External Funding for Philosophy Graduate Students
On February 8, 2008, Ms. Jessica Horowitz of Loyola's Office of Research Services gave a presentation to philosophy graduate students on external funding opportunities. Unfortunately, a record snowstorm prevented many students from attending and so we promised to use the new "smart classroom" technology in the Information Commons to make the video recording shown here. Although the video portion is poor (the camera couldn't handle the extreme contrast between the bright screen and the deep shadow at the speaker's desk), we were able later to reconstruct Jessica’s web navigation. During that portion, viewers might find it useful to open a second window in which they can traverse the web pages while they are explained in this video. Downloading time is about a minute.
The whole video is 84 minutes long and is divided in three roughly equal parts: (1) Jessica's overview of the grantsmanship game, (2) her explanation of how to use funding-oriented web sites, and (3) a follow-up discussion of how to write a good proposal. Please be patient with the fluttering and blotchy images: the important parts are the audio track and reconstructed web pages and these are fine.
Thanks to all who participated in this project, especially Jessica Horowitz and Philip Bauchan.
