Mark Alan Wade has toured Austria, Slovakia and Hungary as principal trumpet of the Classical Music Festival Orchestra and Brass Quintet of Eisenstadt, Austria. He has performed in the very Esterházy Palace wherein the celebrated trumpet concertos of Haydn and Hummel were premiered some two hundred years earlier. On different occasions in the United States, Mark Wade has performed for audiences of notables including: Presidents George Bush Sr. and President Bill Clinton, Ross Perot, and the former U.S. Secretary of Defense, William S. Cohen.
Wade has performed with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra, Benedict College Community Orchestra (Principal trumpet: Columbia, SC) the Springfield Symphony Orchestra (Ohio), and is a member of the Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra. As former principal trumpet of The Ohio State University Wind Symphony, Dr. Wade can be heard on the wind ensemble’s CD entitled, The Winds of Nagual, a premier wind ensemble recording released under the Naxos recording label in 2006. A winner of the coveted Doctor of Musical Arts Concerto Contest, he appeared as a soloist with The Ohio State University Symphony Orchestra in 2007.
Prior to his teaching appointment at Denison University, Wade, a veteran public school music educator, also taught at the Methodist Theological Seminary of Ohio and at The Ohio State University as a graduate teaching associate in trumpet. There he received his Doctorate of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees. Dr. Wade’s research concerns the medical problems associated with trumpet playing. In addition, He holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Ohio Wesleyan University.
In addition to his career as a trumpet player, Wade is also a highly sought-after hammered dulcimer performer, composer and teacher. A National Hammered Dulcimer Champion, he can be heard on more than a dozen recordings and is a columnist for the Dulcimer Players News journal. He has personally released six CDs and two popular method books. His most recent solo classical hammered dulcimer CD, Serenade, has received rave reviews since its release in 2006. His recent students include the 2004 and 2007 National Hammered Dulcimer Champions.
Professor Walley’s primary research interest is avant-garde or experimental cinema, a radically alternative filmmaking tradition related more to avant-garde and modernist art than to mainstream cinema. He has focused especially on “expanded cinema,” cinematic works that alter or abandon the familiar materials, forms, and spaces of traditional film production and exhibition. These include film and video installation, live performances using film projection, and moving image works that cross boundaries between cinema and other art forms like painting, sculpture, and conceptual art.
Expanded cinema emerged in the 1960s, in the midst of major changes in moving image technology and new ideas about the nature of art. It has re-emerged as an important form in the last two decades; a major part of Walley’s research involves cultivating working relationships with artists who make avant-garde and expanded cinema. His writing on these subjects has appeared in numerous scholarly journals, including October, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, The Moving Image Review and Art Journal, Millennium Film Journal, and The Velvet Light Trap. He is writing a book about expanded cinema and what it tells us about the nature of cinema and its relationship to the other arts.
Walley’s other research interests include the history of film theory, the effects of technological changes on film production and cinematic visual style, documentary cinema, and the horror film (a seminar on which he regularly teaches).
I have been at Denison since 1996, following teaching experience at Saint Mary’s College of California and a research postdoc at SRI International. I enjoy teaching a broad range of courses including introductory physics, introductory astronomy, modern physics, electromagnetic theory, electronics and advanced lab. In addition, I have developed and taught several courses specifically for non-science majors, including "”Renewable Energy and Sustainability” (FYS 102), “Energy and the Environment" (Physics 100) and "Coming of Age in the Milky Way: Aristotle to Galileo to Einstein" (Honors 135 and FYS 102). I am an active member of the American Physical Society, the American Association of Physics Teachers, the Council on Undergraduate Research, and Project Kaleidoscope – F21.
My research interests include laser spectroscopy, negative ions, and atomic and molecular collisions. The overall goal of our research program is to understand better the fundamental physics of electron binding particularly regarding the role of electron correlations, that is, how electrons "talk" to each other within an atom. Together with Prof. Dan Gibson (also of Denison's Physics Department) and many student collaborators, we have developed an on-campus ion beam mass spectrometer to investigate properties of negative ions using lasers. We do complementary experiments using the synchrotron Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. Our projects have included: investigations of the effects of static electric fields on laser photodetachment from negative ions (which leads to the formation of single electron interferometers); precision measurements of atomic electron affinities using tunable photodetachment spectroscopy; and investigations of inner-shell photodetachment at the ALS. This research is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Research Corporation, and Denison University. Interested students are always welcome to join our research group!

My research interests concern the role that socially shared ideas and beliefs play in shaping people’s behavior, especially their political action. In my dissertation research, I explored the question of why politicians in Jamaica chose to use Rastafarian symbols and reggae music in electoral campaigns (Race, Class and Political Symbols, Transaction Press 1985). My second book project was an examination of the way post-colonial Jamaica has revised its historical narratives and a study of heritage tourism development and unofficial community history in Port Royal, Jamaica (Planning the Past, Lexington Books 2006). I have published research articles about conspiracy theories in African-American political culture (in The Journal of Black Studies) the uses that Jamaican politicians make of historical narratives (in Caribbean Quarterly), the way Columbus residents express hostile attitudes toward Somali immigrants (in Bildhaan: A Journal of Somali Studies), and the presentation of revolutionary history in Cuban museums and commemorative events (in the Canadian Journal of Caribbean and Latin American Studies). Recently I have turned my attention to the way Cuba is portrayed in political discourse in the United States.
Megan Waters has served as the assistant men’s and women’s swimming coach since the fall of 2012. A 2011 graduate of Princeton University, Waters was a four-year member of its varsity swimming and diving team. She spent 2011-12 as a volunteer assistant coach with the Tigers, assisting with recruiting, day-to-day office work while leading the sprint group during workouts.
As a member of the Princeton swimming and diving team she was a 12-time Ivy League champion and qualified for the 2011 NCAA Division I Championship in the 50 and 100 freestyles. A two-time qualifier for the United States Olympic Trials (2008; 2012), Waters was named the Ivy League Swimmer of the Meet in 2011 after winning three individual titles and four relay championships. At that meet she set Princeton records in the 50 free (22.36), the 100 free (48.66), and the 100 fly (53.38).
In 2010 she received Princeton’s Big Al Award for leadership, sportsmanship and persistent dedication to team success. One year prior she was named the team’s Most Improved Swimmer. She received a Bachelor of Arts in politics with an American concentration while minoring in environmental studies.
James Weaver received his BA (1998) in English from Allegheny College and earned his MA (2000) and PhD (2006) from Ohio State University, specializing in nineteenth-century American literature. He joined the Denison faculty as a visiting assistant professor in 2006 before becoming an assistant professor in 2011. Weaver's research focuses especially on the intersections of literature and the environment. He is currently working on several articles about American travel literature and nationalism in the 1850s-1880s, and will soon begin work on a project exploring social media and contemporary narratives of long-distance hiking. In addition to teaching courses in first-year writing and surveys and seminars in American literature, he often teaches literature courses cross-listed with Denison's environmental studies program.
