Robert Loren Mack
Faculty  |  Communication
Visiting Assistant Professor
Higley Hall
401B
740-587-6210
Degree(s): 
B.A. Northern Arizona University: M.A. Colorado State University; ABD The University of Texas at Austin (2015)
Biography: 

Robert Mack is currently concluding his PhD in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Rhetoric & Language at the University of Texas at Austin. He is generally interested in studying the text-audience interface in U.S. American popular culture, and he draws widely on rhetorical, reception, critical, and psychoanalytic approaches in order to analyze this relationship. His research and teaching in communication contemplate the role of audience subjectivity and agency in an increasingly mediated social landscape.

Robert's research focuses on topics like authorship, fandom, scandal, and the relationship between the individual and the cultural imaginary. His dissertation sketches the contours of a "rhetoric of projective identification" and considers how this rhetorical mode operates within the context of television reception. Other recent projects have analyzed peculiar patterns in contemporary media (including images of maternal torment and narratives of terminally ill artistic geniuses) for the ways in which these patterns crystalize widespread social anxieties. A special subset of his work revisits notable media phenomena from the past (the original broadcast of The Twilight Zone, the 1992 premiere of The Crying Game, the break of the 1950s quiz show scandals) in order to reevaluate related texts from new perspectives. 

Robert is also co-author of Critical Media Studies (2nd ed). At Denison he teaches Public Address and Argumentation.

Biography: 

I'm a plant evolutionary ecologist with special interests in pollination biology and plant-herbivore interactions. I also am interested in how insect phenology is affected by climate change. I am a big fan of field work and have study sites in Ohio, Arizona, and California. During the Ohio winters, I use manipulative experiments in the greenhouse to answer some of my questions (especially # 2 below).

Research: 

My current research questions are:

  1. Does variability in herbivore pressure over time affect the evolution of induced resistance in wild radish?
  2. How and why do florivores (things that eat flowers) choose what flowers to eat?
  3. How does florivory affect pollination and fitness in sacred Datura, Datura wrightii, in Arizona?
  4. What factors are affecting butterfly species richness and diversity in Northern California?

740-587-6248
Service: 
2013-Present
Degree(s): 
B.A., University of California, Berkeley; M.S., Ph.D., University of California, Irvine
Biography: 

May Mei joined the Denison faculty in 2013 after completing her PhD in mathematics at the University of California, Irvine. In addition to teaching a wide variety of courses, Dr. Mei is the faculty advisor for Pi Mu Epsilon, the math honor society. Also, Dr. Mei relishes conversations with aspiring young mathematicians and encourages her students and other math majors to visit her office.

Selected student research projects:

  • Asymptotic Spectral Properties of the Schrodinger Operator with Thue-Morse Potential, William Clark (Ohio University), Rachael Kline (St. John Fisher College), Michaela Stone (Louisiana State University), Summer 2013
  • On the Spectrum of the Penrose Laplacian, Michael Dairyko (Iowa State University), Christine Hoffman (Smith College), Julie Pattyson (University of St Joseph), Hailee Peck (Millikin University), Summer 2013
  • Asymptotic Analysis of the Spectrum of the Discrete Hamiltonian with Period Doubling Potential, Meg Fields (University of North Carolina at Asheville), Tara Hudson (University at Buffalo), Maria Markovich (Shippensburg University), Summer 2013
  • Using the Ammann-Beenker Tiling to Model Quasicrystals, Brittany Livsey (Georgetown College), Jason Mifsud (Binghamton University), Francesca Romano (Siena College), Summer 2013
Research: 

My research interests involve the application of dynamical systems (uniformly hyperbolic, partially hyperbolic, symbolic) to mathematical physics. Specifically, I use dynamical techniques to investigate spectral properties of operators involved in the study of quasicrystals.

I'm also interested in conducting numerical experiments related to mathematical models that describe how an electron passes through quasicrystalline material. This is an area with many possibilities for undergraduate research.

Selected publications:

  • Tridiagonal substitution Hamiltonians, I. Spectral analysis (with W. Yessen), submitted.
  • Spectra of Discrete Schrödinger Operators with Primitive Invertible Substitution Potentials, submitted.

Service: 
1976-1977, 1981-Present
Degree(s): 
B.F.A., Denison University; M.A., Wesleyan University; Ph.D., New York University
Biography: 

Dr. Gill Wright Miller, Associate Professor of Dance and Women's Studies, has been at Denison full-time since 1981. Dr. Miller earned her PhD from New York University in Dance and Women's Studies, her MA from Wesleyan University in Movement Studies, and her BFA in Performance from Denison University.

Dr. Miller's written research concerns public constructions of the pregnant body, healing from a developmental movement base, and body politics in general. She is highly involved in the world of experiential anatomy, most specifically Body-Mind Centering. She has received several grants for her work, including a major grant from the University of Minnesota, in “Embodied Research.” She accepted the coveted Arnold Professorship at Whitman College in Washington for Spring 2009. Her most recent book, Exploring Body-Mind Centering: An Anthology in Experience and Method, was published in 2011, and she is the author of many essays, including the 2011 publications of “Women in Dance” in The Encyclopedia of Women in Today's World and “Creativity and Mothering” in The Encyclopedia of Motherhood.” This past year, Dr. Miller published a chapter called “The Transmission of African-American Concert and American Jazz Dance” in Jazz Dance: Roots and Branches (Oliver and Guarino, 2013.) She is also compiling an anthology on African dance. Dr. Miller is currently working on an essay on research and methodology in dance studies and a second book on Somatics and the Body Movement in the United States, tentatively titled Pedagogies of the Body.

Dr. Miller teaches coursework in somatics, movement analysis, and cultural studies. Besides teaching somatics (including work from Ideokinesis, Bartenieff Fundamentals and Basic Neurocellular Patterns from Body-Mind Centering) and movement analysis (including reconstructing sections of works by Humphrey, Weidman, Limon, Cunningham, and others) every year, her recent courses include topics in dance's cultural studies, such “Modernism ReComposed,” “Postmodernism in Dance,” and “African-American Concert Dance,” and “The Body in Performance.”
