The Legacy of Joanne Bubolz Eicher

| No Comments

A legacy refers to something handed down from one person to another. Through her teaching, advising, research, publications, and other academic activities, Eicher has had tremendous effect on students, colleagues, and the field of textiles and clothing, especially the socio-cultural significance of dress and textiles.

The purpose of this project is to determine the influence which she has had on her graduate students' intellectual and professional lives. Information will be obtained from her students through he design of an on-line interview and analysis of the responses. This is a qualitative method of inquiry.

In addition to satisfying the criteria for a UROP project, the outcomes of this project will be: 1) a proposal to the International textiles and Apparel Association for recognition of an outstanding undergraduate research paper (report), and 2) inclusion in a book-in-process titled "Through the Lens of a Scholar: An Intellectual Biography of Joanne Bubolz Eicher."
