Seventh Scholarsip Event Features Research Of Rob D’Ovidio, PhD
The Libraries celebrated its seventh ScholarSip event on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, bringing over 50 people together to celebrate the end of the fall term. Rob D’Ovidio, PhD, provided an informational food for thought with his presentation titled The Rise of the Machine: the Evolution of the Computer and Crime. He stimulated discussion about identity theft, the alarming increase in possession of images of child pornography, and the conditions facilitated by information devices and communications by which crimes have become easier to commit and more difficult to guard against.
Held at the end of the academic term, Scholarship seeks to deepen Drexel’s connection to scholarship through recognizing campus intellectual life. Faculty and professional staff from across the campus are invited to attend and connect across disciplines.
In total, the Libraries has hosted seven ScholarShip events sharing the research of faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Public Health, College of Engineering, and School of Law.
The spring ScholarSip event will be held on Monday, March 17th and will feature the research of Jon Spanier, PhD. Save the date! For more information about ScholarSip, or to suggest a potential topic of interest, please contact Jenny James Lee, marketing & events associate, at 215.571.4095.
