'Fabled' on Display in Student Union Gallery
Art professors Heather Freeman and Jeff Murphy created the works in the exhibit “Fabled: Flederhund and Other Stories” on display in the Student Union Art Gallery through Friday, Aug. 7.
Some of the images were for their book “Flederhund.” Written for children, “Flederhund” centers on a young boy's encounters with both imaginary creatures and real places as he searches for his missing dog in Central Europe.
Freeman, an associate professor of digital media, teaches digital print, animation, video, installation and drawing. She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art and German studies from Oberlin College and an M.F.A. in Studio Art from Rutgers University. Murphy, who received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Ohio University and an M.F.A. from the University of Florida, is an associate professor of art. His classes include digital imaging, interactive design, photography, video and animation.
Literacy Faculty Ranked Among Nation's Best
The College of Education’s literacy professors are among the most prolific scholars in the country in their field, according to a recent study.
Published in the journal Reading Psychology, the article looked at the productivity of literacy faculty nationwide from 2006 to 2012. The rankings were based on the number of times professors appeared in nine prominent research journals, adjusted for the size of the literacy faculty at the particular college.
UNC Charlotte came in at 21st in the country, besting the likes of the University of Tennessee and the University of South Carolina and ranking just behind Vanderbilt and the University of Florida.
