Arts and Sciences Research Day set Oct. 20

The Idaho State University College of Arts and Sciences will hold its second annual Arts and Sciences Research Day from 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 20 in Goranson Hall located on the lower level of the Fine Arts Building on the ISU Pocatello campus.

The event has been designed to provide faculty of the other ISU colleges, as well as the public, a better idea of the variety of research and creative activity being undertaken by faculty within the College of Arts and Science. That college has teamed with the Office of Research to create an interesting and informative free event featuring six brief faculty presentations.

Presentations planned include:

• Dr. David Adler, political science, "George Bush, Presidential Power, and the Constitution."

• Dr. Curt Anderson, biological sciences, "The Neuronal Organization of Coordinated Movement: the Beauty, Diversity and Complexity of the Brain."

• Melanie Kloetzel, theatre and dance, and Dr. John Masserini, music, "Icarus Fried," a presentation featuring choreography by Kloetzel and the music "Wings" by Joan Tower.

• Dr. Linda Leeuwrik, art and pre-architecture, "Material Matters: Observations on the Relationship between Painting and Writing in the Work of Marc and Kandinsky."

• Dr. Shannon Lynch, psychology, "A Study of Trauma Exposure and Treatment Needs at the Pocatello Women's Correctional Center."

• Dr. Rob Van Kirk, mathematics, "Effect of Stream Flow Regimes on Success of Introduced Trout in Displacing Native Cutthroat Trout in the Upper Snake River Basin."

A reception in the Davis Gallery will follow the presentations.
