Scholarship and Creative Arts Day

The Etownian April 24, 2013 0

For students, faculty, staff and visitors, Scholarship and Creative Arts Day (SCAD) is a time to present, view and engage in creative work, research projects and personal academic achievements within a public forum. SCAD 2013 featured approximately 200 academic presentations, including dissertations on research projects, readings of creative pieces and demonstrations of academic concepts. This year, the SCAD roster also included a presentation by Josh Fox, writer and director of the Academy-Award nominated “Gasland.” The groundbreaking documentary explores the recent rise in natural gas demand and the social, economical and environmental impacts that hydraulic fracturing—or “fracking”—has upon the modern world. Fox was chosen as a keynote speaker for this year’s Open Book program, which featured Seamus McGraw’s “End of Country,” a book which addresses similar issues.
