Biography: 

Mark Alan Wade has toured Austria, Slovakia and Hungary as principal trumpet of the Classical Music Festival Orchestra and Brass Quintet of Eisenstadt, Austria. He has performed in the very Esterházy Palace wherein the celebrated trumpet concertos of Haydn and Hummel were premiered some two hundred years earlier. On different occasions in the United States, Mark Wade has performed for audiences of notables including: Presidents George Bush Sr. and President Bill Clinton, Ross Perot, and the former U.S. Secretary of Defense, William S. Cohen.

Wade has performed with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra, Benedict College Community Orchestra (Principal trumpet: Columbia, SC) the Springfield Symphony Orchestra (Ohio), and is a member of the Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed with the Beach Boys and The Buckinghams. Recently he won the positions of Principal Trumpet of the McConnell Arts Center Chamber Orchestra and Second Trumpet and soloist with the Saint Joseph Cathedral Orchestra (heard on WOSU). As former principal trumpet of The Ohio State University Wind Symphony, Dr. Wade can be heard on the wind ensemble’s CD entitled, The Winds of Nagual, a premier wind ensemble recording released under the Naxos recording label in 2006. A winner of the coveted Doctor of Musical Arts Concerto Contest, he appeared as a soloist with The Ohio State University Symphony Orchestra in 2007.

Prior to his teaching appointment at Denison University, Wade taught public school music for four years and at the Methodist Theological Seminary of Ohio. He also served as a graduate teaching associate in trumpet at The Ohio State University where he earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees studying trumpet and conducting with Prof. Tim Leasure and Dr. Russel Mikkelson respectively.

In addition to his career as a trumpet player and band conductor, Wade is also a highly sought-after hammered dulcimer performer, composer and teacher. A National Hammered Dulcimer Champion, he can be heard on more than a dozen recordings and is a columnist for the Dulcimer Players News Journal. He has personally released seven CDs and six popular method books. His recent students include the 2004, 2007 and 2012 National Hammered Dulcimer Champions.

His most recent solo hammered dulcimer CD, Grass Roots, has received rave reviews since its release in 2013. This CD won him an invitation to perform at the world’s largest and most prestigious Bluegrass festival, The Walnut Valley Festival, in Winfield, Kansas, where he performed as a headliner with Denison faculty members, Dr. Andy Carlson and Casey Cook, along with Grammy Award winning artists. On the merit of this recording Dr. Wade was recently invited to perform in Taiwan at the World Cimbalom Congress and National Taichung University. In Taiwan he lectured on American music and presented his CD in concert.

Mark Wade lives in New Albany with his wife and two young sons.

  • This is the culmination of years of research on the medical problems of trumpet players. Though the genesis of this work is my dissertation, the research continues in scholarship at Denison University. I chose the website medium to present this research because of the fast pace in which medical research becomes obsolete. My goal throughout this process was to make this narrow field of obscure research more readily available to musicians and physicians (who may rarely treat trumpet players with enough frequency to be well-versed in research specific to trumpeters; e.g., ruptured orbicularis oris). The website format has strategic programming to maximize its results in search engines and also allows for instant updates as new research is published.

Faculty  |  Cinema
Associate Professor

740-587-8552
Service: 
2005-Present
Degree(s): 
B.A., Bard College; M.A., Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, Madison
Biography: 

Professor Walley’s primary research interest is avant-garde or experimental cinema, a radically alternative filmmaking tradition related more to avant-garde and modernist art than to mainstream cinema. He has focused especially on “expanded cinema,” cinematic works that alter or abandon the familiar materials, forms, and spaces of traditional film production and exhibition. These include film and video installation, live performances using film projection, and moving image works that cross boundaries between cinema and other art forms like painting, sculpture, and conceptual art.

Expanded cinema emerged in the 1960s, in the midst of major changes in moving image technology and new ideas about the nature of art. It has re-emerged as an important form in the last two decades; a major part of Walley’s research involves cultivating working relationships with artists who make avant-garde and expanded cinema. His writing on these subjects has appeared in numerous scholarly journals, including October, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, The Moving Image Review and Art Journal, Millennium Film Journal, and The Velvet Light Trap. He is writing a book about expanded cinema and what it tells us about the nature of cinema and its relationship to the other arts.

Walley’s other research interests include the history of film theory, the effects of technological changes on film production and cinematic visual style, documentary cinema, and the horror film (a seminar on which he regularly teaches).

Degree(s): 
B.S., University of Dallas; M.A., Ph.D., Rice University
Biography: 

I have been at Denison since 1996, following teaching experience at Saint Mary’s College of California and a research postdoc at SRI International. I enjoy teaching a broad range of courses including introductory physics, introductory astronomy, modern physics, electromagnetic theory, electronics and advanced lab. In addition, I have developed and taught several courses specifically for non-science majors, including “”Renewable Energy and Sustainability” (FYS 102), “Energy and the Environment” (Physics 100) and “Coming of Age in the Milky Way: Aristotle to Galileo to Einstein” (Honors 135 and FYS 102). I am an active member of the American Physical Society, the American Association of Physics Teachers, the Council on Undergraduate Research, and Project Kaleidoscope – F21.

Research: 

My research interests include laser spectroscopy, negative ions, and atomic and molecular collisions. The overall goal of our research program is to understand better the fundamental physics of electron binding particularly regarding the role of electron correlations, that is, how electrons "talk" to each other within an atom. Together with Prof. Dan Gibson (also of Denison's Physics Department) and many student collaborators, we have developed an on-campus ion beam mass spectrometer to investigate properties of negative ions using lasers. We do complementary experiments using the synchrotron Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. Our projects have included: investigations of the effects of static electric fields on laser photodetachment from negative ions (which leads to the formation of single electron interferometers); precision measurements of atomic electron affinities using tunable photodetachment spectroscopy; and investigations of inner-shell photodetachment at the ALS. This research is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Research Corporation, and Denison University. Interested students are always welcome to join our research group!

Research: 

My research interests concern the role that socially shared ideas and beliefs play in shaping people’s behavior, especially their political action. In my dissertation research, I explored the question of why politicians in Jamaica chose to use Rastafarian symbols and reggae music in electoral campaigns (Race, Class and Political Symbols, Transaction Press 1985). My second book project was an examination of the way post-colonial Jamaica has revised its historical narratives and a study of heritage tourism development and unofficial community history in Port Royal, Jamaica (Planning the Past, Lexington Books 2006). I have published research articles about conspiracy theories in African-American political culture (in The Journal of Black Studies) the uses that Jamaican politicians make of historical narratives (in Caribbean Quarterly), the way Columbus residents express hostile attitudes toward Somali immigrants (in Bildhaan: A Journal of Somali Studies), and the presentation of revolutionary history in Cuban museums and commemorative events (in the Canadian Journal of Caribbean and Latin American Studies). Recently I have turned my attention to the way Cuba is portrayed in political discourse in the United States.

Research: 

My research focuses on the foundations of quantum mechanics. As this physical theory is understood through its mathematical models (a fancy way of saying no one has an intuitive understanding of quantum mechanics), questions about foundational issues are well suited for attack by mathematical methods. Quite often the approach taken by my collaborators and me involves methods drawn from information theory. One our key results – the classical capacity of quantum channels – is a prime example of the application of such information theoretic methods. This result not only sets bounds for actual physical methods of communication it also provides a physical meaning to the mathematical construct know as “quantum entropy.”

Recently I have conducted recent research with students studying the entanglement structure of finite vector spaces; that is vector space over finite fields. Entanglement is the feature of quantum systems that provides ability for quantum systems to be teleported and for the increased power offered by quantum computing. Entanglement is also the feature of quantum mechanics that caused scientists such as Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen to doubt the ultimate validity of quantum mechanics. Einstein is famous for referring to the “spooky action at a distance” that entanglement leads too. But every prediction made by entanglement based models has so far stood the test of experiment. In finite fields, much of the abstract structure of quantum mechanics is simplified but may of the odd properties of quantum systems remain. These finite systems provide a handy “test bed” for conjectures about entanglement. My students have expanded our knowledge about entanglement in such simple systems. Students undertaking such research learn the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and finite field theory.

Degree(s): 
B.A., Denison University; M.Div., Union Theological Seminary; D.Min., Vanderbilt University
Biography: 
David Woodyard's personal and professional interests focus on the intersection of religion and society. As a theologian he is interested in developing–and helping students to develop–a public theology. He aspires to explore the Christian tradition as it addresses the personal sphere but also as it makes claims upon the social realm. Authentic faith leads to civic responsibility as well as spiritual fulfillment. In the classroom Woodyard is interested in enabling students both to come to a clearer understanding of their identity and to challenge the ways in which they have understood the world. As an academic advisor, he is committed to creating an environment for students in which they can explore why they are in a liberal arts institution and how they may relate that to a vocation and a meaningful life. Woodyard's scholarly interests in recent decades have been in collaborative work with a colleague in economics. Their most recent book relates religion and economics to ecological issues.
