Dr. Gabriela McEvoy’s recent book, La Experiencia Invisible: Immigrantes Irlandeses en el Perú (The Invisible Experience: Irish Immigrants in Peru), was reviewed by José Manuel Carrasco-Weston, a research assistant at the Research Center of the Universidad del Pacífico (Lima, Peru), for ABEI Journal, a Brazilian publication. Carrasco-Weston noted that McEvoy, chair of languages and associate professor of Spanish, wrote a book that is a “groundbreaking study on the Irish immigration in Peru,” and that it fills a “historical void” in the field.
International publisher Rowan and Littlefield recently released Obama and the Emergence of a Multipolar World: Redefining U.S. Policy, written by Dr. Chris Dolan, chair and professor of history, politics, & global studies. In the 258-page book, Dolan “argues that critical international and domestic crises, such as the U.S. war in Iraq and the Great Recession, forced President Barack Obama to readjust U.S. foreign policy after over 70 years of American hegemony and defending the global status quo,” according to the publisher.
Dr. Chris Dolan, chair of history, politics, and global studies, highlighted the history of concerns by U.S. presidents regarding Europe’s free-riding on the U.S. military within the NATO alliance. Noting President Trump’s recent concerns in “The long NATO gravy-train may soon be over for Europe,” Dolan noted, “he [President Trump] seemingly joins the ranks of nearly every U.S. administration since the organization was founded.” Dr. Dolan’s book, Obama and the Emergence of a Multipolar World Order: Redefining U.S. Foreign Policy, was published by Rowan and Littlefield in October 2018.
Dr. Gabriela McEvoy, chair of languages and associate professor of Spanish, recently published “La Experiencia Invisible. Inmigrantes Irlandeses en el Perú” (The Invisible Experience. Irish Immigrants in Peru), and it was the #1 seller at the Fondo Editorial de la Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM) stand at the International Book Fair in Peru. The book is based on Dr. McEvoy’s long-term research into the fragmented history of the Irish emigration to Peru and was published by Fondo Editorial UNMSM.
Dr. Rebecca Urban, associate professor of biology and director of environmental science, and collaborators from 22 primarily undergraduate institutions recently published a paper, “Effects of urbanization on the population structure of freshwater turtles across the United States” in the journal Conservation Biology. Urban’s 2012 and 2013 Environmental Science (BIO 103) and Ecology (BIO 312) classes helped collect data that were used in the article co-written by Professor Urban. This research was made possible through the Ecological Research as Education Network (EREN).
Vince Pantalone, longtime football coach and current coordinator of retention support programs, recently published, “Incident on the Road to Canterbury.” Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and elsewhere. The debut book features a young Geoffrey Chaucer 20 years before he wrote “The Canterbury Tales.”
Dr. Dompier Co-Authors Paper on High School Athletic Injuries
Dr. Thomas P. Dompier, associate professor of athletic training, co-authored a paper that was recently published by the Journal of Athletic Training. He co-authored “Athletic Training Service Characteristics for Patients with Ankle Sprains Sustained During High School Athletics” with colleagues from Indian University, Ohio University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

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.
