Dr. Giesberg selected as speaker for Spring 2014 Lecture Series

Dr. Giesberg selected as 2014 speaker

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Judith Giesberg has just been selected as the Spring 2014 speaker for the The Steven and Janice Brose Distinguished Lecture Series in the Civil War Era at Penn State University.

Judy will deliver three lectures dealing with the impact of the Civil War on families and changing ideas of childhood in America. The series, titled The Civil War’s Lost Boys and Girls combines Judy’s research specialties in Civil War era history and the history of childhood in America. As many of you know, Judy teaches a popular and innovative course, which she developed at Villanova, on the history of childhood in America.

The revised lectures will be published by the University of North Carolina Press.

The Brose series is sponsored by the Richards Center for Civil War Era History at Penn State and was created through an endowment from Steven and Janice Brose in 1998.

Congratulations Judy!!!

College Offers Access to Mideastwire.com

The College of Liberal Arts and Science is pleased to offer to its students, faculty, and staff access to Mideastwire.com, an Internet-based news service that employs a team of translators from around the region to gather important stories from and about the Middle East. Its core product is a daily e-mail newsletter to English speaking subscribers that aggregates key English language stories about the Middle East. The majority of English speaking business-persons, students and journalists who have an interest in the affairs of this region are largely unaware of what the Middle East media is covering.  Mideastwire.com aims to close this gap by offering a daily e-mail newsletter of concise, translated briefs covering some of the key political, cultural, economic, and opinion pieces appearing in the media of the 22 Arab countries, Iran, and the Arab Diaspora.  For more information, please contact Mideastwire.com. To receive the daily email newsletter in English, please send an e-mail to this address — info@mideastwire.com — for immediate activation.
