Inside Gustavus (September 13, 2012)
Volume 45, Number 3
Mary R. McHugh (Classics) delivered a paper titled “The Art of Safe Speech: Schünzel’s Amphitruo” at Il Congresso Brasileiro de Retórica, convened at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Aug. 29.
Anna Versluis (Geography) will have a paper titled "Formal and Familial Material Aid Following the 2010 Earthquake Disaster in Haiti as Reported by Camp Dwellers," in Disasters Journal. Six weeks after the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Versluis interviewed displaced persons living in the tent camps of Port-au-Prince and her study results suggest that informal material aid from families played nearly as large a role as aid from relief agencies.
Twin Cities Public Television will air a MN Original profile on Kristen Lowe (Art and Art History) and musician Mason Jennings at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. During the show, Lowe will discuss her sheep shearing drawings and her current documentary project, Painting the Place Between.
