Dr. Fowler co-authors paper, lectures at Kuwait university
Dr. Gil Fowler, Journalism and The Honors College, has co-authored a paper with Dr. Hesham Mesbah of Kuwait University and Dr. Masoud Abdul Raheem of Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) in Kuwait. The paper, "Media Use and Public Perception: How Kuwaitis View Aspects of Globalization," appeared in the latest issue of the Journal of Arts and Human Sciences in Menya University, Egypt. The paper investigated media use patterns of 414 Kuwaitis and how attitudes towards globalization and Americanization were formed. While in Kuwait, Dr. Fowler also lectured at GUST.

Dr. Johnson presents paper at colloquium
Dr. Warren Johnson, French, presented a paper, "Comic Voices," at the Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium in Mobile, Ala. in October. Johnson's paper dealt with how traces of orality transformed late nineteenth-century French comic short fiction, introducing a narrative hybridity and moral ambiguity.


Dr. Jones co-authors journal article on views of schools
Dr. Craig H. Jones, Psychology and Counseling, co-authored an article published in the International Electric Journal for Leadership in Education with Dr. John Slate of Sam Houston State. The article, "Mexican Parents' and Teachers' Views of Effective Elementary Schools," reports the results of a study comparing the perceptions of parents and teachers in Juarez, Mexico, on what is required for effective elementary schools.

Athletics will give tribute to Indian Family
During halftime of the ASU football game with North Texas Thursday evening, the ASU Athletics Department will conduct a special salute to ASU's long-time mascot, the Indian Family. The salute will pay tribute to an integral part of ASUís history, as the Indian Family will make its final appearance at Indian Stadium as the universityís official mascot. ASU will continue to use the Indians nickname and Indian Family mascot throughout the 2007-08 year, but will hold a retirement ceremony this spring at a basketball game. The game will be televised by ESPN Regional.

PRSSA presents Potluck at the Pavilion

Archaeologist to discuss pottery of St. Francis river basin
Dr. Claudine Payne, Arkansas Archeological Survey, will discuss the Nodena art style of  Pre-Columbian eastern Arkansas pottery at a lecture hosted by the Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 7 p.m., in the ASU Museum, Room 180. The eastern Arkansas pottery deserves the designation Pre-Columbian Art, although the term "Nodena" has historical precedence in this region. Dr. Payne will explore this style of art and compare it to other art styles of the era, as well as consider its artists, audiences, media, techniques, and ways in which the style reflected and imitated the natural world of Arkansas between 1200-1600 AD. For details, contact Dr. Julie Morrow, station archaeologist, ASU.
