By Jan Oakley, Lakehead Education News:
Congratulations to Dr. Pauline Sameshima (Professor and Canada Research Chair in Arts Integrated Studies), who has won a 2018 Contribution to Research Award for her relevant research activities over the past three years.
The award recognizes Dr. Sameshima’s productivity in quantity and quality, her interdisciplinary range, and her scholarly outputs such as peer-reviewed journals and books while she creates, disseminates, and curates research through the arts. It also recognizes her mentorship of graduate students, her attainment of funding, and her research collaboration with scholars across disciplines.
“The arts offer loving ways to engage communities in collaborative research, and through the arts, we can share research with different communities. I am honoured to have received this award and am grateful to co-researchers, community partners, graduate students, and Lakehead for making my work possible,” she says.
One of Dr. Sameshima's endeavors includes the addition of two new research art galleries that opened at Lakehead this year. She curates the Galleries@LakeheadU spaces, which are made up of five different locations for displaying research done at the University.
