Chris Mackowski, associate professor of journalism and mass communication at St. BonaventureUniversity, has co-authored three new Civil War books published in May 2013.
Two of the books, “A Season of Slaughter: The Battle of Spotsylvania Court House” and “The Last Days of Stonewall Jackson,” are part of the Emerging Civil War Series. They follow Mackowski’s first book in the series, “Simply Murder: The Battle of Fredericksburg,” released last December.
The third book released in May is a longer hardcover, “Chancellorsville’s Forgotten Front: The Battles of Second Fredericksburg and Salem Church.”
A St. Bonaventure University education professor has published a book about the techniques used by Native American and Canadian medicine men.
A faculty fellowship award allowed Mary Olufunmilayo Adekson, Ph.D., to study Native American and Canadian healers in her ongoing pursuit of investigating the influence of traditional healers on family and community.
The result is “Native American and Canadian medicine men, healers and helpers,” published by Lambert Academic Publishing. The book is available at https://www.morebooks.de (search for healers and helpers).
Neuroscience has revealed that leaders who can adapt best to complex and rapidly evolving situations have distinctive brain networks, according to a study published in the next Journal of Applied Psychology.
Dr. Pierre Balthazard, dean of St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business, is one of the paper’s co-authors.
Balthazard and colleagues from Wake Forest, Arizona State and the U.S. Army developed and tested the new model of leader complexity.
Findings showed that leaders who are more complex demonstrated greater adaptability when facing novel, ill-defined and changing leadership situations. Leader complexity was found to be enabled by both the mind — the complexity of leaders’ self-concepts — and the brain — the neuroscientific basis for complex leadership.
Dr. Chris Hill, assistant professor of mathematics at St. Bonaventure University, gave the banquet talk at the spring 2013 Seaway Section Meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, held April 19-20 at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
Hill’s talk, titled “The abc Conjecture and Beyond,” kicked off the conference, which was attended by more than 100 faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students.
John Mulryan has spent decades translating books that are centuries old, never knowing in the tedium of such meticulous work whether anyone would care to publish the culmination of his labor.
Ultimately, his painstaking efforts were rewarded, first with the 1,024-page English translation of Natale Conti’s “Mythologiae” in 2006, the most important mythography published during the Renaissance; and again last year with the publication of the 485-page translation of Vincenzo Cartari’s “Images of the Gods of the Ancients,” the first mythography written in Italian.
