    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.

    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.

    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Doug Spieles presenting "The Land Trust Movement in America and Licking County.”
    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.

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). The mutant animals remain foragers. So if you find yourself constantly interested in eating and not especially interested in moving around or exercising, this talk may be of interest.

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?

    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.

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.

    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.

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.

    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?

In this presentation, Smith will discuss the role that Denison faculty have played in the process of getting the Land Lab approved and our on-going role in developing the Land Lab as a teaching and learning resource for the Granville School District (and Denison). Smith will also discuss how the collaboration between Denison and the School District is providing us the opportunity to pursue some very interesting research questions.

Active Shooter Incidents (ASI) are a reoccurring and all-too-familiar trend in the United States. The role of Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) administrators is vital to the overarching preparation of policies and procedures for an effective response to ASIs. IHL administrators’ support of Educational Law Enforcement is marginal, partly due to political power structures within the universities. Due to the increasing awareness of the consequences of an ASI, it is becoming more apparent that the IHLs must be better coordinated to prepare for High Risk Low Frequency Incidents.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jill Gillespie, visiting assistant professor, Women’s and Gender Studies, presenting a lecture titled "What are Little Girls Made of? 21st-Century Girlhood in Inside Out." While the ‘girl’ has long been a figure of concern, over the past 25 years, concern for ‘the girl’ has proliferated in popular media, literature, television, films, in addition to academic conferences and feminist journals. Not only have girls become a public presence and interest, there has also been an increasing range of representations of them, their lives, and concerns. This widespread interest in the state of being a girl has resulted in a host of discourses surrounding girlhood. This talk uses the images in and discourses about the popular and critically acclaimed film, "Inside Out," to address some critical questions about perspectives on the changing constructions of girlhood, shifting subjectivities for girls, and the ways in which gender impacts the understanding of the workings of the self.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Joy Sperling, professor, Art History, presenting a lecture titled "The Female Embodiment of an Enchanted State: Women and Visual Culture in New Mexico, 1918-1950." When New Mexico became a state in 1912, it was seriously economically depressed and its reputation desperately needed rebranding. It was known mostly as a site of vicious range wars and lawlessness, where an intrepid (male) adventurer might find good hunting and fishing, or where a ‘lunger’ (tuberculosis patient) might (or might not) recover. But none of these activities were the basis of a solid economy. Sperling's research focuses on the establishment of the still thriving tourist industry in New Mexico, the feminization of the state’s narrative, and on the contributions that a number of women made to the visual culture of the state as they enacted the new, but remarkably tenacious narrative of New Mexico as an “enchanted” state. Her research inverts the current narrative of the visual culture of the Southwest by retrieving the work of women artists that has been erased from the historical record. She will show works and use information from numerous historical archives.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jessica Bean, associate proffesor, Economics, presenting a lecture titled "Sex Sells: Prostitution in Economics and History." The economics of prostitution has received a recent surge of attention, both in the academic literature and in a series of articles published in The Economist – including a very recent editorial arguing in favor of decriminalizing sex work. A lot of this renewed interest has been driven by the greatly increased availability of data that has come from the movement of the sex trade to the internet, and has allowed economists to apply standard tools of economic analysis to the market for transactional sex. Economic historians, however, have thus far largely ignored sex work as a dimension of female labor market participation in the past, most likely because of the lack of quantitative sources and the often informal or underground nature of prostitution as a form of employment. In an ongoing research project that makes use of the limited historical data that does exist, a co-author and Bean are examining the role that prostitution played in female labor market opportunities in Europe during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In this talk, Bean will discuss the approaches that economists have taken to studying prostitution, highlight some of the more interesting findings in the recent empirical and theoretical literature, and then discuss the historical context and how the economics of prostitution may have differed – or not – in the nineteenth century.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Suzanne Condray, professor, Communication, presenting a lecture titled "A First Lady Takes a Bow: Betty Ford’s Performance of Equality." From the moment Betty Ford stepped before cameras in her first press conferences, audiences saw a First Lady unapologetic about her commitment to women’s equality. Television captured the humor, the grace and the candor as she leveraged her identity as a traditional wife and mother, usurped the language of radical feminists and scaled the distance between contingencies of women. In the end, her campaign may not have won passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, but it did further a national dialogue on gender equity.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Adam Davis, associate professor, History, presenting a lecture titled "The Medieval Charitable Revolution and the Rise of the Hospital." Beginning in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, hundreds of hospitals were founded to provide for Europe’s poor and sick. Many of these hospitals were founded by lay men and women. What did charitable giving and charitable service mean to people in the Middle Ages? What was the relationship between medieval commercial prosperity and the rise of the hospital as a charitable and religious institution? This talk will examine the variety of complex circumstances and motives underlying the creation and functioning of hospitals, including their role in (and impact on) the larger society.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Veerendra Lele, associate professor, Sociology/Anthropology, presenting a lecture titled "Semiotic Ideologies of Race: Racial Profiling, Retroduction, and ‘The Fact of Blackness’. " This talk presents the semiotic features and errors of logic at work in racial profiling and racial reckoning. Anthropologists have long researched the concept of human “race”, including biological, linguistic, archaeological, and cultural approaches to this topic, and anthropologists now largely agree that “race” is principally a cultural concept, not a biological one. Yet practices of race involve inferences about physical attributes including human phenotype. While much attention has been given to understanding how race operates as a discursive form through which power is exercised, less analysis has been done on the “logic” of racial reckoning, and more generally, on the semiosis of race. What semiotic forms and ideologies are at work in racial practices? How do semiotic ideologies of race reproduce cultural distinctions and hierarchies? In short, how does race work semiotically and what can a semiotic analysis of race reveal? Lele examines a specific social practice – racial profiling – and the roles of iconicity and retroduction in it. He argues that iconicity is central to practices of race and that iconicity contributes to erroneous conditional probabilities and the retroductive reasoning that mistakenly serve to justify racial profiling, led by and leading to what Frantz Fanon called ‘The Fact of Blackness’.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Yvonne-Marie Mokam, assistant professor, Modern Languages, presenting a lecture titled "Historical Detective Fiction and the ‘Duty of Memory’." Mokam's presentation suggests that historical detective fiction is a valuable tool to reconstruct the past. In particular, she argues that Léonora Miano’s latest novel makes a unique contribution to the duty of remembering slavery. Francophone African literature has an obvious affinity with history, and many writers have reconstructed the past by deconstructing colonial archives and official historiography, uncovering concealed aspects of history, and recounting more recent tragedies. In this memorial endeavor, however, writers have not treated all forgotten historical aspects with the same level of interest; African literature has long been silent on the transatlantic slave trade, in spite of the fact that some 14 million Africans were forcibly displaced between the 16th and 19th centuries. Léonora Miano seeks to address this omission in La Saison de l’ombre (Femina Award 2013), which explores the issue from the perspective of slave capture and the quest for knowledge. Mokam's presentation suggests that by using a narrative constructed around the point of view of those who “stayed behind,” the author sheds light on a historical tragedy that has long been invisible in African literature, particularly because she integrates female consciousness in a genre that has been largely dominated by male writers.
