    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Dave Goodwin presenting “One hundred eighty two years and counting: A look back at the development of a discipline as seen in geology textbooks from the University archive”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Dave Goodwin, associate professor of geosciences, presenting “One hundred eighty two years and counting: A look back at the development of a discipline as seen in geology textbooks from the University archive.”There is a long-standing and storied tradition of geoscience education here at Denison. In fact, geology has been part of the core curriculum since the founding of the college. A recent and unexpected encounter with an old, dusty textbook spurred me to learn more about this history. In this presentation, I will briefly illustrate the development of the discipline as seen in the textbooks used in geology classes here at Denison. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series features Denison President Adam Weinberg presenting “Civil Society and Higher Education.” The next generation will inherit a series of complex and global problems that range from climate change to pandemic diseases. Managing these issues will require a vibrant and healthy civil society. Higher education must play a substantial role in this process. Doing so requires reframing global debates on higher education and rethinking the basic principles that shape contemporary approaches to civic education. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Tom Bressoud presenting "Cloud Computing: Opportunities and Challenges.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Tom Bressoud, associate professor of computer science and chair, presenting "Cloud Computing: Opportunities and Challenges.” In the past handful of years, Cloud Computing has become the next "Big Thing". But Cloud Computing means different things to different constituencies, from IT professionals to Financial Officers to Computer Scientists to ordinary users. And there is more than a little marketing hype that clouds the subject even further (pun intended). The goal of this talk is threefold -- first, we want to fill in the gaps and unify the perspectives of exactly what constitutes cloud computing. Second, we want to sort through the hype and see what opportunities are presented by Cloud Computing. And third, we will look, from a computer science perspective, at the challenges and interesting problems that arise from this new paradigm of computing. Open to emeriti faculty,faculty and staff.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Doug Spieles, associate professor of environmental studies, presenting "The Land Trust Movement in America and Licking County.” Most of us are familiar with the fabulous collection of protected public lands in the United States; hopefully you've had a chance to visit a national park, bird sanctuary, wilderness area or wildlife reserve. Less well known is the explosive movement to protect private lands in this country. Privately held land under conservation or agricultural protection now encompasses about 50 million acres in the U.S.--nearly the same area as our national parks. Protection of these private lands is overseen by 1,700 local, state, and national Land Trusts. In this presentation I'll explore the role of Land Trusts in terms of land use planning, community building and ecological conservation. In particular, I'll explain the work of our very own Licking Land Trust. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Toni King, associate provost; Erik Farley, associate dean of students and director of multicultural affairs; and the Posse Foundation Staff presenting "The Posse Program and Denison: Pragmatic Opportunity or Utopian Ideal?”The Posse Foundation identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Colleges then partner with the Posse Foundation to award these students full tuition scholarships and the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence as members of supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. Now that Denison has had more than a decade of experience with the Posse Program it is time to reflect on Posse and Denison. Has this programmatic initiative been primarily a pragmatic opportunity? Or has it helped Denison to foster a utopian ideal? Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Mark Orten presenting “Religious Beliefs and Practices at Denison.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Mark Orten, director of religious and spiritual life, presenting “Religious Beliefs and Practices at Denison.” In the Spring of 2013 the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life at Denison contracted with the Inter-Faith Youth Core in Chicago to administer a comprehensive survey to the entire student body with a 19.02% response rate. This assessment gives us baseline information regarding (1) overall religious identity and engagement among Denison students, (2) perceptions regarding the existing religious/spiritual communities and campus resources for religious/spiritual engagement (including its staff, facilities, programs) and, (3) general sentiments with regard to the importance of religious and spiritual dimensions of students’ experience at Denison (such as engaging questions of morality and ethics, participating in spiritual practices, etc.) as a part of their undergraduate education. Results of this survey and reflections by the Director of the CRSL and Chaplaincy Intern will be presented. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Margot Singer presenting “The Bendable Art of Creative Nonfiction.” Creative nonfiction—including memoir, narrative journalism, personal and lyric essays—is arguably the most exciting area on the literary scene today. But in recent years, the hot debate over where to draw the line between fact and fiction has sidelined important questions of literary form. How does nonfiction actually work? How does it recombine and transform elements of other genres? What distinguishes nonfiction from other kinds of prose? This presentation will share highlights from a new collection of critical essays, "Bending Genre: Essays on Creative Nonfiction," in which leading writers explore nonfiction’s hybridism, innovative structures, and unconventional forms. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Eric Liebl presenting “Stop Eating and Go Take a Walk!”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Eric Liebl presenting “Stop Eating and Go Take a Walk!” Liebl's lab uses genetic tools to study how the fruit fly central nervous system organizes itself during early development. Unexpectedly, they have uncovered a genetic interaction that alters the behavior of fly larva (caterpillars). At about four days into development normal fly larva switch from a focus on eating (called the forager stage) to being un- interested in eating and focused on crawling around in preparation to form a pupae (cocoon) (called the wanderer stage).

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jack Shuler presenting “The Woman Who (May Have) Stopped the Death Penalty.” The current shortage of lethal injection drugs in the US can be traced, in part, to the work of Reprieve International researcher Maya Foa. Foa's has helped many pharmaceutical companies block the sale of their drugs to death penalty states—including Ohio. But have there been unintended consequences because of her work such as recent botched executions? Or are we witnessing the beginning of the end of the death penalty in the US?

    Andy McCall, from the Department of Biology, presents "Plant Behavior: It's More Than Just Sit and Roll Over!"
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Andy McCall from the Department of Biology presents the Tuesday Lunch program. We normally think of animals behaving, or reacting to stimuli in the environment, but scientists have been studying behavior in plants since Darwin's time. Recently, researchers have found that plants can communicate environmental information to each other, choose host plants to parasitize, and even sense the sounds of insect damage! I will explore these fascinating cases with you and discuss how the study of plant behavior might benefit humankind.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Steven Olmschenk presenting “Quantum Information with Atoms and Light.” Rapid advances in information technology have revolutionized the way we go about our daily lives. However, the way this technology stores and processes information is still based on classical physics. Utilizing the features of quantum physics may allow for information processors that could eclipse the power of any conventional computer, and yield insight into the unintuitive theory of quantum physics. After a broad overview, Olmschenk will highlight the effort at Denison University to use laser-cooled, single atomic ions and light to store, process, and transfer quantum information.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Linda Krumholz presenting "Reading and Responsibility in Toni Morrison's 'A Mercy.'" In Toni Morrison’s novel "A Mercy," set in New England in 1690, Florens, a 16-year-old African-American woman, is on a journey to summon the blacksmith to save the life of her Mistress; the blacksmith is a free black man, a healer, and Florens’ lover. The small group of people with whom Florens lives, a multicultural, women-centered, somewhat egalitarian group becomes, for a short time, a family. The blacksmith and Florens reveal the role of African people in the construction of whiteness and Americanness as well as connections between economics, gender, sexuality, law, and religion in emerging constructions of blackness. Through Florens’ quest and the dissolution of the family group, Morrison signals both the failures and the possibilities revealed by revised understandings of American history.

Fiction and non-fiction narratives about American involvement in Viet Nam before and during the 1965-1973 Vietnam War tell historically contextualized tales of Americans arrogantly following in the steps of their French allies, whose war to recolonize Viet Nam after World War II the United States funded and then took up after the French defeat in 1954 and the division of the country into North and South Vietnam.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Hanada Al-Masri presenting "Jordanian Editorial Cartoons: An Insider’s Perspective Into Jordanian Culture." Editorial cartoons have struck a nerve in popular culture. They represent a rich source of social entertainment and criticism, they are available to a wide readership, and they have a wide circulation through daily newspapers, magazines, and recently the Internet and social media. This talk is based on a case study of the editorial cartoons drawn by the eminent Jordanian cartoonist Imad Hajjaj. It takes us into the political, cultural, social and ideological issues pertaining to Jordanian society from the cartoonist’s perspective as an insider in the Jordanian society. The talk concludes with an inventory of Hajjaj’s distinctive linguistic characteristics and stylistic techniques.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Harry Heft presenting “Public Spaces and the Life of Communities: Reflections on the Design of the Denison Campus.” The social significance of spaces in the public realm, mostly notably, “the spaces between buildings,” has tended to be neglected in the design fields for over a century. It was once well understood that the “the spaces between buildings” are where civic life takes root and possibilities for unplanned, meaningful social relationships reside. Over the past 30 years designers and planners have slowly rediscovered the significance of creating the kinds of public spaces that cultivate social exchange. How does the Denison campus measure up in this regard? Has the undeniably ‘picturesque’ character of our campus led us to overlook the need for design features that contribute to the development of a rich living community?
