Faculty/Staff Activities

Eric Dugdale (classics) had a paper titled “Good Grief: Learning Empathy through Ancient Drama,” published in Institutio, the proceedings of an international conference in Venice, edited by Licia Landi, Bob Lister and Per Rasmussen, Pensa Editore. He also co-edited "Greek Athletics and the Olympics," published by Cambridge University Press (December 2011).

On Dec. 8, Dugdale gave an invited lecture at the National Law School of India, India's top-ranking law school. The lecture was titled "Greek Drama as Political Drama: Responses to Violence in Ancient and Modern Retellings of the Orestes Myth." The lecture was hosted by the Law School's Centre for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy (CSSEIP) and moderated by Prof. Avinash Govindjee (Head of Public Law, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa). Dugdale offered a critique of the shortcomings of retributive justice and procedural justice and articulated the need for restorative justice.

News & Announcements

Event Location Change...Due to a larger than expected audience, the remaining five lectures in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 Speaker Series have been moved from the Melva Lind Interpretive Center to Alumni Hall. All of the lectures will begin at 4 p.m. and all will be live streamed and archived for future viewing purposes.

GAC Joins UMW HERC...The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that Gustavus has joined the Upper Midwest Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (UMW HERC) -- a partnership of more than 50 colleges and universities in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. This collaboration is designed to enhance dual-career and diversity hiring and is a premier example of the higher education community working together to advance the region.

The UMW HERC region consists of five sub-regions: Lake Superior, Lakes and Valley, Minneapolis/St. Paul Metropolitan Area, Mississippi River Valley, and Southern Prairie. Job seekers may focus their searches on colleges in a particular sub-region.

A vital feature of the UMW HERC is its regional Web site. The site can be used to find faculty and staff job postings at all member institutions. The search engine is free and available to anyone seeking employment in higher education. Dual-academic couples can receive automatic email notifications when positions in their fields open at any of the colleges in their specified sub-region. If one member of the couple is considering or already has an offer, the spouse/partner will be able to monitor opportunities for him/herself. The couple also has access to diversity, cultural, and business resources in their selected sub-region.

Donate Vacation Hours...Employees who would like to donate vacation hours for a Gustavus employee who will be on an approved FMLA leave and will run out of paid time benefits should complete and sign a request for transfer of vacation hours available at the Office of Human Resources (x7304).

Documentary Screening...In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies Program is sponsoring a screening of Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 17 in Confer Room 127. Rustin was Dr. King's most trusted advisor and the person who introduced King to the principles of Gandhian nonviolence. Rustin's story is largely unknown because he was openly gay.
