Volume 44, Number 9

Faculty/Staff Activities

Thia Cooper (Religion) translated three articles from Portuguese to English for a special issue of the International Journal of Public Theology dedicated to Latin American Public Theologies.

Tom Huber (Physics) was recently awarded a patent titled "Vibroacoustic system for vibration testing" with Jim Greenleaf and Mostafa Fatemi of the Ultrasound Research Group at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. They collaborated to develop a technique where a pair of ultrasound transducers is focused on an object to selectively excite vibrations without any physical contact. Huber, and his students, have used this technique to study vibration of objects ranging in size from the face of a guitar, to atomic force microscope microcantilevers that are smaller than the diameter of a hair.

Seán Easton (Classics) contributed a chapter entitled "Envy and Fame in Lucan's Bellum Civile" to Brill's Companion to Lucan (Edited by Paolo Asso. E. J. Brill, 2011).

Helena Karlsson and Kjerstin Moody (Scandinavian Studies), attended the annual conference of ASTRA (American Swedish Teachers and Researchers Association) at the Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 13-15. The conference theme was the Swedish Welfare State.
