Paul J. Arciero, professor of health and human physiological sciences, was interviewed on “The Morning Beat with AJ and Mikalah,” where he discussed the best time of day to exercise based on gender.  

A book by Barbara Black, professor of English, “Hotel London: How Commercial Hospitality Shaped a Nation and Its Stories (Ohio State University Press, 2019) was recently honored at the Victorian Society in America's awards ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio. Black's book was a 2020 award winner, but the Society could not meet in person until this year due to the pandemic.

Joseph Cermatori, associate professor of English, has received news that his book, “Baroque Modernity: An Aesthetics of Theater” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2021) is a finalist for both the Modernist Studies Association's 2022 First Book Prize and the American Society for Theatre Research's Barnard Hewitt Award. The latter is awarded yearly "to the best book in 'theatre history or cognate disciplines' published during the previous calendar year." 

Jenny H. Day, associate professor of history, recently published a research article, “From envoy journals to legation reports: regulating knowledge of the world in late imperial and modern China,” in Journal of Modern Chinese History.

Catherine J. Golden, professor of English, has co-authored a paper with Pam Golden entitled "Wish Leaves," published in the October issue of SchoolArts Magazine. The article is about how Katherine Applegate's book “Wishtree” inspired two community-wide collaborations — one virtual through Skidmore and the Saratoga Springs Public Library and another in person at the South Shore Charter Public School in Norwell, Massachusetts —to envision a kinder, safer world. Students who served as leaders in the Saratoga Springs program include Alice Condry-Power '24, Chloe Hanrahan '24, Emilka Jansen '24, Sylvie Novak '24, Kari Stein '24, Dani Wood '24, and recent graduates Edie Parsons '21, Quinn Campbell '21, and Sophia Spellman '22.

Maggie Greaves, associate professor of English, and Rebecca McNamara, associate curator at the Tang Teaching Museum, appeared on WAMC's Roundtable show to talk about the new exhibition “Parallax: Framing the Cosmos.” They are co-curators of the exhibition, along with Dayton Director Ian Berry.
