Why an Academic Portfolio?

This is the academic portfolio of Diana Garvin.  I am Assistant Professor of Mediterranean Studies in the Department of Romance Languages at the University of Oregon.  This online collection provides an overview of my current work and traces its development over time.  To realize this ongoing project, I refine this website’s content as I develop my scholarship.

How is this Academic Portfolio Organized?

In this portfolio, you can find visual, textual, and filmic examples of my academic activities. Main pages explain why and how I approach scholarship. Subpages describe specific projects, and include links to sample materials.  To simplify navigation, structural divisions reflect traditional categories, such as “Research” and “Teaching.”  Page content blends the two: “Research” illustrates how I research teaching techniques; “Teaching” shows how I teach research projects. These activities reciprocally illuminate and fuse.  Images of my research materials and activities illustrate the text.
