With the title, Seminar Series number 1, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities organized the College’s first seminar of the year on 3 January 2020 in Maraki Campus’s Aluminum Hall.
The two presenters of the day included Professor Alexander Raju with the title Daunting Ambiguities in Literature and Mr. Muluken Abera who spoke on his paper entitled Cooperating Learning: Impact on Individual Writing Performance. The two faculty members who work under the English Language and Literature department shared their thoughts and experiences on the topics at hand and audience members then had the opportunity to ask questions and pose comments.
The idea of the seminar series is to create an environment where scholars could present their work and gain feedback from other scholars ultimately developing the capacity of staff members. With that being said the audience who were in attendance for the seminar series engaged completely in the presentations and raised relevant questions and shared their overall thoughts which helped the presenters in more ways than one.
Dr. Agegnehu Tesfa, the Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities shared with the people in attendance that this is the first Seminar but it sure looks like it will have much success in the coming weeks. He expressed that intellectual atmosphere such as seminars will only contribute to the development of the College and specifically the academic staff.
In the coming weeks the College’s Postgraduate Coordinating Office will host the second Seminar Series and will include other departments from the College.
