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.

NYIT Professor Supports Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Crisis Relief

Tsuru Project

Yuko Oda, assistant professor of fine arts and founding organizer of NYIT's "We Are One" art fundraiser for Japan earthquake and nuclear crisis relief, participated in memorial ceremonies, March 10-11 in New York City. The events commemorated the one-year anniversary of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that left nearly 20,000 people dead and caused a nuclear radiation leak. Pictured are volunteers at a March 11 event organized by the Tsuru Project at McCarren Park in Brooklyn, where people gathered to make origami cranes to send prayers to Japan. The Tsuru Project is a group of New York-based Japanese artists supporting relief efforts through creative, educational workshops.

Oda, who raised more than $21,000 last year, thanks in large part to the generosity of the NYIT community, is planning another "We Are One" art benefit in the coming months.

Interdisciplinary Faculty Panel Presents Research at CAS Scholarship Series

An interdisciplinary panel of faculty members will present their research at the next session of the ongoing College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Series on Tuesday, March 13. Participants include Susana Case, professor of behavioral sciences; Ana Petrovic (pictured at right), assistant professor of life sciences; and Patty K. Wongpakdee, assistant professor of fine arts. Discussion will range from Case's poetry collection, to Petrovic's research on molecular chirality, to Wongpakdee's insight on resurfacing graphics, which explores unconventional designs and how they stimulate viewers beyond paper's passive surface.

Excerpt of Ana Petrovic's technical research:

The transfer of chirality from a guest molecule to an achiral host is of a significant interest, especially when upon chiral induction the response of the complex can report the guest’s absolute configuration (AC). The tweezer methodology relies on a stereo-differentiating host/guest complexation between bis-porphyrin tweezer and chiral substrate containing two sites of coordination. This typically results in an exciton-split circular dichroism (CD) signal, diagnostic of guest’s AC.

Recently, it was shown that the molecular modeling predictions of a preferred interporphyrin helicity of the complex can assist the correlation between the experimental CD with the AC. The presentation will focus on scope of application of a novel, sterically encumbered, melamine based Zn-porphyrin tweezer.

Scholars Address Social Impact of Modernism at NYIT Conference

Modernist visual art, literature, society, and politics of New York shaped the discussion of nearly 100 scholars, who attended NYIT's day-long interdisciplinary conference on March 2 at the Manhattan campus. The conference, organized by faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences, featured presentations on topics ranging from the global city to how economics and class issues from the Modernist period of the early 1900s have influenced current social movements such as Occupy Wall Street.   Pictured from left to right: Lori Jirousek-Falls, Ph.D., associate professor of English, NYIT-MA; Tom Jacobs, Ph.D., assistant professor of English, NYIT-OW;  Jonathan Goldman, Ph.D., assistant professor of English, NYIT-MA;  Marshall Berman, distinguished professor of political science, City College of NY; and Bryan Waterman, Ph.D., professor at NYU.

Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World

A film reported and narrated by Mike Chinoy

President Richard Nixon's visit to China in February 1972 changed the course of history, reshaping the global balance of power and opening the door to the establishment of relations between the People's Republic and the United States.

It was also a milestone in the history of American journalism. Since the communist revolution of 1949, Beijing had barred virtually all American reporters from China. For the Nixon trip, however, the Chinese agreed to accept nearly 100 journalists, and to allow the most dramatic events - Nixon's arrival in Beijing, Premier Zhou Enlai's welcoming banquet, visits to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City - to be televised live.

Join Mike Chinoy, senior fellow at the University of Southern California's U.S.-China Institute and former CNN senior Asia correspondent and Beijing bureau chief, for a showing of Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World. The documentary offers a fascinating and previously untold perspective on one of the most important historical moments of the 20th century. Mr. Chinoy, who reports and narrates the film, will discuss it with National Committee President Steve Orlins.

Co-hosted by the College of Arts and Sciences of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), the program will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8.

Patty Wongpakdee - CAS Scholarship Series

Patty Wongpakdee's "Resurfacing Graphics" is a topic that explores unconventional designs, and stimulates the viewer to experience the graphics beyond the paper’s passive surface. It will relieve the viewer from the conventionality of the printed graphics we are bombarded with everyday. Designers, illustrators and artists will apply graphics in a unique manner that allows tactile interaction. While exploring surfaces and continuing to communicate succinctly and with impact, they are also having a positive effect on the environment. Wongpakdee examines how visual communicators are Resurfacing Graphics by transmitting their visual language using atypical surfaces and materials such as textile, wood, ceramics and even water to expand their creative breadth and continue the perpetual exploration for new ways to make a mark.
