Gill Report, May 2005

At every monthly faculty meeting during the school year, the dean of faculty presents brief overviews of recent publications and other achievements by the Mount Holyoke faculty. Here are excerpts from the April 2005 report of Penny Gill, acting dean of faculty:

Prizes and Publications:
Charlene Morrow, codirector of SummerMath and lecturer in psychology and education, and Jim Morrow, codirector of SummerMath and lecturer in mathematics, have received a grant of $5,000 from the Mathematical Association of America to support their work encouraging more young women to study mathematics. Congratulations on this continuing support for SummerMath.

Director of athletics Laurie Priest and her colleagues have received a two-year grant to support a minority intern in the athletic program from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. This is one of only 15 awards in the country this year. Like the Five College Fellowship and the Committee for a Significant Minority Presence, this internship program seeks to increase the pool of highly qualified young people of diverse backgrounds for careers in higher education.

Many Mount Holyoke faculty will be in Europe this summer, doing their research, checking out possible sites for students’ study abroad, and working in seminars. Ombretta Frau, assistant professor of Italian, has just received an NEH grant for a seminar on Italian fascism at the American Academy in Rome. DAAD is sponsoring a seminar in Germany on “Trends in Higher Education in Germany and Europe” this summer, and Eva Paus, economics professor and director of global initiatives, will be one of 20 seminar participants. And Donna Van Handle, senior lecturer in German and dean of international students, will participate in a special trans-Atlantic seminar on German children’s and youth literature in Bremen, sponsored by the government of the Federal Republic. She has also just been elected to the executive board of CALICO (Computer-Assisted Language and Instruction Consortium) for a three-year term.

Anthropology professor Andy Lass, as you know, has worked for many years to assist first the libraries of the Czech Republic and then libraries across Central and Eastern Europe, including Georgia. Much of that work has been supported by the Mellon Foundation. His recently published book, Union Catalogs at the Crossroad (Hamburg University Press), edited with Richard E. Quandt, includes chapters on the experiences of Eastern European, Baltic, and South African research libraries.

Irene Kaplan Leiwant Professor of Jewish Studies and chair of religion Larry Fine’s recent book, Physician of the Soul, Healer of the Cosmos, has received a 2004 Choice Outstanding Academic Titles Award from Choice magazine, a publication of the American Library Association.
