    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). 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.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ping Yang presenting "Chinese Philosophy and Human Communication."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ping Yang presenting "Chinese Philosophy and Human Communication." The three major philosophical forces of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism have made great impacts on Chinese culture and communication patterns. This talk deals with communication from the perspective of Chinese philosophy, including the application of the thoughts of the three major philosophical forces and other schools to the levels of interpersonal, intercultural, and political communication. It approaches the topics through a harmony theory of Chinese communication, which makes significant contributions to the contemporary conceptualizations of Hexie, a widely adopted concept and communication practice in China’s current social settings. Ping Yang is assistant professor in the Department of Communication. Her teaching and scholarship focus on the intersections of culture, communication, and technology. Her primary research interests include identity construction, cultural adaptation, and intercultural online communication. Yang received her Ph.D. in intercultural communication from Arizona State University. Her M.A. degrees are in communication from Bowling Green State University and linguistics from Xi'an International Studies University.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Andy McCall presenting "Honeybee Colony Collapse: A Global Perspective."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Andy McCall presenting "Honeybee Colony Collapse: A Global Perspective. Honeybee colonies across the globe have suffered a high proportion of failure in the past ten years, which has been termed colony collapse disorder (CCD). In this presentation, McCall will explain how global trade and travel promote CCD, and some economic reasons why the media covers CCD so extensively in North America. McCall will close by detailing various statutes passed by the U.S. and the E.U. that aim to limit the spread and impact of CCD. Andy McCall is an associate professor of biology at Denison. He spent the last year studying honeybee pollination in the Sonoran desert.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jack Shuler presenting “The Woman Who (May Have) Stopped the Death Penalty.”
    Show Event Details
    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?

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Micaela Vivero presenting "(Im)possible Interventions."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Micaela Vivero presenting "(Im)possible Interventions." In the project “(Im)possible Interventions” Vivero creates sculptures that are modest in scale, but for which Vivero invents imaginary lives as public sculptures through photomontages. She pretends that they are public sculptures. In this project she uses Photoshop not as a means to show how the sculptures could possibly be if they were enlarged, because there is no intention to ever make them big. Rather, Vivero uses Photoshop as a tool to challenge concepts within the urban landscape. She wants the viewers to ask questions like: Are these real? Would someone build/fund something like that? Vivero encourages the viewer to consider the possibility of something that looks impossible. Micaela Vivero, associate professor and chair of studio art, has been an artist in residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha/NE/USA, Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin/Ireland, Chretzeturm in Stein am Rhein/Switzerland, Koli Ryynaanen in Koli/Finland, Rondo Marienmühle in Graz/Austria, Accoss Foundation in Yerevan/Armenia and Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt/Germany. She has exhibited her artwork in Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, the USA, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland, Finland, Austria, Bulgaria and Armenia.

    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.
