If you are a Northeastern faculty or staff member who has completed a monograph, a work of juried art, or the like within the last year that reflects significant scholarly effort, we invite you to share your work with our RISE: 2021 Virtual Expo audience.
To receive recognition for your work during the conference, please follow the steps below.
Faculty Works Information
Guidelines for Faculty Works
“Faculty Works” are works by Northeastern authors that are the product of significant scholarly effort. For this year’s RISE, we are seeking to share works that were first published or otherwise disseminated between January and December 2020. Examples of the types of work we wish to highlight include:
- Monographs and other books
- Peer-reviewed journal articles
- Juried creative works
- Edited volumes and chapters in edited volumes
- Digital materials published by independent publishers
If you are a Northeastern faculty or staff member who produced such a work in 2020, we invite you to submit an abstract of your work (and any supplemental materials, if desired) through our RISE:2021 Virtual Expo platform by March 8. If you produced multiple scholarly works in 2020, we would ask that you put forward one work that you consider to be representative of your broader intellectual agenda. Your abstract and any accompanying materials will be shared in a virtual gallery throughout the conference.
Please note that faculty and staff projects are not eligible for RISE Awards.
RISE will utilize a unified software platform for a seamless experience from abstract submission to event hosting to judge engagement.
Our RISE:2021 Virtual Expo platform is now open. Please click here to create your personal profile in the system, should you wish to participate in the Faculty Works process.
Once you have created a personal profile, please go ahead to the abstract submission portal of the software to provide bibliographic information and an abstract for the work you wish to share. You can submit said abstract by visiting the the RISE platform site, clicking on the “Presenter” tab in the top right-hand corner, then selecting “Faculty”. Once “Faculty” has been selected, you can then go in and add your abstract.
Your abstract, which should be no longer than 250 words, should be written for a non-specialist audience rather than an audience of experts in your field.
The deadline for abstracts is March 8.
Submit Any Supplemental Materials
Faculty and staff members have the option to share supplemental materials regarding their works with the RISE audience. Such supplemental materials might include links to publications available online, scans of book covers, and videos. (Videos should be no more than 5 minutes in length and accessible to a non-specialist audience.) You will receive an e-mail inviting you to submit supplemental materials related to your project once we start collecting and approving abstracts in early March.
Please join us on April 15!
