Malone University faculty members are recipients of summer research grants which will be used as follows:
David Beer, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science, will travel to the archives at the University of Toronto where he will finish archival work on the Canadian classical historian Charles Norris Cochrane and plans to publish an edited volume of Cochrane's shorter writings.
Kyle Calderhead, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics, will continue with a project involving mathematics and visual art which involves placing points inside a cube to create different photographic images. A successful project would allow rewriting the code in order to make a stand-alone application for processing the images.
Jason Courter, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology, will continue research and writing to complete a chapter entitled "Optimizing Avian Conservations and Function in Agroecosystems using Growing Degree-days" to submit for publication in a competitive national science journal.
Eb de Oliveira, Ph.D., professor of psychology, will continue his ongoing research examining the moderation of maternal empathy in observed mother-child cooperative problem-solving. Preliminary results of the study were presented at the 15th Biennial Symposium in Brazil held in May 2014.
John Estes, Ph.D., assistant professor of English, will continue work-in progress pieces: a collection of short stories, tentatively titled Hovering: 100 Theological Fictions and a project translating the poems of early 20th century Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno.
Malcolm Gold, Ph.D., professor of sociology, is in the final stages of completing work which began in 2006 with the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) to research the experience of missionaries, church leaders and mission training institutions as well as individual members of a variety of congregations in relation to strategies, methods and conceptions of mobilization. A draft of the book, "Global Mobilization Research Project" and published by the WEA is anticipated for later this summer.
Karen Slovak, Ph.D., associate professor of social work, will analyze data and prepare a manuscript for publication on the attitudes, knowledge and practices from geriatric case managers in regard to suicide, and firearm assessment and intervention techniques being utilized with the elderly.
