The Experience Of “Bottoming”: Considerations For Identity And Learning, Craig M. Mcgill, Joshua Collins

South Florida Education Research Conference

Bottoms—Gay men who prefer to be penetrated, sexually—are more stigmatized than other gay men, and may develop and experience identities differently than other gay, bisexual, or heterosexual men. This paper explores intrinsic dispositions and extrinsic motivations that may lead bottoms to perform and embody psychosocial and sexual identities in intimate, interpersonal, and social contexts.

Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities Conference Proceedings

In May 2013 the Center for Research Design and Entrepreneurship received a commission from the company Maersk Oil Qatar to design a brochure about the proper installation and use of child car seats. The team tasked with creating the brochure began with a question: how can design change peoples’ behavior? This question was the first step toward the quick evolution and exponential expansion of the project from a single brochure on child car seats to a nation-wide campaign and social movement encompassing all aspects of road safety.

In Qatar traffic accidents account for one out of every eight deaths, and ...

Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture: "Raising Spirits: Victorian Ghost Stories", Lynn Parker Oct 2014

Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture: "Raising Spirits: Victorian Ghost Stories", Lynn Parker

Lyceum Lecture Series

In addition to being "great reads" that still frighten us today, Victorian ghost stories and supernatural literature reflect the growing apprehension that Victorians felt in response to rapidly shifting cultural boundaries, such as changes in religion, new scientific theories, and advancing technology. Examining the Victorian fascination with the spectral encourages us to consider the ways in which our contemporary culture's obsession with the supernatural may mark a similar discomfort with fast-paced social change.

Presented by Dr. Lynn Parker, Professor, English Department, Framingham State University.

The Best Laid Plans Of Librarians And Faculty: Information Literacy Instruction In A General Education Literature Course, Difficulties And Successes, Kelly Diamond, Lisa Weihman

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Members of this panel (a librarian and faculty member) began collaborating to create information literacy sessions for English 272: Modernist Literature. Assuming that students enrolled would be English majors or similar, we created sessions and assignments focused on higher-order research skills, such as working with and analyzing primary sources.

However, this section of English 272 fulfilled a General Education Curriculum (GEC) requirement. At our institution, students take 43 credit hours to fulfill GEC requirements, courses from a broad range of disciplines. Unfortunately, many students enroll in GEC courses for which they are under-prepared, have no personal interest, and are not ...

Beyond The Institution: Creating An Independent Creative Life Without Academia, Edward C. Bernstein Sep 2014

Beyond The Institution: Creating An Independent Creative Life Without Academia, Edward C. Bernstein

The Mid-America Print Council Conference

Having just retired in August 2013 as Head of Printmaking , School of Fine Arts, Indiana University, Bloomington, I have had the privilege of IU’s providing me with a studio for 22 years. More importantly, I have had many opportunities to compete for institutional grants for creative research and travel, including trips to our professional conferences. I was able to make really innovative work and take risks that otherwise might have been very difficult. I am now transitioning to my own recently acquired raw studio space beginning a new chapter in my life without institutional support.
