News & Notes – Dec. 6

— Hilbert’s Director of Multicultural Affairs & Social Justice Initiatives, Ahyana King, was a presenter at the National Conference on Student Leadership in Orlando.  Her presentation was titled: Launching Leading Ladies. Below is a description of her presentation.

While more women attend college than ever before, and women make up more than 51 percent of the U.S. population, women are still struggling to launch into roles of leadership on campus and in their post-collegiate professional lives. This workshop reveals ways to create campus environments that lay the foundation for launching females into leadership roles. Topics include mentoring and sponsoring, involving and supporting alumni, women-centered work and conversations from women’s history month, as well as supporting students as they overcome the discrimination that often comes with being a woman who desires to lead.

—  Professor of Political Science Dr. Andrew Kolin’s new book “Political Economy of Labor Repression”  has been nominated for two book awards.  The Philip Taft Labor History Book Award, which is offered by the International Labor Research School at Cornell University, in cooperation with the Labor and Working Class History Association.  The second nomination is for the Lemkin Book Award sponsored by Notre Dame University.

— Hilbert professor, Dr. Megan Witzleben, recently moderated a panel on Social Architecture: Forming Victorian Life at the Social Victorians 2016 North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA) Conference in Phoenix.

— Hilbert English Professor Herb Kauderer recently had three book reviews published in Speculative Poetry Book Reviews on the SFPA website, and excerpted in Star*Line magazine.  His review of Sacrificial Nights by Bruce Boston & Alessandro Manzettti, and his review of What Strange Miracles by James Brush appear at http://sfpoetry.com/sl/slreviews.html , while his review of the Nostrovia! Winning Moon Facts by Bob Schofield appears at http://sfpoetry.com/sl/reviews/15reviews.html.

Professor Kauderer had two poems appear in the British magazine BSFA Focus #66 for Summer 2016 and actually published October 27.  Apparently Britain has a more interesting calendar than the US.  The poems are “All the Way Down” and “after the cancer”.  The first poem is a reprint from professor Kauderer’s first collection of poetry Olives: A Jar Full of Small Pokes published in print in October 1995, and as an ebook in October 2015.
