Inside Gustavus (April 28, 2011)

Volume 43, Number 30

Faculty/Staff Activities

Chris Johnson (Center for Servant Leadership) has been invited to serve as a facilitator with InCommons, a new initiative that connects citizens and organizations to develop and share tools, knowledge, and resources to tackle community problems and public challenges. InCommons is a joint endeavor of the Bush, Wilder, Blandin, and St. Paul Foundations; the University of Minnesota Center for Integrative Leadership; the Minnesota Council of Churches; Minnesota Public Radio; Twin Cities Public Television; and the Walker Art Center.

On March 30-April 2, Laurent Déchery (MLLC-French) attended the annual 20th/21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium in San Francisco, where he gave a paper on the animal theme in Fred Vargas's novel L'homme à l'envers (Inside Out Man). Laurent also published, in collaboration with Martine Sauret from Macalester College, an interview with the French writer René Frégni. It was published in the March issue of the French Review.

Kyle Chambers (psychology) co-authored two empirical articles with Kristine Onishi (McGill University) and Cynthia Fisher (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). "A vowel is a vowel: Generalizing newly-learned phonotactic constraints to new contexts" was published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition and "Representations for phonotactic learning in infancy" will be published in Language Learning and Development. Chambers also co-authored a service-learning project summary with Peter Olson (Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota) and April Rao (Creative Play Place), "Learning developmental psychology through museum exhibit design." The summary was presented to the Developmental Science Teaching Institute at the Biennial Meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Barbara Fister (library) presented a paper titled "Sisters in Crime at the Quarter Century: Advocacy, Community, and Change" at the Popular Culture Association National Conference in San Antonio.

Kathryn Christenson (advancement, ret.) wrote an article for Metro Lutheran about Prairie Oaks Institute, the retreat farm near Belle Plaine founded by Chris Johnson (CSL) and his wife, Kim.

Kevin Byrne (history) presented the keynote address at the College Board Breakfast, held at the Organization of American Historians annual meeting in Houston on March 20. The topic of his address was "Foreign Policy and Popular Culture in the Age of Reagan." He also delivered a paper titled "The Populist Roots of Progressive Reform" at the Teaching American History Spring Workshop, held at Minnesota State University, Mankato on April 8.

The Gustavus chapter of Phi Beta Kappa has unanimously elected William K. Freiert, professor emeritus of classics, as its first honorary member. The election recognizes Professor Freiert's distinguished career at Gustavus, his outstanding scholarship, and his profound commitment to liberal learning as teacher, mentor, and colleague. Election to honorary membership in the PBK, the nation's premier scholarly society, is reserved for those faculty who, having been granted the baccalaureate degree from colleges without PBK chapters, have made significant contributions to the liberal arts throughout their subsequent careers. Fewer than seven percent of all U.S. universities and colleges host a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. The Gustavus Eta of Minnesota chapter was formally installed on April 7, 1983. Professor Freiert will be inducted into the society at its annual induction ceremony on May 5.

Lisa Heldke (philosophy) was the keynote speaker at the Andrew Wolf Memorial Conference, "Eating Green: A Conversation about Food, Consumption and Sustainability," held at American University in Washington, D.C. Her talk was titled "Pleasure Once Removed: Eating, Suffering and Violence." The conference honored an American University graduate who was killed while working with The Otesha Project, a food and social justice organization that was cycling across Canada.
