The Bald Spot.  The Libe.  Scrunching.  Carleton is full of words that make sense to those who walk its grounds, but have you heard about one of our latest terms: VIZ?  Join Carleton Connects as Professor Susan Jaret McKinstry presents “What is VIZ? Visualizing the Liberal Arts (VIZ) at Carleton."  She will explore how this three year initiative has transformed teaching and learning across the college, and describe the interdisciplinary conference that Viz is hosting September 28-30, 2012 in the Weitz Center for Creativity. 

Susan Jaret McKinstry is the Helen F. Lewis Professor of English at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, where she studied the history of the novel, women writers, and literary theory. She is co-director of an interdisciplinary campus initiative on visual teaching and learning, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (2009-12).
