Faculty/Staff Activities

Dr. Beatriz Torres (Communication Studies) is currently involved in community based participatory research with the School of Public Health (University of Minnesota) and SoLaHmo Partnership for Health & Wellness (West Side Clinic) in St Paul. The aim of this study is to evaluate the program effectiveness and acceptability of radio stories, a health communication intervention that addresses family eating behaviors and physical activity among immigrant Somali, Latino, and Hmong families with children ages 3-12 years in St Paul. Two grants totaling $114,000 from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and U-Care of Minnesota were secured to develop and implement this health intervention initiative.

Works by Priscilla Briggs (Art and Art History) are included in an exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. "Art in the Age of Globalization" is a series of eight installations, or "mini-exhibitions," each designed around a specific narrative or theme related to globalization. Priscilla's work is part of the installation titled "Outsourced" and can be found in the Linda and Lawrence Perlman Gallery (262). The exhibition runs Saturday, August 4, 2012 through Wednesday, July 31, 2013.

Peg O'Connor (Philosophy and GWS) published an article, “The Cartesian Mind in the Abused Body: Dissociation and the Mind Body Dualism,” in the book Dimensions of Pain.

Amanda Nienow (Chemistry) was recently awarded a three year, $139,500 National Science Foundation grant for her project "Systematic Analysis of the Photodegradation of Pesticides on Heterogeneous Surfaces: The Photolysis of Imidazolinone Herbicides on Two Midwest Crops". The funds will support the purchase of new equipment and lab materials as well as two student research positions for three summers.

Ryan Bergstrom (Geography) has achieved three publications since August 1, including "Perceptions of Sustainable Community Development in Jackson, Wyoming," in Papers of the Applied Geography Conference; "Perceptions of Neighborhood Park Quality: Associations with Physical Activity," in Annals of Behavioral Medicine; and "Environmental Justice and Physical Activity: Exploring the Distribution of Park Availability, Features, and Quality across Kansas City, Missouri," in Annals of Behavioral Medicine.

Leila Brammer (Communication Studies) received a fellowship from the Center for Engaged Democracy for work with a team identifying core competencies in civic engagement programs. The result of the work was "Core Competencies in Civic Engagement," a new Working Policy Paper from the Center for Engaged Democracy.

Martin Lang and Leila Brammer (Communication Studies) published an article, "Discourse and Democracy," in Diversity and Democracy, a publication of the Association of American Colleges and Universities. The article was an invited piece to discuss Public Discourse. In the same issue, Madison Pettit '12 published a companion piece, "Realizing our Potential as Active Citizens," which detailed student outcomes of Public Discourse.

Aaron Banks (Health and Exercise Science) was recently awarded the Lou Keller Award by the Minnesota Association for Physical Education, Health, Recreation and Dance. The Lou Keller Award is awarded to a college or university professor who has exhibited outstanding services and contributions to related fields in Health and Exercise Science.

The photo project "Traditional Hmong Medicine Project", created by Priscilla Briggs and Blong Lor '12 as part of a Presidential Faculty/Student Collaboration Grant, is included in the exhibit "What Cannot Be Cured Must Be Endured" at the Paul Robeson Gallery of Rutger's University in Newark, NJ. The exhibition runs September 4, 2012 through January 9, 2013.

Kathleen Keller (History) published an article titled "Political Surveillance and Colonial Urban Rule: 'Suspicious' Politics and Urban Space in Dakar, Senegal, 1918-1939," in the fall 2012 issue of French Historical Studies.

Junior physics major James Trevanthan '14 is the recipient of a $5,000 scholarship from the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA). MHTA offers the scholarships to Minnesota undergraduate students working toward their degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.
