Joan DelFattore (English)

​The Healer Within: Psychological Research on the Use of Writing to Relieve Stress

What is reflective writing? What do we know, and what do we not yet know, about how it can help to pull the themes of one's life together, reduce stress, and improve the quality of life?

John Jungck (Biological Sciences and Mathematics)

​Moving Beyond "Two Cultures"

Professor Jungck will address the classic division between STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and the arts and humanities and how we might build a "third culture." After reviewing team-taught courses involving artists, art historians, anthropologists, poets, playwrights, political scientists, etc. with a biologist-mathematician, Professor Jungck will argue for the importance of interdisciplinary scholarship that is mutually informed by arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences.

Raymond Callahan (History)

​Why Study History?

The world has changed dramatically in the last 50 years.  The pace of change seems to accelerate geometrically.  Does it matter any longer as we try to navigate the situation in which we now find ourselves what the Romans did?  Or why the Spanish Armada failed?  Perhaps it still does.  Decisions are still made by people  and the dilemmas they face while  doing so--about power, responsibility, judgement and the direction of societies and states--remain remarkably constant over time.  History illuminates this constant in human affairs--if deciders are aware of it.
