Facultivities: Oxford honorees, writing assessment programs and medieval social boundaries
WVU Tech’s faculty members are dedicated to the advancement of the fields they teach. Outside of the classroom they’re researchers, writers, presenters, go-to experts and road warriors who share their passion for learning with the world.
Here’s what our faculty members have been up to:
Dr. Richard Squire (Chemistry) is writing an article for a Festschrift (a book of original articles) to honor Oxford University Professor Emeritus Norman H. March. Dr. Squire's article is entitled, "Do Symmetry-Breaking Transitions in Photosynthetic Light Harvesting Complexes Form a Kibble-Zurek Model (KZM) Topological Defect?"
Drs. Rachel Bragg and Cortney Barko (English) co-presented their talk, “Assessment Island in a STEM Sea: The Development of a Formal Writing Assessment Program,” at the 2017 College English Association 48th Annual Conference in Hilton Head, North Carolina.
Dr. Deborah Chun (Mathematics) had her article, “Inductive tools for connected delta-matroids and multimatroids,” published in the European Journal of Combinatorics.
Dr. Melissa Sartore (History) presented her paper, “Back From Across the Border: Inlawing the Outlaw and Defining Social and Political Boundaries,” at the 2017 Sewanee Medieval Colloquium at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
