Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar Series

Interdisciplinary Studies graduate students pull together programs from different disciplines to create their own programs. This series is a presentation of research, and I find them quite interesting in many cases, as students make some constructions that you don’t typically find on campus. Here’s a good example and suitable, I think, given that we are in the middle of Lent.

Fresh installment at “Now you hear me…”

Another oops…
I once again forgot to mention that there’s a new podcast installment available at “Now you hear me…”

This one completes, perhaps, the string of items on the fences metaphor. If you’ve got two and a half minutes to spare, give it a listen.

From fences to copestone
Okay, one more kick at this metaphor. I could go on for days about it, but this podcast is all about nibbles, not about big bites. In this segment, I draw a connection between the fences metaphor and a company my wife and put together several years ago. This is our logo, and you can hear a brief explanation.
