Faculty News

A paper entitled, “The Erosion of Ethical Standards in Government: Is What It Takes To Get Elected the Root of the Problem?” that Dan Lee was invited to present at a symposium at Oxford University last summer has been accepted for publication in Forum on Public Policy, a peer-reviewed international journal.

On 14 October Scott R. Irelan chaired a panel entitled Exploring Nationhood through Dramatic Literature and Performance, 1860-1886 at the American Studies Association meeting in Philadelphia. He also presented the paper, “Lincoln the Yankee Goon: A Wartime Public Image in Copperhead and Southern Drama”. The University of Missouri Press has commissioned a book proposal based on both the paper and the panel. The following week on 19 October he moderated the presentation Women, Peace and Justice on Broadway at the Fifth International Peace History Conference in Lakewood NJ. At the close of the month his performance review “Othello’s Passion: A Kabuki Play” was published in Theatre Journal 59:3.

Anette Ejsing's teaching module contribution to the "Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones" teaching workshop, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, May, 2007, is now published online as a teaching resource. The workshop was arranged by The University of Iowa Center for Human Rights, who continues to welcome contributions to their collection of teaching resources for the purpose of integrating instruction on sexual violence in conflict zones in course offerings relevant to that topic.
