Faculty/Staff Activities

Lois Peterson (art/art history) has been awarded a $3,000 Fellowship Grant from the McKnight Foundation. Funding is for the support of her studio located in St. Peter and the production of a new series of drawings scheduled for exhibitions in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Henry MacCarthy (theatre/dance) presented a paper titled "The Sound of Blackface: Racial (De)Constructions in Cuban Zarzuela" at the national conference of the American Society for Theatre Research in Seattle, Wash., on November 20.

Joel Carlin (biology, environmental studies) published a paper in BioScene titled "An investigative alternative to single-species dissection in the introductory biology laboratory." The article appeared in the December 2010 issue of the journal, and its content was made possible only through the extensive teaching collaborations among staff and faculty of the Gustavus Department of Biology.

Mark Bjelland (geography, environmental studies) has joined the author team for the McGraw-Hill textbook Introduction to Geography. While Mark contributed some material to the 12th edition, he took over responsibility for revisions to 5 of the 13 chapters in the 13th edition, which came out in November 2010.

Shawn Grygo (residential life) has been selected to serve on the program committee responsible for the recruitment and assembly of the educational sessions presented at the annual conference of the Upper Midwest Region - Association of College and University Housing Officers (UMR-ACUHO). She will begin her one-year commitment to the association in February.

Recent work by Kristen Lowe (art/art history) is included in the current group exhibition, Ultimate Landscape, at Gallery 13 in Minneapolis (8th and La Salle). The exhibition opened Dec. 9 and closes on Jan. 3, 2011. Some of her drawings were also juried into the artist viewing program at The Drawing Center in NYC, where they are scheduled to be on view from Dec. 13, 2010, through December of 2012.

Troy Seppelt (residential life) has been appointed to serve a three-year term on the Commission for Housing and Residence Life for ACPA-College Student Educators International. ACPA, headquartered at the National Center for Higher Education in Washington, D.C., is the leading comprehensive student affairs association, representing 8,500 members from 1,500 private and public institutions from the U.S. and around the world.

Chris Gilbert (political science) delivered the keynote address on "Faith, Politics, and the Liberal Arts" at the 2010 Sharon Walker Faculty Excellence Awards banquet at Morningside College on Dec. 9.

The Gustavus Peer Assistants were selected to present a workshop at the National Peer Education Conference held Nov. 4-7, in Indianapolis, Ind. Delivering an interactive simulation were Keisha Bates, Chaz Brown, David Buckley, Breanne Ceranske, Mary Dierkes, Brita Gilyard, Sam Grace, Blake Gust, Christopher Hall, Lauren Johnson, Peter Michaletz, Colleen Peterson, and Luke Youngvorst. Accompanying the Peer Assistants were Judy Douglas, director of alcohol/drug education, and Kari Eckheart, assistant director.

January Reading Group to discuss 'The Heart of Higher Education'... All faculty and staff and are invited to join a January reading/discussion group focusing on Parker Palmer and Arthur Zajonc's new book, The Heart of Higher Education: A Call To Renewal.

Books and refreshments will be provided. The book discusses integrative education, a model of liberal-arts learning that "engages students in the systematic exploration of the relationship between their studies of the 'objective' world and the purpose, meaning, limits, and aspirations of their lives." Faculty, please contact Cathy in the Kendall Center (cblaukat) to reserve a copy of the book; staff and administrators, please contact Amy in the CVR (apehrson).

Nilson (Clemson University). The third edition of the best-selling handbook offers faculty at all levels an essential toolbox of hundreds of practical teaching techniques, formats, classroom activities, and exercises, all of which can be implemented immediately. Discussions of participant-selected sections of the handbook will be facilitated by Jen Ackil (psychology) and Margaret Bloch Qazi (biology, Kendall Center) each Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in the Faculty-Staff Lounge. Books will be provided to the first ten individuals to register. To reserve a place and receive a handbook, please register with Cathy Blaukat (cblaukat) by Wednesday, Dec. 22.

Web Tips

Blogs Are Incredible... Blogging is the perfect way to keep fresh content on your website and engage your visitors. Your posts will be syndicated all over the Gustavus website (like calendar events), and we can pull them onto your homepage or wherever you want them. Blogs are very easy to use and ridiculously flexible—we are using them for so much these days. All of the news on the whole website is powered by blogs. The Philosophy Department is using blogs in an interesting way: they have a category set up for “Where are they now?” posts about alumni. We then pull random posts from this category onto the Philosophy website (in the Aux Box—the green area at the bottom—in this case).
