Williams Lecture to Come to Keene

From Peggy Walsh, Sociology:

KSC’s Sociology and Anthropology Department is one of two regional programs selected by the Eastern Sociological Society (ESS) to host this year’s distinguished Robin L. Williams, Jr. Lecturer. Dr. Mark Jacobs, of George Mason University, will visit campus October 2-3, 2011 to deliver a lecture entitled, “Impression Management or Bad Faith? The Full Dimensions of Moral Evasion in the Financial Crisis.” This event will be free and open to the public.

Dr. Jacobs will also meet with students, faculty, and members of Alpha Kappa Delta, the International Honor Society for Sociology. Prof. Margaret Walsh, who submitted the application, would like to thank the ESS for generously awarding funding for this event. More information can be found at the ESS’s Williams Lecture site.

Portrait Exhibit comes to the Thorne Friday

From Jackie Hooper, Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery:

Portraits and other figurative works in the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery collection will be displayed Friday, June 3 through Sunday, July 24. The “Figuratively Speaking” exhibit includes paintings, prints, and photographs by Corneille, Francisco Goya, Alexander James, Rockwell Kent, Robert Mapplethorpe, Fritz Scholder, and others.

Exhibit curator Stephen J. Lucey, art history, drew works from the Thorne’s permanent collection.

“Figuratively Speaking” will reopen September 2 to October 2, to coincide with the opening of “Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity,” an exhibit of paintings, prints, photographs, and video which explores American self image.

The gallery is open during June and July from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It is closed Monday and Tuesday.

For more information on the Thorne and the “Figuratively Speaking” exhibit, see the full release on the Keene State news site.

  • The KSC Honors Program (directed by Peggy Walsh) received a grant from the National Collegiate Honors Council for the project “WeReaders: Connecting Kids and Kindles.”  This innovative project is a new e-reading partnership between the Honors Living/Learning Residence Hall and middle school students enrolled in an afternoon enrichment program. The program is designed to promote the pleasure of reading and life-long learning using the novelty and ease of e-reader technology. As part of the program, college and middle school students will participate in book discussion meetings which will take place in the new Honors Program space, with special events held in the student center, library, and residences.
Tech Tip of the Week: _GAL or _Events?

From the IT Group:

When there is an exciting event happening at Keene State College, your first thought is to share it with the campus community. Your first instinct is to send an e-mail addressed to the Global Address List, also known as the GAL. However, unless your message meets very specific criteria as a “broadcast” e-mail, this vehicle is not your best choice. To share your event information, the ideal distribution list to use is the KSC “_Events” list. You can locate this list in Outlook’s Global Address List and it is identified as “_Events”.

This list is ideal because the members of this list have remained subscribed to it and welcome information regarding upcoming events on campus. It should be used in place of campus-wide mail (_GAL) when communicating upcoming events. The GAL mailings are reserved for communication that are crisis/urgent announcements, logistics announcements (construction closures, traffic routing), major news (Presidential visit), major policy and procedural changes that must be communicated quickly, financial and administrative deadlines, registration information and academic deadlines or communications from the University System of New Hampshire. This link to the “KSC Guidelines for Broadcast E-mail” will provide you with more information.

So, before you use the _GAL to share your event with campus, remember to select _Events instead.

If you have any questions regarding this or any other technology issue, please feel free to contact the HelpDesk at 358-2532, e-mail helpdesk@keene.edu or stop by our office on the 2nd floor of Elliot Hall.
