2018–2019 Scholars and Artists in Residence
Applications were particularly competitive this year. The four winners were selected for the intellectual significance of their research and the social relevance and public impact of their work on university and area communities.
Lisa Hanasono | Media & Communication
Despite its prevalence, pregnancy loss remains taboo in the United States.
For her project, Shattering the Silence on Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss, Dr. Lisa K. Hanasono, an Associate Professor from Bowling Green State University’s School of Media and Communication, will highlight the findings from two research projects to reveal how culture, gender, media, and interpersonal communication factors work in concert to stigmatize and silence discussions about pregnancy loss—and what we can do collectively to shatter that silence.
Lecture scheduled for Thursday, October 25th, 2018, 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., 207 Bowen-Thompson Student Union
Lara Lengel | Media & Communication
Dr. Lara Martin Lengel's project, Community Organizations’ Role in Combating Sex Trafficking and Sex Tourism, addresses faith-based organizations’ (FBOs) role in combating sex trafficking of women and children in Costa Rica. It analyzes how the decriminalization of sex work in Costa Rica affects FBOs’ advocacy and support efforts. The proiect builds on Dr. Lengel’s 25-year research program on transnational feminism and critical intercultural communication studies, which has been published in, among other journals, Feminist Media Studies, Gender & History, International Journal of Women’s Studies, Journal of Communication Inquiry, Journal of International and Intercultural Communication, Text and Performance Quarterly, and Studies in Symbolic Interaction.
Lecture scheduled for Thursday, November 15th, 2018, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Wood County District Public Library
Melissa K. Miller | Political Science
Dr. Miller’s research explores the unique challenges faced by mothers of young children on the campaign trail using the 2018 election as a case study. A record number of women ran for elective office, and a record number won. Some of the most interesting campaigns were run by mothers of young children who emphasized their role as mothers on the campaign trail in ways never seen before. Through on-the-ground campaign observation, in-depth interviews, and analysis of campaign advertising, Moms on the Run: Breakthroughs and Barriers in the 2018 Election exposes the breakthroughs made by “moms” on the campaign trail and the barriers they nevertheless encountered.
Dr. Melissa Miller is an Associate Professor of Political Science and Affiliated Faculty in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Bowling Green State University. Her work appears in American Politics Research, Politics & Gender, Political Research Quarterly, Public Opinion Quarterly, and Mothers and Others: The Role of Parenthood in Politics, among others. A recognized expert on campaigns and elections, Dr. Miller has been recognized at BGSU as both a Master Teacher and with the Faculty Senate's Community Involvement Award for her extensive media appearances aimed at distilling critical issues for a broad public audience.
Lecture scheduled for Wednesday, April 24th, 2019, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m., 207 Bowen-Thompson Student Union
Arne Spohr | Musical Arts
Arne Spohr (PhD, Hochschule für Musik Köln, Germany) is Associate Professor of Musicology at Bowling Green State University, where he teaches courses in music history and directs the BGSU Early Music Ensemble. His research has focused on music in Britain, Germany and Scandinavia between 1550 and 1750, particularly on issues of cultural exchange, institutional history and court culture. In his most recent book project, situated in the field of Early Modern European Black Studies, he investigates the social and legal position of Black trumpeters and drummers in early modern Germany.
Far greater numbers of Black Africans lived in Early Modern Europe than it is generally thought today. As a consequence of trade, Christian missions, colonialism, and, particularly, the slave economy, numerous people from sub-Saharan Africa, enslaved or free, lived in Europe since the mid-fifteenth century. This significant presence of Afro-Europeans has, to date, been mostly ignored by historians. Not surprisingly, the rich contributions of Black people to European culture also remain largely unexplored. In his project, entitled Forgotten Voices: Rediscovering Europe's Black Musical Past, Dr. Arne Spohr will shed light on lived experiences of Black European composers and performers between 1450 and 1800.
Concert-Lecture scheduled for Thursday, April 18th, 2019, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., Wood County District Public Library

Nicole Jackson | History
Nicole Jackson is an Associate Professor of History at Bowling Green State University.
Dr. Jackson's project analyzes Black British women's literature from the 1950s onward as part of an "alternative canon" of British literature in which Black women attempt to represent their marginalization in the late-/post-imperial United Kingdom while also offering a way to conceptualize British multiculturalism as a space to remake contemporary British culture.
Dr. Jackson will give a public lecture on her project in Fall 2019
Starr Keyes | Counseling and Special Education
Starr Keyes is an Associate Professor of Counseling and Special Education at Bowling Green State University.
Dr. Keyes's project explores the ways in which issues of poverty, disability, minority status, limited English proficiency, low parental reading levels, under-resourced schools, and teacher quality contribute to the perpetuation of the schoool-to-prison pipeline, particularly regarding disciplinary exclusion in Ohio schools and what teachers and society at large can do to combat these issues.
Dr. Keyes will give a public lecture on her project in Fall 2019
Albert Dzur | Political Science
Albert Dzur is a Professor of Political Science at Bowling Green State University.
Dr. Dzur's project, entitled Salus Populi Suprema Lex: Addressing Deep Challenges of Collaborative Governance in the Opioid Crisis, examines the collaborative governance approach to the opioid crisis that encourages networks of professionals to work together along with engaged citizens to address social issues, yet often contribute to the very problems they seek to address. In this project, Dr. Dzur asks how the negative aspects of professional-citizen relations are being mediated and addressed by practitioner groups in Ohio.
Dr. Dzur will give a public lecture on his project in Spring 2020
Lori Liggett | Media and Communication
Lori Liggett is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University.
Dr. Liggett's project, entitled The "New Woman" and the 19th Amendment in Popular Culture: Constructing, Containing, and Controlling the Modern American Woman on the Road to Suffrage, marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote by examining the suffrage movement through the lens of evolving depictions of the New Woman in poular culture, including how the discursive agendas of magazines changed over time to reflect national attitudes toward war and patriotism.
Dr. Liggett will give a public lecture on her project in Spring 2020
