Inside Gustavus (February 10, 2011)
Volume 43, Number 20
On Jan. 21-23, Darrell Jodock (religion), Grady St. Dennis (church relations), and Chris Johnson (CVR) represented Gustavus at the 2011 gathering of the Western Mission Network. This ELCA gathering brings together representatives of the colleges, seminaries, and lifelong learning projects in the western part of the U.S. (from Minnesota to Washington and south to New Mexico and California). Since its beginning in 1998, this gathering has fostered a number of new initiatives and cooperative projects. A good deal of attention has been given to generational differences that influence learning, the role and uses of technology, and the importance of a deepened sense of vocation. Stirred by the presenters, those who attend are unusually effective at generating stimulating ideas and networking together to put them into practice.
Kyle Momsen (HES) spoke to the Waseca Rotary about curling ("Who knew sweeping could be so fun") in anticipation of the third outdoor bonspiel during the Waseca Sleigh and Cutter Festival. For more, visit
Joel Carlin (biology, environmental studies) published a section in the online textbook Nature Education Knowledge titled "Mutations are the raw materials of evolution." This online project by the publishers of Nature is meant to provide undergraduate students worldwide with free, peer-reviewed English language articles in ecology and evolution.

Among the sponsors were the Southwestern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA and the New Ulm Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church. The service was held this year at Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Peter.
Jill Locke (political science) gave a talk, "Freeing the Secret: Feminism and the Politics of Confession," as part of the Feminisms for the 21st Century Hoffman Lecture Series at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. She also presented a paper, "Rousseau, The Misfit's Hero," at the Rockefeller College Political Theory Workshop, SUNY-Albany. Both events were on Friday, Jan. 28.
Lisa Heldke (philosophy) lectured at the University of Oregon at the invitation of the Oregon Humanities Program, the Comparative Literature Program, and the Philosophy Department, as part of the yearlong series "What Sustains Us."
