Inside Gustavus (March 17, 2011)

Volume 43, Number 25

Faculty/Staff Activities

Yuki Sakuragi (MLLC-Japanese studies) has published the first installment of a new one-year series, “Experiencing Intercultural Communication through Film” in the April issue of The English Teacher’s Magazine. The English Teacher’s Magazine (Eigo Kyooiku in Japanese) is the oldest magazine for English teachers in Japan (at all levels, from elementary school through university), with a monthly circulation of 50,000 copies.

Julie Bartley (geology) co-authored a paper with Linda Kah, titled "Protracted Oxygenation of the Proterozoic Biosphere," which has appeared online and will appear in the April print issue of International Geology Review.

March was a busy month for Beatriz Torres (comm. studies). She was keynote speaker for a Lambda Pi Eta National Honor Society in Communication Studies chapter event at Nebraska Wesleyan University on March 11, addressing more than 100 students, faculty, and administrators on the topic "Gesundheit! Bless you! Salud! Promoting health across cultures: Facilitating intercultural dialogue in health care." She also presented a special session for communication students at Nebraska Wesleyan on March 11 about the practical side of research, titled "Embracing research: the art of solving problems & bringing positive change." Torres also learned that one of her manuscripts has been accepted for publication as a chapter in a handbook: Torres, M. B. (2011) "Health promotion from the grass-roots: Piloting a radio soap opera for Latinos in the U.S.," in R. Obregon & S. Waisbord (eds.), Handbook of global health communication, development and social change, in press. Finally, she has received an $18,500 grant from KMSU Radio to fund the production of the second and third season of an entertainment education radio soap opera, "Tests of destiny: Stories of love, pain and healing." This Spanish radio soap opera was developed to reach the widely dispersed Latino population of southern Minnesota. The purpose of this soap opera is to communicate health knowledge through real stories and experts, to create audience identification with the stories, and trigger interpersonal communication on and about the episodes. The project occurs with the collaboration of La Mano Inc. (a non-profit organization), several Hispanic community leaders and KMSU (Minnesota State University's campus radio station, which reaches approximately 500 Hispanics).

Stewart Flory (classics, emeritus) has published a review in Bryn Mawr Classical Review of Adam Schwartz's Reinstating the Hoplite: arms, armour and phalanx fighting in Archaic and Classical Greece, Stuttgart: Franz Steiner Verlag, 2009. This review has amused some colleagues. Curious? The URL is bmcr.brynmawr.edu/2011/2011-02-23.html.

María Isabel Kalbermatten (MLLC-Spanish) had an article, "Verbal Irony as a Prototypical Category in Spanish: A Discoursive Analysis," published in Spain by Editorial Axac as part of the book Lingüística e Hispanismo, edited by Joaquín Sueiro Justel et al. (http://www.editorialaxac.com/catalogo/thema-2.html).

Kris Kracht, director of forensics (comm. studies), has been awarded the Larry Schnoor Distinquished Service Award from the American Forensics Association District IV.

Leila Brammer (comm. studies) has been invited by the Kettering Foundation to participate in an ongoing discussion about deliberation in higher education.

Jill Locke (political science) presented a paper, "Rousseau, The Misfit's Hero," to the Political Theory Colloquium at the University of Minnesota on March 11 (http://www.polisci.umn.edu/centers/theory/schedule.html).

 

Student Achievements

Sophomore Jasmine Porter (St. Louis Park, Minn.) is one of 25 students nationwide to be named a 2011 Institute for International Public Policy (IIPP) Fellow. Reflecting the IIPP's goal of increasing the representation of minorities in international service, the IIPP Fellowships support summer policy institutes following both the sophomore and junior years, junior-year study abroad for a semester or year, a summer language institute at the Middlebury College Language Schools, a post-baccalaureate internship, and a master's degree program in international affairs (funds matched by the grad school).

Sophomores Ellen Liebe (Grand Rapids, Minn.), Ben Miller (Coon Rapids, Minn.), Laura Grossmann (Minnetonka, Minn.), Erik Velgersdyk (Bloomington, Minn.), and Jane Sparren (Grand Rapids, Minn.) represented Gustavus at the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA) national conference Feb. 19-23 in St. Louis, Mo. While at the conference they participated in educational sessions for new event ideas, late-night program issues, and leadership development.

News & Announcements

We Are Looking for Photos!... We are looking for photographs that have captured the people and the place that is Gustavus Adolphus College. The Gustie Gallery is a project of the Gustavus Sesquicentennial Celebration! We encourage all people to share their photographs of Gustavus, past and present! If you have any you would like to share, please join our
Flickr gallery at http://www.flickr.com/groups/gustiegallery and start uploading Gustavus memories today!

'Inside Gustavus' Publication Reminder... Inside Gustavus will not be published on Thursday, March 31, during Spring Break. Announcements of events or deadlines occurring between Friday, March 25, and Thursday, April 7, should be submitted by the end of the day on Tuesday, March 22, to be included in the March 24 posting of the newsletter. The next publication date after March 24 is Thursday, April 7.

Nominate Amazing Gusties... In 2011-12, Gustavus will celebrate its 150th academic year. The Board of Trustees has established an award in honor of this Sesquicentennial anniversary to recognize individuals who have made a significant difference in the life of the College. The award, called “The Sesquicentennial Award,” will acknowledge and pay tribute to living alumni, parents, friends, and retired faculty and staff who:

  • through actions in their personal or professional lives, have advanced the status of Gustavus as a premier liberal arts college;
  • set a new precedent in the ways they have supported and advanced the mission of the College as an institution dedicated to preparing students “for fulfilling lives of leadership and service in society”; and/or
  • have brought particular dignity or honor to the College.

Please submit nominations online at gustavus.edu/150.

Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training... The insurer that covers sexual misconduct liability risks for Gustavus has seen a recent increase in preventable claims on the campuses it insures. This increase in preventable claims is rapidly escalating insurance premiums. Fortunately, the company has offered to stabilize deductibles and premiums for Gustavus if the College institutes sexual misconduct prevention training for all staff and faculty. Without this training, the Gustavus insurance deductible would double from $25,000 to $50,000 per claim and the College would be charged a 10 percent surcharge. Please join with other community members on March 28 or 29 at 9 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. in the Campus Center's Heritage Room to learn how you can help prevent costly sexual misconduct claims on our campus.

Women's Self-Defense Classes Scheduled... Korean ho sin sul and other self-defense techniques for women are demonstrated and taught in Alumni Hall on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:20 p.m. Classes are scheduled for March 22, April 5 and 12, and May 3 and 10. Women are invited to attend some or all of the classes; no sign-up is necessary. The classes, which are sponsored by the Dean of Students Office and the Womyn’s Awareness Center, are led by Karen Larson (anthropology, interdisciplinary studies), a third-degree black belt, and student assistants. Come in comfortable clothes, ready to move.

Guild of St. Lucia Seeks Nominations... The Guild of St. Lucia was established in 1958 to honor women who have achieved academic success, displayed leadership qualities, and provided service to the College and others. Fifteen juniors are elected in the spring of each year to be a part of the following year’s Guild. Please send names of nominations, with a brief explanation of your nomination, to Barb Larson Taylor at btaylor@gustavus.edu by March 25 (before spring break).

Peace Studies Awards Information Night... Please encourage students to apply for the annual Peace Studies Awards. An information night for students will be held on Monday, March 21, 5:30-6:15 p.m. Students will learn about applying for the awards and hear from past award recipients Kareen Getfield, Annabel Landaverde, and Joelle Paulson. A taco bar dinner will be served. Applications may also be obtained from Mimi Gerstbauer (political science, peace studies); they are due April 15.
