canada.

    The first step in the application process for the Student Exchange Program is attending an Information Session. After attending, you'll gain access to the application documents you need to apply.

    Please note: Students must have completed 10 Laurier credits before participating in the Student Exchange Program and have a minimum GPA of 7.

    Please see our website for Information Session location information.

    Title: Building Industrial Support for Interdisciplinary Research

    Abstract: Developing relationships between universities and industry is not static, and does require a comprehensive, long-term view which creates benefit for both parties. A key challenge is to identify those challenges which address "pain-points" for industry and also help industry look to the future, while at the same time bringing benefit back to the university. There becomes an ebb and flo of interaction with the industry and academia, hopefully leading to a fulfilling and lasting collaboration. University - Industry partnerships are not new, but there is a growing need for these interactions to become more strategic and thoughtful because of the growth of the knowledge-based economy. The objective of this session is to identify key objectives and opportunities to develop such relationships, starting with initiating projects leading to long-term credibility and traction.

  • Faculty of Science
  • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM Composed, film screening
    Through the lens of professional classical musicians, Composed explores the many ways we experience and can address performance anxiety. Faced with the judgment of peers, audience, conductors, and worst of all themselves, these musicians spend years trying to understand and overcome the physical and mental manifestations of their anxiety. Through their stories, we learn valuable lessons learned over a lifetime of professional performance; and we find that we are not alone in our quest to overcome the fear of failure and embarrassment. For anyone wanting to feel strength over fear and compassion over judgment, or simply seeking a closer look at anxiety and what makes us tick, Composed opens the door to a world of high stakes, high pressure, and peak performing.
