first_imgHenry Louis Gates Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and director of Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, has announced the appointment of 14 new fellows for fall 2010.“The fellows program is the jewel in the crown of the Du Bois Institute, and this fall’s fellows will be key contributors both to the field of African and African American Studies in general and to the Harvard community in particular,” said Gates. “We have a number of ‘firsts’ this year, including our first Hiphop Archive fellow and our first teaching fellows in the Department of African and African American Studies. These institutional innovations will make the fellowship program stronger than ever.”Du Bois Fellows present their work in a weekly colloquium series, held at noon on Wednesdays in the Barker Center at 12 Quincy St., and lead workshops on critical areas in African and African-American research that are offered to selected scholars, sister research institutes, and by invitation. This fall, workshops will be offered on “Transatlantic Black Performance in Literary Theory,” “African American Theater and the ‘Self,’” and “Specters of Marxism.” Du Bois Fellows also participate in the varied activities of the Institute, including public conferences and major lecture series (W.E.B. Du Bois Lectures, Nathan I. Huggins Lectures, Alain Leroy Locke Lectures, and McMillan-Stewart Lectures).This year’s Du Bois Fellows are David Bindman, Todd Carmody, Adrienne L. Childs, Grey Gundaker, Meagan Healey, Theodore Miller, Jonathan Munby, Sophie Oldfield, Ronald K. Richardson, Mark Solomon, Nirvana Tanoukhi, Lisa Thompson, Omar Wasow, and Louis Wilson.To read full biographies and learn more about the fellows’ research, visit the Du Bois Institute’s website.last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Jess WinansAfter losing several friends while serving in Afghanistan, former U.S. Marine and current Adelphi University student Julian McBride turned to art to help deal with his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).McBride’s oil paintings were inspired by scenes he witnessed on the frontlines. His works were displayed as part of an exhibit called “The Horrors of War” at Adelphi last fall and following the positive response he received, he started sharing his work through public talks featuring PowerPoint slides of his paintings, including one upcoming on April 19 at Lawrence Middle School.“I lost six of my friends during my time overseas,” said the 25-year-old Freeport resident. “It hit me from there—nothing is guaranteed. One day I was hanging with my friends playing golf and the next they were killed by explosive devices.”McBride had never painted until he returned from his deployment. After enrolling in Adelphi in 2013 to study criminal justice, forensics and anthropology, he took a technical drawing in archaeology course, where he learned how to illustrate corpses and decomposed bodies.With his newly acquired art skills, he began painting what was going on inside his head. McBride said he is haunted by his combat experience. But painting helps him cope with his trauma better than any other form of therapy, he discovered.McBride isn’t the only one who benefits. His professors say his work has helped teach the community about the impact of the war.“He’s an exceptional young man who strives to be the most genuine and thoughtful person he can be,” said Stephanie Lake, director of Adelphi’s criminal justice program. “I have no doubt he will end up being incredibly successful in whatever he does.”Julian McBride will be exhibiting “The Horrors of War” at Lawrence Middle School on April 19. Lawrence Middle School at Broadway Campus is located at 195 Broadway, in Lawrence, NY. 516-295-7000 For more information, visit lawrencemiddleschool.lawrence.orglast_img read more

Although financial products and services are important to consumers and definitely have emotional impact, they are not typically seen as “sexy” items which people wish to purchase.Your bank or credit union should take an honest look at the way in which consumers perceive it and answer the question, honestly – “is visiting us a pain?” If consumers, already halfway dreading going to the bank or credit union actually do have a negative experience there, it’s bad for your brand and your bottom line.Examine the consumer visit from their point of view. Start with the basics. Is your facility easy to see from the road? Is it attractive (for example, landscaping, paint, etc.)? Once inside, how quickly are your consumers greeted? Do you have a queue system and, if so, does it ask consumers to take it upon themselves to sign in or does your staff take the initiative and handle that for them?Digging deeper, you should next examine subsequent steps in a typical consumer interaction. How long is the average wait time? Do you provide some type of beverage (water, coffee, etc.)? Once a consumer is seated with a representative, is that person skilled and trained to ask questions or are they simply an order-taker with no real drive? continue reading »last_img read more


first_imgA group of foreign experts in eco-tourism spent six days in Croatia, visiting Split first, and then the goal of their arrival – the Lastovo Islands Nature Park. The purpose of their visit was to try the package “Lastovo – positively wild”, the first eco-tourist offer of this park, which was designed by the park staff in cooperation with the local population and the world organization for nature protection WWF.On the first day of their stay in Croatia, last Monday, the experts gathered in Split and first participated in a workshop on the ecological footprint in tourism, where they were joined by colleagues from the Kornati National Park, who also participate in the DestiMED project. The next day they visited Split and after that, only in the evening, they reached Lastovo. “The goal of tourism that we want to develop is not only profit, but also the well-being of the local community, preservation of identity, culture and tradition, as well as protection of natural resources. The eco-tourism offer must be a departure from mass tourism. Seven experts who spent last week in our park got acquainted with our nature, were delighted with the activities, cultural customs and offer. “, points out Bruna Đuković from the Lastovo Islands Nature Park, explaining how some of them tried diving for the first time, while others took oars in their hands for the first time and kayaked around the shores of Lastovo.”Although we will receive the real report only later, what we learned by talking to the experts is that our package is too intensive for them in terms of activities carried out. This information is extremely important to us because we will adjust this offer according to it”, Explains Mosor Prvan from WWF Adria, project manager of DestiMED within which this tourist offer was developed.The experts spent most of their time with nature conservationists and the local community, housed in the camp. They participated in making souvenirs and visited the local winery, and complained about too much riding and too little cycling. “We focused on quantity, we wanted them to experience as much as possible, and that was obviously the wrong decision. We know for the future. We in the Nature Park are extremely satisfied, but we understand that much more attention needs to be paid to the organization of such an offer. The fact that 12 local stakeholders are involved in Local cluster in ecotourism participating in this offer for us is a confirmation that we are on the right track“Concludes Bruno. The second group of experts will arrive in Lastovo in the spring, and they will be greeted by a “refreshed” tour “Lastovo – positively wild”. It will last five days, will not include a tour of Split, but will spend its time in better quality, exploring local customs and participating in the production of local products.The test in the Lastovo Islands Nature Park is the first of seven pilot tests to be held this fall in protected areas in six Mediterranean countries covered by the DestiMED project, implemented in Croatia by WWF Adria and funded by the EU Interreg Mediterranean Program. It is based on the success of the MEET (Mediterranean Ecotourism Experience) network, a non-profit destination management organization, which aims to further develop and promote a high quality portfolio of ecotourism experiences in the region’s protected areas.last_img read more
