Faculty/Staff Activities

Dr. Justin Knoepfel, Dr. Karrin Meffert-Nelson, and Paul Hill, members of the Minnesota Opera Orchestra, each had a hand in the newly awarded Pulitzer Prize for 2012, "Silent Night: Opera in Two Acts," by composer Kevin Puts. Commissioned and premiered by the Minnesota Opera in Minneapolis on November 12, 2011, it is a stirring opera that recounts the true story of a spontaneous cease-fire among Scottish, French and Germans during World War I. Libretto by Mark Campbell.

Lynnea Myers (Nursing) presented two sessions at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Annual Conference March 27-31, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas. The presentations were titled "Ready, Set, Screen- Developmental and Mental Health Screening for Young Children" and "What's Quality Got to Do With It."

Steve Wright (Music) was a judge for the annual Iowa Jazz Championships in Des Moines on April 10. During the day, he and two others listened to and critiqued 15 bands in the 2A division - one of four divisions. As an evening judge (with four others), he judged the IJC finals, which featured the top two bands in each division. In total, there were 60 jazz ensembles competing for four top ratings by the end of the day. Wright's father - Maurice Wright - was considered a pioneer of jazz education in Iowa, having formed a school big band in Burlington, Iowa in the 1950s.

In February of this year, Dwight Stoll (Chemistry) was appointed to the editorial board of LCGC Magazine, the primary trade publication for separation science. More details are available online.

A book chapter titled "Principles of Online Comprehensive Multidimensional Liquid Chromatography," by Dwight Stoll (Chemistry) and co-authors Peter Carr, Joe Davis, and Sarah Rutan, and Dwight R. Stoll, appeared in the 50th volume of Advances in Chromatography, released in January of 2012.

Elizabeth Baer (English) has published her fourth book, titled The Golem Redux: From Prague to Post-Holocaust Fiction. It was released by Wayne State University Press on April 16. The book traces the history of the Jewish legend of the golem and its appropriations in German texts and film as well as in post-Holocaust Jewish-American fiction, comics, graphic narratives, and television.

Baer served as the external reviewer for the English Department at St. John's/St. Ben's this spring term. She will serve on the accreditation team for Hebrew Theological Institute in Chicago in May.

Student Achievements

Fourteen Gustavus students participated in the annual Arrowhead Model United Nations, a regional Model UN with several hundred participants from universities and colleges in the upper midwest. This year, the conference was hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato and Gustavus represented Belgium, Guatemala, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea). The Gustavus DPRK team was nominated for the best delegation award, and senior Sam Burnton won awards for his work on the environmental committee and for his policy speech as a delegate from the DPRK. Students interested in joining the Gustavus Model UN team for our fall and spring conferences should contact Mimi Gerstbauer.

Full details about the Criterion 4 core components can be found on the HLC’s website.
