Scholar-In-Residence

Call for 2021 Scholar-In-Residence

Apply before April 12, 2021

Each year, the village selects a faculty member to serve as the Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) in the village. The goal of the program is to foster meaningful dialogue between students and faculty outside the classroom. The SIR serves as a role model for village students as they develop as young scholars and researchers.  The Honors and Scholars Village is currently in the process of selecting our 2021-2022 Scholar in Residence position.  Stay tuned for more information!

Our most recent Scholar in Residence was Anne Auten, Assistant Director of the University Honors Program and a TH!NK (QEP) Faculty Fellow. Anne received her degrees in English from NC State University, with a concentration in gender and sexuality in nineteenth-century British literature. Over the last ten years, she has taught a range of literature and first-year writing courses at Elon University and NC State University. At NC State, she has also designed courses for the First Year Inquiry and Summer START programs, as well as a study abroad course in Paris. She enjoys working with all levels of undergraduate students and has also served as a faculty mentor to graduate students in the First-Year Writing Program. In addition to her passion for teaching, she regularly facilitates faculty development workshops and supports cohorts of  TH!NK faculty from all disciplinary backgrounds. Her research interests include both literary criticism and composition pedagogy, and she has presented her work at national and international conferences. In 2015, she was the recipient of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Outstanding Lecturer Award.
