Faculty/Staff Activities

Jill Locke (political science) presented two papers, "Politicizing Authenticity" and "Romantic Dreams and Nightmares: Rousseau and Les Salonnières," at the Western Political Science Association annual meeting in San Francisco, April 1-3.

Lisa Heldke (philosophy) was one of two principal speakers at the annual Public Issues Forum of the Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium on March 27, on the topic "The Future of Food." The title of her talk was "Down-Home Global Cooking: Why Cosmopolitanism versus Localism Is a False Dichotomy, and How Our Food Can Show Us the Way to a Third Option."

Student Achievements

On April 2-5, the Gustavus forensics team earned a top-10 national ranking with its best-ever performance at the American Forensics Association’s National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET), held at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The team earned 197 points to finish in 10th place. Bradley University claimed first in the team sweepstakes with 443 points. Seventeen Gustavus students participated at the AFA-NIET, advancing in an impressive eleven events to quarterfinals, six events to semifinals, and two events to finals. Sophomore Chloe Radcliffe placed 15th in Individual Sweepstakes, aided by her second-place finish in Communication Analysis and fifth-place finish in Drama Interpretation, to become the first Gustavus student to be a national finalist in any AFA-NIET event and the first to place in the Individual Sweepstakes. 2010 marks the fourth straight year that the Gustavus forensics team has earned a top-20 national ranking at the AFA-NIET. The team earned 20th-place finishes in 2007 and 2008 and an 18th-place finish in 2009.

Community Invited to Groundbreaking... On Friday, April 16, at 3:30 p.m., Gustavus Adolphus College will hold a ceremonial groundbreaking at the future site of a new state-of-the-art 125,000-square-foot academic building to be built just west of Christ Chapel. Construction will begin on the building this spring, and it is expected that it will be ready to serve Gustavus students and faculty by September 2011. The new academic building, which will house the Departments of Communication Studies, Economics and Management, History, Psychology, and Sociology and Anthropology, is one component of a $44 million commitment made by the College’s Board of Trustees in January to move forward with three major building projects. Also included in the plan is the development of a west mall extending from Christ Chapel and a major renovation of the Anderson Social Science Building. The College intends to have the new academic building achieve at least Gold LEED Certification. The LEED green building certification program encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.

Association of Congregations Gathers on Campus... On Saturday, April 17, the 23rd annual Gustavus Adolphus College Association of Congregations convention will be held on campus.

Terry Morehouse will receive the Association’s Covenant Award, given annually to an individual who has made distinctive contributions toward strengthening the partnership between Gustavus and member congregations. The afternoon will be devoted to discussion designed to rejuvenate congregations. The schedule for the day is as follows:

Festival of Dionysus V Slated... The Festival of Dionysus, a biennial theatrical festival in which Gustavus students perform scenes from ancient drama, is scheduled on Saturday, May 8, at 2 p.m. in Linnaeus Arboretum. This is the fifth iteration of the festival and promises to be the biggest by far, since this year the Department of Classics is combining it with a reunion of alumni, friends, and classicists to honor Will Freiert (classics) on the occasion of his retirement. The Festival of Dionysus is a striking and visually compelling example of the creativity of Gustavus students. Students direct, choreograph, and perform in their own adaptations of ancient drama. Original musical compositions, performances in masks, choral dances in Greek . . . all have been part of this extravaganza in the past.

Off-Campus Events of Interest

New Exhibition at Arts Center of Saint Peter... Opening at the Arts Center of Saint Peter (315 S.

Recital Benefits Global Mission Institute... Helen and Paul Baumgartner (both music, emeriti) will play a piano duet recital at Scandian Grove Lutheran Church at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 11. The recital, which features music by the Mendelssohns—Felix and his sister Fanny—will be a benefit for the Global Mission Institute of Luther Seminary.

Spiritual Practices Study Group Meets... The Spiritual Practices Study Group will continue to meet after Lent on third Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Pioneer Parlor of First Lutheran Church. This group, initiated by Patricia N. Freiert (classics, emerita) and Liz Power Hawkinson, is studying practices in various traditions that have nurtured and enriched spiritual life and opened doorways to the divine and a deeper faith throughout history. The study group's next book, The Sonic Thread by Cynthia Snodgrass, tells of her spiritual journey through music. The author, an Episcopalian priest who uses music from Eastern and Western traditions for healing in her hospice ministry, recounts the stories of her own spiritual journey as a musician and Christian and the results of her studies of music in major spiritual traditions throughout history. More information about her work is available at her website. The plan is to read the first two chapters prior to the next meeting, on April 15. Copies are available from the website, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble and we hope to have a copy available in the church library. Please read the first two chapters and join the group on April 15!
