Inside Gustavus (February 14, 2013)

Volume 45, Number 17

Faculty/Staff Activities

In late December, Kristen Lowe (Art and Art History) gave a talk at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum as part of a community snowshoe walk and conversation through the Japanese Garden with curator, Mary Bigelow and painter, Holly Swift. In January, Lowe spoke at the Minnesota Museum of American Art in St Paul. The subject of her lecture was on contemporary developments in documentary film and how these changes have influenced her own documentary, Painting the Place Between.

Mark Bjelland's (Geography) book, Human Geography: Landscapes of Human Activities, was released by McGraw-Hill in January 2013. Dr. Bjelland paired with Dr. Daniel Montello of the University of California-Santa Barbara in assuming the authorship of this established undergraduate text. Gustavus' Big Hill Farm appears in the chapter on agriculture in a special feature on eating locally on college campuses.

Doug Huff (Philosophy) was notified that his play, A Far Shore, was named runner-up for the Woodward International Playwriting Prize. Doug will be hosted by the University of New Hampshire for a staged reading of his play during the 2013-14 academic year. Doug also received notice that he was elected by the faculty of St. Hugh's College, Oxford University, as an Associate Member of the College for three years.

Barbara Zust (Nursing) along with two former students (Lydia Busiahn and Kelly Williamson Janisch) published
"Nurse's Experiences in Caring for Incarcerated Patients in a Perinatal Unit" in the January 2013 edition of Issues of Mental Health Nursing.

Betsy Byers (Art and Art History) was one of the featured artists during an open studio event at the Walker Art Center on Saturday, Feb. 2 in conjunction with the exhibition "Painter Painter." An interview with Byers is currently on the Walker Art Center Blog. Byers also has new work in a group exhibition titled "Interaction" at the Burnet Gallery in Minneapolis. The exhibition runs through Feb. 24.

The College and Lutheran Church Archives (Michelle Twait and Jeff Jenson) received a $1000 grant from the Swedish Council of America to digitize Scandinavian-American sound recordings. During the initial phase of this project, they focused on our recordings of spoken and musical humor. They plan to add popular and sacred music in the future. This collection was selected because it represents a time period when nearly a million Swedes immigrated to the United States, bringing their cultural traditions with them. Their goal for the digitization of these materials is to preserve and provide greater and more enhanced access to the collection of early 20th century Scandinavian-American sound recordings. These recordings will be an important resource for students on campus taking courses in music, history, and Scandinavian Studies. The collection can be accessed online at http://archives.gac.edu/ (scroll down to the link for Scandinavian-American Recordings).

Lois Peterson (Art and Art History) is an invited artist for the inaugural exhibition of the new Waseca Art Center. The exhibition is in part sponsored by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council and opens on Feb. 7 with a free public reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by an artist panel discussion in the new Schultz Auditorium at 7 p.m. The panel features artists/professors Jill Ewald from St. Olaf, Brian Frink from Minnesota State, Mankato and Peterson. The topic of the exhibition and panel is "Seeing ourselves, the role of the Self Portrait". Peterson has also been awarded a $500 artist grant from the Capelli Foundation in Canton, Conn. The Capelli Foundation supports the production of art and work of women artists living and working with cancer.

Chuck Niederriter (Physics) was invited to present a poster, “Integrating Sustainability Across the Science Curriculum of Gustavus Adolphus College,” at a recent conference for principal investigators of CCLI/TUES grants in Washington, DC. The conference was sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Jessie Petricka (Physics) and Chuck Niederriter (Physics) attended the winter meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers in New Orleans, La.. Jessie presented a paper titled “Complementary Nuclear and Optical Scattering Experiments as a Capstone Laboratory,” and Chuck presented another titled “Using Astronomy to Teach Physics.”

Marie Walker (Psychological Science), Karl Brudvig ('13), Emily Lindberg ('13), Amy Beck ('13), Patrick Clark ('13) and Rebekah Jimenez ('14) presented a poster, "A Comparison Of Meditation And Self-Regulation Techniques For Reducing Angry Affect And Cognition" at the annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in New Orleans this January, 2013.

Jeff Rosoff (Mathematics and Computer Science) gave a presentation titled "The Monoid of Effective Divisor Classes on an Algebraic Surface" at the joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America, held Jan. 9-12 in San Diego, Calif. He also chaired a session on "Algebraic Varieties, Moduli Spaces and Singularities" at that meeting.

USPS Changes...The U.S. Postal Service plans to stop delivering and collecting letters and other first-class mail on Saturdays beginning Aug. 5, although packages will continue to be delivered. There also will be no changes to post offices that are currently open on Saturday and mail will continue to be delivered to PO boxes. This change will not impact the processing of incoming mail at the College. When preparing outgoing mail you should keep in mind that first class letters will not be collected or delivered on Saturdays and alter the sending date as necessary. As the USPS continues to enhance automation and restructure their workforce, we will need to change to meet the requirements.
