    12:30 PM
    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Steven Olmschenk presenting “Quantum Information with Atoms and Light.”
    Show Event Details
    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.
    Address: Burton D. Morgan Center, Knobel Hall, Denison University, 150 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Taku Suzuki presenting “Traveling with/for the Dead: Japanese and Okinawan Pilgrimages to the Mariana Islands.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Taku Suzuki presenting “Traveling with/for the Dead: Japanese and Okinawan Pilgrimages to the Mariana Islands.” Suzuki's talk introduces pilgrimages to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) made by groups of Japanese and Okinawans over the past 50 years. These trips have been made by the adult children of the Japanese soldiers who fought and died in the Battle of the Marianas in 1944 and those Okinawans who lived on the islands during the Imperial Japan’s colonial rule and repatriated to Okinawa after the Asia-Pacific War.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Karen Graves presenting “Pivotal in His Absence: Lewis Powell’s Influence on the Legal Status of Lesbian and Gay Teachers.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Karen Graves presenting “Pivotal in His Absence: Lewis Powell’s Influence on the Legal Status of Lesbian and Gay Teachers.” Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr. issued a number of critical educational policy decisions regarding affirmative action, desegregation, school funding, and gay rights. In this paper Graves explores two cases taken up by the Court in subsequent years: Board of Education v. National Gay Task Force (1985) and Bowers v. Hardwick (1986).

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Linda Krumholz presenting “Reading and Responsibility in Toni Morrison’s A Mercy.”
    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.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jessica Rettig presenting “Exploring the Biology of Small Ponds.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jessica Rettig presenting “Exploring the Biology of Small Ponds.” Small ponds are a noticeable feature on the Ohio landscape, home to a diversity of plants, invertebrate animals, and fish. This presentation showcases the biology of local ponds by sharing research experiences and data collected by Denison students and Dr. Rettig. We will learn about the biology of organisms like sunfish, aquatic insects, zooplankton, and water weeds, and consider the population and community ecology of Denison’s Ebaugh Pond and other local ponds.
