Faculty Present New Projects for CAS Scholarship Series

The final Spring 2012 session of the College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Series (CASSS) featured an interdisciplinary panel on March 15, presented by professors Anthony DiMatteo (English), John Hanc (communication arts), Tom Jacobs (English), Dina Karafantis (behavioral sciences), and Rozina Vavetsi (graphic design). Among the presentations was Vavetsi's research on  "Graphic Design Undercover".  

Presentations

  • Anthony DiMatteo, professor of English, presented "A Black Matter For the King: From Virgil's Baldric to Shakespeare's Gage." His research explores how Shakespeare's epic portrait of England's warrior-saint Henry V owes much to Virgil's divided view of heroism.
  • John Hanc, associate professor of communication arts, discussed his book, Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life, a collaboration with Harvard psychiatrist Paul Hammerness, M.D., and Margaret Moore, director of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital and the founder and CEO of Wellcoaches Corporation. The book blends the latest neuroscience with self-help tips for how to stay better focused and on task in an age of distraction.
  • Tom Jacobs, assistant professor of English, discussed Modernist author Richard Wright's "Fugitive Collector and the Reinvention of Everyday Life."
  • Dina Karafantis, assistant professor of behavioral sciences, discussed "Seeing Eye to Eye: The Effect of Phenotypic Features on Trait Judgments." Her research examines whether phenotypic features, such as eye shape, increase the level of stereotyping towards Asians for participants induced with a colorblind ideology. This ideology posits that group information (i.e., race, ethnicity, and gender) is irrelevant and should be disregarded or minimized to promote social tolerance.
  • Rozina Vavetsi, associate professor of graphic design, presented "Graphic Design Undercover," exploring the vast, dimly-lit, and sometimes ignored manifestations of graphic design, with particular emphasis on information design.
