D’Youville is holding its inaugural Display to Archives event on Tuesday, March 26 from 5 – 8 PM in the Montante Family Library. The event, sponsored by President Lorrie Clemo, looks to recognize and promote the creative and scholarly works of D’Youville’s faculty and staff members.  

“I want to create real engagement in scholarship and give people across campus a sense of the size and participation of the faculty and staff in scholarship,” said Clemo. “We want a collaborative environment for faculty and staff to share experiences and develop plans for future scholarship.” 

Examples of works to be featured include a film by Lizzie Finnegan PhD, associate professor of English; books and chapters the faculty and staff have authored, journal articles they have published, newsletters they have created and more.  

New York Times best-selling author Andre Dubus III will be speaking at the event. Dubus will discuss the path that led him to become a writer, escaping a life of violence, and how he found his voice through the arts. Afterwards, he will perform a reading from one of his published novels.  

Some of Dubus’ works include Gone So Long (2018); House of Sand and Fog, a #1 New York Times bestseller; The Garden of Last Days (soon to be a major motion picture); and his memoir, Townie, a #4 New York Times bestseller and a New York Times Editors Choice. 

Finnegan’s film Nadja is inspired by the novel of the same title by Andre Breton which follows the story of a young woman struggling with questions about her absent mother, the mysteries surrounding her life with her father, and the secrets of her identity. 

Following the film, Craig Tyson PhD, assistant professor of Religious Studies will discuss the importance of nurturing the life of the mind to inspire continuous scholarly and creative achievement. 

Clemo says she is looking forward to this event being a communal affair. “We can celebrate the advancements in knowledge, teaching and creativity by our faculty and staff, recognize their contributions and increase awareness of the importance of their endeavors.” 

The event is free and open to the public. Those wishing to attend must RSVP using the Eventbrite page.
