Dr. Gill to co-chair session at archaeology conference

Dr. Alyson Gill, Art History, will be co-chairing a session at the Computer Applications in Archaeology 2007 "Layers of Perception" conference in Berlin, April 2-6. The conference is under the auspices of the German minister of foreign affairs and is organized by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), the Centre of the Ancient World, and the Staatliche Museum. Gill's session is titled "Visualizing Ancient Spaces: The Impact of Three-Dimensional Virtual Reconstructions on Research and Pedagogy," which developed from a recent collaboration between Coastal Carolina University and ASU called Ashes2Art.

Dr. Horner publishes case study on Hard Rock Cafe
Dr. Stephen V. Horner, Management and Marketing, recently published a case study in the journal The Global Enterprise: Entrepreneurship and Value Creation. The case study, "Entrepreneurship in the Experience Economy: The Evolution of the Hard Rock Cafe," co-authored by Todd Chiles of the University of Missouri-Columbia and Long Lam of the University of Macau, traces the development and growth of the Hard Rock Cafe from the time of its founding in 1971 by two American expatriates in London. The case applies chiefly to the study of entrepreneurship and strategic management and is particularly topical in light of the restaurant chain's recent acquisition by the Seminole Tribe of Florida for $965 million.
