Inside Gustavus (October 8, 2009)

Volume 42, Number 6

Faculty/Staff Activities

Lisa Heldke (philosophy) has had two papers published this fall: “Three Social Paradigms for Access: Charity, Rights and Coresponsibility,” in the volume titled Critical Food Issues: Problems and State-of-the-Art Solutions; and “Cultivating Cosmic Patriotism by Cultivating Cosmos: Urban Gardening and the Creation of Community,” in Culture/Nature: Art and Philosophy in the Context of Urban Development.

Don Scheese (English) presented a paper titled "The Chacoan Outliers: A Still-Inhabited Wilderness" at the annual meeting of the Western Literature Association held in Spearfish, S.D., Oct. 1-4.

Doug Huff (philosophy) will have a staged reading of his new play, The National Endowment, at the Arts Center of Saint Peter on Friday, Oct.16, and Saturday, Oct. 17, at 7:00 p.m. each night. The National Endowment is a comedy/farce about a small liberal arts college in the Midwest. The cast includes many people from the Gustavus and St. Peter community, but Doug assures us, on advice from his attorney, that any resemblance to actual events or people, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

On Oct. 3, Darrell Jodock (religion) delivered a keynote address on "What Should We Expect When We Read the Bible?" at the Southeast Minnesota Synod Book of Faith event, held in Owatonna, Minn. He also led two workshops on "The Power of Story: The Witness of Biblical Narrative."

Denis Crnković (Russian) has had a book review of David M. Goldfrank's Nil Sorsky: The Authentic Writings (Cistercian Studies Series, 221. Cistercian Publications: Kalamazoo, Michigan, 2008) published in the October issue of The Medieval Review.

The site of this concert is the venue where this astounding talent first performed jazz before a live audience, Jussi Björling Recital Hall. For Saturday's performance, Elling is joined by long-time collaborator and musical partner Laurence Hobgood on piano. Bassist Michael Olatuja and drummer Ulysses Owens complete the combo. With Hobgood, Elling has been pushing the boundaries of vocal jazz since they co-produced their first recording, Close Your Eyes, in 1995. In their most recent recording, Dedicated to You, Elling sings the music of John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman. In addition to eight Grammy nominations, Elling has been honored with top honors in the Down Beat and Jazz Time readers' polls, four Jazz Journalists Association selections as Best Male Vocalist, and the Prix Billie Holiday from the Academe du Jazz in Paris. Billboard Magazine has selected him as the premiere jazz vocalist for the past ten years. Tickets for his Gustavus concert are available at gustavustickets.com and at the door.

His current inquiry in art education centers on Minnesota Native populations and is inspired by 15 years spent teaching in K-12 schools with mostly American Indian students.

All from the campus community are welcome to come and listen.
