Women’s History Month Colloquium 2021: A virtual memory book

Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area is usually the venue for the annual Women’s History Month Colloquium (from Gender Studies and other sponsors)  and the Library shares photos of those events. With this year’s virtual Colloquium, Marsha Miller, Research and Instruction Librarian and member of the Library’s Marketing team, was able to attend all but one of the events and did screen-grabs to represent and record the event for posterity. Those, along with some of the graphic announcements, are shared here. Don’t forget to check out the 4 blog entries on Women and American Health Policy.

The Bakerman Graduate winner is William Anastasiadis with his paper, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Preschool-Aged Children: A Critical Review from PSY-668: Advanced Psychopathology, nominated by Jennifer Schriver.

The Bakerman Undergraduate winner  is Abby Hemmen with her paper “Social Media’s Effect on Voting” from PSCI 340, Political Inquiry, nominated by Matthew Bergbower.

Feb. 11: Darwin Day Speaker Celebrates Genetics & Guppies

Dr. Bleakley is Chair of the Biology Department at Stonehill College.

Bleakley comes to Stonehill from Smith College where she served as a lecturer in genetics (2009-10). Prior to that, she was a National Science Foundation (NSF) international research fellow based jointly at the Centre for Ecology and Conservation at University of Exeter, Cornwall and Northern Arizona University. Her teaching appointments have included stints at the University of Virginia, Indiana University, and the University of Arizona.
In 2007, Bleakley received the William J. Rowland Mentor of the Year and Outstanding Associate Instructor of the Year Awards at Indiana University. Bleakley’s research focuses on the evolutionary genetics of social behavior. She uses inbred and wild lines of guppies to explore how the genetic component of the social environment influences antipredator behavior and cooperation. She also uses invertebrates to understand the genetics of cannibalism and how social selection acts on cannibalism. She is planning projects exploring how genetic variation interacts with social organization to influence behavior. These projects were supported by the National Science Foundation and Animal Behavior Society.
