    12:30 PM
    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Geoff Smith, professor of biology, with a lecture titled "The GIS Land Lab: From Corn Field to Collaboration."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Geoff Smith, professor of biology, with a lecture titled "The GIS Land Lab: From Corn Field to Collaboration." In the summer and fall of 2014, the Granville School District, with the support of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, reclaimed corn fields adjacent to the Granville Intermediate School (GIS) to create a “Land Lab.” The GIS Land Lab serves multiple purposes, including creating wetlands and surrounding areas to improve bird habitat and creating a living laboratory for student learning. 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.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series presents Director of Campus Safety Daniel Hect discussing high-risk, low-frequency incidents on college campuses.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series presents Director of Campus Safety Daniel Hect whose talk is titled "Preparing to Respond to High Risk Low Frequency Incidents on College Campuses." 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.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Melissa Huerta, associate professor of modern languages, presenting a lecture titled "Adventures in teatrolandia, or How I Spent my Summer."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Melissa Huerta, associate professor of modern languages, presenting a lecture titled "Adventures in teatrolandia, or How I Spent my Summer." This summer, through support from a National Endowment for the Humanities grant, Huerta traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to study Latin American Theater. The seminar allowed participants from across the country to attend over a dozen plays, converse with Argentine theater-makers, and, as a group, engage in multi-disciplinary discussions regarding our work as scholars of theater, practitioners, and theater enthusiasts. Huerta will focus on the impact the NEH summer seminar had on her understanding of contemporary theater in the Americas, her approaches to teaching Latin-American theater at Denison, and her current and future research projects. The theatrical, cultural, and linguistic immersion Huerta received will not only benefit her research, but more importantly, it will inform her teaching philosophies, anchored in student-centered, collective and embodied work in a cross-cultural and linguistic classroom.

    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."
    Show Event Details
    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.

    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."
    Show Event Details
    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.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Lew Ludwig, professor, Mathematics and Computer Sciences, presenting a lecture titled "How you too can join the 3D printing craze!" In November 2014, Ludwig saw a presentation on 3D printing at a conference and was immediately hooked. With next to no experience, by January 2015, he was leading a seminar of 12 students in a one-credit hour 3D Printing and Design class. In this presentation Ludwig will discuss the process of bringing a 3D printer to our campus, the freeware software used by his students, several of their successful and unsuccessful design projects, and some of their lessons learned.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jessica Bean, associate proffesor, Economics, presenting a lecture titled "Sex Sells: Prostitution in Economics and History."
    Show Event Details
    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.

    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."
    Show Event Details
    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.
