Dr. Chris Dolan, chair of history, politics, & global studies, published “Holding Facebook accountable” on The Hill. Dolan’s opinion piece explored the company’s response to recent news that one of their partners, a data firm, had taken advantage of the data and privacy of more than 50 million users. His book, Obama and the Emergence of a Multipolar World: Redefining U.S. Foreign Policy, will be published by Rowan & Littlefield in 2018.

Dr. Mukunda M. Ghimire, visiting assistant professor of chemistry, co-authored “Mechanistic Investigations of Photo-induced Oxygenation of Ru(II) Bis-bipyridyl Flavonolate Complexes,” in Inorganic Chemistry, an American Chemical Society publication. Dr. Ghimire, with his co-authors from Baylor University, Stephen F. Austin State University, and University of North Texas concluded:
A series of Ru(II) bis-bipyridyl flavonolate complexes undergo oxidative cleavage of the Ru-bound flavonol dependent on both light and oxygen. The complexes’ structures, photophysical and electrochemical properties, as well as their reactivity with oxygen were investigated in detail. Two distinct reaction product mixtures from 1,2- and 1,3-additions of oxygen are produced by illumination into distinct excitation/emission manifolds. The two manifolds are attributed to tautomeric biradicals, which predict the observed reactivity patterns.
Dr. Thomas Dompier, associate professor of athletic training, co-authored “Extremity Musculoskeletal Injury Risk After Concussion Recovery in High School Athletes,” which was published in the Journal of Athletic Training in November. That same month, he provided three guest lectures on “Clinical Epidemiology and Evidence-Based Medicine for Public Health Research Methods”—via WebEx—to students at the University of South Carolina, School of Public Health.

Dr. Jonna-Lynn Knauer Mandelbaum’s Book Included on United Methodist Women’s Reading Program for 2018
Dr. Jonna-Lynn Knauer Mandelbaum ’69, nursing, was recently honored by being included on the United Methodist Women’s (UMW) Reading Program for 2018. Dr. Mandelbaum, who started The Almond Tree Scholarship at LVC last year, has authored several books, including Unspoken Farewell (Dog Ear Publishing, 2008), which made this year’s UMW prestigious list.
Inspired by Chloe McCarty ’18 and Noah Brady ’19, Dr. Gary Grieve-Carlson, professor of English, wrote “Telling the Truth about History: Tim O’Brien’s In the Lake of the Woods,” which was published in the most recent issue of the journal War, Literature & the Arts (Vol. 29, 2017), an online journal produced at the U.S. Air Force Academy. Dr. Grieve-Carlson’s work grew out of a First-Year Experience he taught in 2015 in which the class read O’Brien’s novel. McCarty and Brady’s essays and thoughtful questions prompted Dr. Grieve-Carlson to write this essay.
“The social functions of babbling: acoustic and contextual characteristics that facilitate maternal responsiveness,” co-authored by Dr. Rachel R. Albert, LVC assistant professor of psychology, and Dr. Jennifer A. Schwade and Dr. Michael H. Goldstein, co-directors of the Behavioral Analysis of Beginning Years (B.A.B.Y.) Laboratory at Cornell University, was published in Development Science, a leading journal in developmental psychology.
By having mothers react to audio-visual examples of babies babbling, the authors determined that vocal maturity and infant gaze influence how mothers perceive and respond to infant vocalizations. The researchers conclude that “An important function of prelinguistic vocalizing may be to elicit parental behavior in ways that facilitate the infant’s own learning about speech and language.”
LVC is well known for student-faculty collaborations that lead to presentations and publications. However, two current students – Paige Bryson (English and business administration) and Rachael Speck (English) – took the next step by writing “Navigating Undergraduate Publications,” which was recently published on “Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies.” The writers created a list of college literary journals, including LVC’s own Green Blotter, that welcome student submissions. Bryson is managing editor for Green Blotter, and Speck is an assistant poetry editor for the long-running annual publication.
Dr. Georgios A. Stylianides, associate professor of exercise science, co-authored a paper with colleagues from Qatar and France that was published in “Frontiers in Neuroscience.” He conducted the research on Session–RPE Method for Training Load Monitoring: Validity, Ecological Usefulness, and Influencing Factors with colleagues from Qatar University, University of Lyon, FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence, and Qatar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital.
