2013 CLASS Faculty Research & Creative Activity Reception

Wednesday, Feb. 6 showcase of College’s tenure-line faculty scholarship

Faculty Research - Book Display

By necessity the definition of research must be broad in a college that houses the humanities, health sciences, performing and visual arts and social sciences.

From 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, the College’s 16 departments will come together in the Rockwell Pavilion to showcase their faculties’ scholarship, experimentation and imaginative engagement artistic mediums.

The 2nd CLASS Faculty Research & Creative Activity Reception is an opportunity to spark cross-discipline conversations between departments and inspire students interested in careers in academia.

On display will be examples of the innovative work CLASS faculty members do in their academic fields of study to enhance human understanding, expand human capabilities and evolve human creativity.

The Moores School of Music will feature video clips of faculty-directed student performances.  John Snyder, Professor of Music Theory, organized his archival research into the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: A Centennial Celebration, a symposium that included a panel discussion and two concerts that highlighted the Anglo-African composer’s works, life and legacy.

The Department of Sociology will display the most recent books and articles published by its faculty. Dr. Amanda Baumle has shared her research on whether and how marriage and family laws play a role in the parenting decisions of gay and lesbian parents with Houston Chronicle readers in an opinion editorial.

The Texas Obesity Research Center within the Department of Health and Human Performance held its biennial conference in November. The conference brought together obesity investigators from the United States, Mexico and Canada for discussions about their empirical and laboratory research.

“The hallmark of a great university is the research that is expected of every faculty member,” said Dean John W. Roberts. “We applaud the efforts of our faculty whose dedicated research contributes to our reputation as a great university and enriches the educational experience that we provide our students.”

The gift that came from a very good career decision

Dr. Robert Carp establishes a planned gift to endow a chair in the Department of Political Science

When he first began teaching at University of Houston, Robert Carp wasn’t thinking about retirement or estate planning. He was a 25-year-old man with the goal of buying a house with enough yard space for a garden.

This year, Dr. Carp, professor of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, will celebrate the 44th year of his career at UH.  In that time, he purchased a home with a garden, as well as a condominium in Galveston. These days, he can often be seen taking one of his 10-mile walks along the Seawall.

Because he spent roughly two-thirds of his life at UH, and has no children of his own, Dr. Carp recently made an estate-planning decision to leave a gift to the institution he loves.

“It is just natural for me to give to University of Houston,” said Dr. Carp. “I never minded going to work since I enjoyed it so much – I drive to work every day with a smile on my face. This has been what put the bread on the table, so I want to give back.”

Dr. Carp’s generous gift will endow a Chair in Political Science and provide financial support and leadership to the department where he dedicated his career.

Shortly after earning his doctorate in political science from the University of Iowa in 1969, Dr. Carp began his career at UH as a professor of political science. His specialty is Public Law, which includes Constitutional Law and Judicial Process – his most frequently taught courses.

During his distinguished career at UH, he served as Associate Dean of the College of Social Sciences from 1982 to 2000, received the UH Teaching Excellence Award in 1996, published five books, authored 48 articles and won numerous research grants, and authored 48 articles.

“I am very fortunate,” said Dr. Carp. “As people get older they tend to review their primary life-decisions, thinking about which were the good ones, and which were the poor ones.  When it comes to my joining the University of Houston, this was one of my very good decisions.”

Over the course of his career, Dr. Carp has made an impact on a countless number of students. Often, he is contacted by former students with questions, comments about his books, or just to say hello or invite him to an event.

“I’m not on Facebook, but students have contacted me through the UH Facebook page,” said Dr. Carp. “After they contact me, I add their names to the political science newsletter to help the department keep up with our alumni.”

One of his greatest pleasures is attending commencement ceremonies and seeing his students become alumni and witnessing the excitement of families and friends as their loved ones receive their diplomas. Over the years, the racial and ethnic make-up of the students crossing the graduation stage has expanded to global proportions.

“The best thing about UH is the diversity of the students,” said Dr. Carp. “When I first got here, it was not diverse at all. But I like the diversity and have learned from my students.”

Dr. Carp never thought he would be working at the same place for so long, but UH has provided him a quality of life that he enjoys. Therefore, he is happy to give back to the place that has given him so many good memories.

 “I am so lucky because I like what I do and who I am,” said Dr. Carp.

Getting to CLASS right on time

The College welcomes mid-year transfer students at start of spring semester

Transfer Orientation Session

Late summer is the traditional back-to-school shopping season. Retailers, however, may be missing an opportunity to sell college essentials to students who enroll after the winter holidays.

The number of students enrolling in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences in January has steadily increased over the years.

“Students who are beginning classes in January can sometimes lack a sense of belonging, but we want to assure them that they are not a late-comer,” said Amy Ramirez, Academic Advisor for the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. “They got here when they were supposed to be here.”

As the Spring 2013 semester kicked off, a total of 1,184 new CLASS students began classes for the first time on January 14. That’s about a third of the size of the new freshman CLASS in the College for the Fall 2012 semester.

Of the total number of mid-year transfers, 19 are true freshmen enrolling in their very first semester ever of college and 32 are international students transferring for a semester abroad or making a permanent switch.

The remaining 1,133 individuals are U.S. resident transfer students coming from community colleges, junior colleges and other four-year universities.

Students transfer in the middle of an academic year for a variety of reasons, Ramirez said. Some believe that attending community college first saves them money. Others may have missed a fall application deadline or decided to attend community college first to take their basic classes. Finally, some students are mid-year transfers because the four-year college or university they began attending either didn’t have the specific program they were interested in, or the campus just wasn’t a fit for their needs.

Because such a large number of students enter CLASS from other institutions, a program is in place to make the transition easier for those students.

The university partners with local community colleges to place academic advisors on-site at the community college. That allows the advisors to work with students early in the transfer process to make sure they take the proper classes and file the correct paperwork.

“This program is nice because the students see the same individual both at their community college and at UH,” said Ramirez. “The students will see a familiar face as they transition.”

One of the biggest challenges for mid-year transfer students is confirming that all the credits they earned during courses completed at their previous school in December are accounted for by the time they start taking their UH classes – especially if the initial class was a prerequisite for a class they are taking at UH.

“That can be frustrating for transfer students because any postponement has a ripple effect and can delay graduation goals,” said Ramirez. “But we have a system in place to streamline that process and make it efficient.”

Ashley Davis, a Liberal Arts major, knows the frustration of not having assistance to keep up with all the details involved with changing colleges. She transferred as a junior into CLASS from Xavier University in Louisiana for financial reasons and to be closer to her family home in Houston.

“I missed a deadline and had to delay beginning my classes until this January,” said Davis. “But I feel like I had more time to prepare to transition to UH. I’d tell future transfer students to stay on top of their forms and paperwork.”

Another tool utilized to help students transition to CLASS is called the “O-Team.” The Orientation Team consists of highly motivated students who know a lot about the campus and are excited to share their pride in the university with incoming students.

One member of the O-Team is junior Jaquelyn Moody, a sociology student who came to UH as a freshman in August 2011. The orientation leader she had as a new student to UH inspired her to offer the same warm welcome to students entering UH after her.

“Many students are overwhelmed by the immense size and layout of this campus,” Moody said. “I advise each and every incoming student to come to campus the weekend before classes start and just get lost!”

No matter how a student comes to CLASS, the faculty, staff and other students work hard to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible.

“We want to be sure these students can hit the ground running,” said Ramirez.

Black History Month convergence of current events and recent past

African American Studies Program celebrates entrepreneurs and pioneers

African American Studies Program Calendar February 2013

The national unemployment rate stood at 7.8 percent in December 2012. However, for that same month, the unemployment rate for African Americans was nearly double at 14 percent.

That means about 1 in 7 Black people in this country are out of work and looking for employment.

To offer an alternative to the unemployed and students considering their job options post- graduation, the African American Studies Program is hosting the Entrepreneur Expo series during Black History Month.

Every Wednesday during the month of February, the AAS program invites students and the community to learn from black entrepreneurs who have been successful in owning and operating their own business. Featured speakers include former city council member and restaurateur Jarvis Johnson and small business owner Shan Gregg.

“We wanted to create an event that would be beneficial to both students and the city of Houston,” said Lashonda Williams, African American Studies Program Manager.

According to a U.S. Census Bureau report released last year, the number of African American-owned businesses increased by 60.5 percent to 1.9 million, between 2002 and 2007. That’s triple the national growth rate for start-up businesses.

The City of Houston ranks third in the nation among cities with the most black-owned businesses, falling just behind New York and Chicago.

Ms. Gregg, owner of Simply Scents, has personal experience with a difficult job market. She started her candle company after being laid off from her job as a flight attendant.

Today, her candles are sold in a number of Walgreens locations in addition to her storefront, local boutiques, and online. She has two employees, turning her personal unemployment experience into gainful employment for three people.

“I love business and I love talking about my experience,” said Ms. Gregg. “I want to tell students that owning your own business is possible. You can turn what you are interested in and what you love into a career.”

The Entrepreneur Expo series starts with a 2:30 pm lecture on Feb. 4 in Agnes Arnold Hall 208 by Dr. Juliet E.K. Walker, founder and director of the Center for Black Business History, Entrepreneurship and Technology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of The History of Black Business in America (St. Martin’s Press, 2003.)

The entrepreneurs who will follow during the rest of the month will share their personal experiences, offer advice, and answer questions. Some of the entrepreneurs offer internship opportunities, so students will also have an opportunity to interact with potential employers.

“We hope the attendees will come away from the Expo with an awareness of the opportunities available when someone has the passion, skills, support system and education needed to sustain any business,” said Ms. Williams. “Even if entrepreneurship isn’t for you, participants will come away understanding the work ethic and skills necessary to be successful in the workforce.”

In addition to the Entrepreneur Expo Series, the African American Studies Program is hosting other February events that celebrate African American pioneers:

  • Lecture by Dr. Raymond Doswell, Vice President of Curator Services, Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Mo, at 11:30 am on Feb.5 in Agnes Arnold Hall Room 628
  • Lecture by Captain Paul Matthews, founder of the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum in Houston at noon on Feb. 8 in the Rockwell Pavilion of M.D. Anderson Library. Followed by 2:30 p.m. screening of the 2010 documentary “Inside Buffalo,” an historic account of the 92nd Infantry Division, the African American segregated combat unit who fought in World War Two.

The full schedule of the African American Studies Program’s 2013 African American Heritage Month commemorations can be found on the program’s web page.

Best in Texas: Moores Concert Chorale and Symphony Orchestra

Texas Music Educators Association selects Moores groups to perform at conference

Each year, teachers and band directors from around the world flock to San Antonio for the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Convention. The annual event delivers hundreds of workshops and more than 60 concerts featuring top musicians from around the state.

Only the best in Texas perform at this event.

Among the ensembles selected to perform at this year’s event are the University of Houston’s Moores Concert Chorale and Moores Symphony Orchestra.  Both groups will perform Feb. 15.

“Each year TMEA features only two college choirs.  This will be the third time in recent years that UH Concert Chorale will be featured,” said Betsy Cook Weber, professor and director of choral studies.

“The audience will consist almost entirely of musicians who know what they are listening to,” she said. “They are always very supportive, but they are also very critical because they are so knowledgeable.  The students and I have been working very hard to prepare for this important concert.  We'll be ready!”

TMEA hosts one of the nation’s largest music educator conventions. More than 25,000 teachers, band directors and musicians attend this annual event. In addition to concerts, the convention features more than 200 workshops and an extensive showroom with exhibitors from around the globe. This year’s event runs Feb. 13 – 16 at San Antonio’s Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

All TMEA concerts will be performed in the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center’s Lila Cockrell Theatre in San Antonio (200 E. Market St.).

Performances times and selected works are as follows:

  • 3:30 p.m. – Moores Symphony Orchestra with conductors Franz Anton Krager, David Bertman, Richard C. Crain, Lowell E. Graham and James F. Keene: Selections to be performed include “Commando March” by Samuel Barger, “First Military Suite in E. Flat” by Gustav Holst, “Lincoln Posy” by Percy Grainger, and “The Ride of the Valkyries” by Richard Wagner.
  • 6:30 p.m. - Moores Concert Chorale directed by Betsy Cook Weber: Among the selections to be performed are the Beatles’ “Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da,” “O Light of Light” by UH Moores School of Music director David Ashley White and “Frohlocket, ihr Völker auf Erden” by Felix Mendelssohn

The orchestra also will accompany the Texas All-State Choir during its performance at noon, Feb. 16 and the Texas All-State Women’s Choir at 3:30 p.m., Feb. 16.

“This is the biggest event of its kind in the state and one of the biggest music conventions in the country,” said Maestro Krager, professor of conducting and director of orchestras. “To be asked to perform at this event is an honor. Our students will perform in front of veteran musicians, so they will be on top of their games.”

The orchestra recently performed at another major music conference, the Midwest Clinic in Chicago.

In May, the Moores Concert Chorale will take its talents to 13th annual International Chamber Choir Competition in Germany. The ensemble is one of only 10 international choirs to be selected for this exclusive competition.

Political philosophy major evolving into radio journalist

Senior and COOG Radio founder Clifton Conner interning at KUHF

News Coog Radio - Clifton Conner

Conner Clifton says he’s strongly opinionated, but willing to be a neutral observer to succeed as a radio journalist.

As a senior on the verge of graduating with a degree in political philosophy, Clifton shares his views in the classroom, but not on the job.

He’s interning this academic year at KUHF, Houston Public Media’s news station affiliated with National Public Radio. At the station’s on-campus studios, Clifton spends his days covering and writing news stories for KUHF.

However, his initial interest in radio broadcasting was spurred by the 2009 movie, “Pirate Radio.” The movie is about a group of seafaring disk jockeys who played rock music from a ship to get around 1960’s British censorship laws.

“I became fascinated with how to tell a story only with audio,” said Clifton. “So, after watching the movie, I waited outside Dr. Renu Khator’s office so I could ask her if I could create an on-campus radio station.”

He eventually got a green light and launched COOG Radio, UH’s only student-run radio station.

In a culture where anyone can launch a podcast or YouTube channel, there was a lure to radio that Clifton could not resist. His vision for the radio station it an eclectic mix of music and information, but he was certain that he wanted it to be a medium where individuals could freely express themselves and their opinions without fear of University repercussions.

“I was baffled that UH did not have a (student-run) radio station,” said Clifton. “I saw a hole and wanted to fill it.”

It took two years for Clifton’s vision to become a reality. He sat through countless meetings with university administration and the UH Center for Student Involvement. He acquired equipment through KUHF, and he recruited students to work at the station.

Those efforts resulted in the radio start-up being offered a tiny work space - he calls it a closet - on the bottom floor of the University Center. With programming and equipment in place, COOG radio was ready to go live.

“We went on the air on August 29, 2011,” said Clifton. “I wanted to be first on the microphone so I started at 8:00 a.m. The first DJ came in at 9:00 a.m. For overnights, we used an automated music player.”

Clifton and his cohorts bring a wide variety of music, art and culture to the university and the city overall. He gives special credit to fellow student Sofia Straus for helping to start COOG radio.

“I went into the radio industry, but she went into music,” said Clifton. “Today she works at SugarHill Recording Studios located in Houston.”

SugarHill has been in continuous operation for more than 70 years. In that time, the musicians who recorded there include Lightnin’ Hopkins, George Jones, Freddy Fender, the Rolling Stones, Arnett Cobb, Dizzy Gillespie, and Destiny’s Child.

This year, COOG radio received $14,000 from the University as an operating budget, but this funding came at a price, Clifton said.

“With that money coming from UH, I had to watch what I spoke about on COOG radio,” said Clifton. “I couldn’t touch the Student Government Association, for example. I had to play nice.”

Initially, COOG radio considered incorporating advertising so the station could be independent, but timing didn’t allow them to go that route. When Clifton began this project, he was a sophomore. Once the station got up and running, he was a senior and he didn’t have time to fully develop an advertising program.

Clifton has passed the COOG radio baton on to the next class of radio enthusiasts, though he still acts in an advisory role to the station. As he completes his last college credit and prepares to graduate in May, he’s gaining paid work experience as a KUHF intern.

“It is hard out there for new graduates,” said Clifton. “I feel blessed to be able to write the news. I’m allowed to cover news stories by my own intuition, as well as by assignment. I’ve had opportunities to interview Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Mayor Annise Parker.”

Once his stories are written, they are broadcast on-air by KUHF on-air talent.

“I am really enjoying this job,” said Clifton. “COOG radio opened doors for me, but this position is starting to help me on my own merit. I plan to stay in radio journalism where my duty is to inform, not convince.”

Cameron Buckner awarded first CLASS Digital Humanities post-doctoral fellowship

Cameron Buckner

Cameron Buckner has been awarded the College’s first post-doctoral fellowship in Digital Humanities. The position reports directly to the Associate Dean for Faculty and Research in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

Dr. Buckner will begin the fellowship’s one-year term on September 1, 2013 after completing the second year of an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany. The CLASS Digital Humanities fellowship has an option to be renewed for a second year.

The position is designed to support the burgeoning interdisciplinary Digital Humanities @ UH Initiative launched by CLASS faculty in the departments of Art, English, History, Philosophy, Modern and Classical Languages in collaboration with Computer Science and Law faculty and UH Libraries staff members.

“Under Dean Roberts, CLASS has adopted a visionary approach to the future of the humanities that has already begun to pay off,” Dr. Buckner said. “UH last year received the most grant support awarded by the NEH out of all higher education institutions. And rightfully so—CLASS faculty have developed some of the most innovative recent digital archives and methods in the humanities, including Casey Due-Hackney’s Homer Multi-Text Project, Natalie Houston’s Visual Page, and Rex Koontz and Dan Price’s Vwire tool.”

As the fellow, Dr. Buckner will coordinate the Initiative’s activities, including scheduling speakers, organizing and participating in mini-workshops and reading groups, developing grant applications and other funding sources with faculty and graduate students. In addition, he will help to develop digital humanities courses and training programs.

He will also have time to work on his own research. Dr. Buckner takes an interdisciplinary approach to research, which covers a number of areas, including philosophy of mind, cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, and psychology. He plans to use this interdisciplinary background to provide a deeper theoretical grounding for research in the digital humanities—specifically, by leveraging techniques from computational psycholinguistics to show how digitized texts can reveal the “mental fingerprints” of their authors and readers.

He graduated in 2004 with highest honors from Texas Tech University with a B.S. in computer science and a B.A. in philosophy. He earned his Ph.D. in philosophy with a minor in cognitive science in 2011 from Indiana University, Bloomington. He began his career in artificial intelligence, migrating to philosophy as he became more interested in the nature of the human mind and human knowledge.

Dr. Buckner is a founding project member of the Indiana Philosophy Ontology (InPhO) project (http://inpho.cogs.indiana.edu), which uses a combination of statistical analysis and expert feedback to analyze over 37 million words of philosophical content.

He co-authored several successful grant proposals for the InPhO project, including an NEH Digital Humanities startup grant, an NEH Digital Humanities Implementation grant, and a joint NEH-DFG Bi-lateral Digital Humanities Grant for 2011-2014 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the German Research Foundation (DFG). Altogether, these grants brought in over $720,000 for Indiana University and €126,400 for for the University of Mannheim.

“Digital humanities research not only enables humanists to ask ambitious new questions—for example, to discover themes and trends across thousands of digitized Victorian novels, or to compare the coverage biases of entire encyclopedias –but it also prepares UH graduates to compete in an increasingly computerized world,” Dr. Buckner said. “I look forward to helping UH take its rightful place amongst the best international centers of computational research in the humanities.”

What is Chicano? It depends on the social or political context.

Center for Mexican American Studies presents Feb. 5 lecture on the word’s origins and iterations

Dr. Jose Limon

What’s in a name? The name “Chicano” carries with it the identity and ideology of the student militancy of the 1960s and ‘70s. While the term has become synonymous with its political times, “Chicano” began as something much more humble.

The man who in 1979 wrote about the term “Chicano,” its origins, usage and influence, comes to the University of Houston as part of the Center for Mexican American Studies’ (CMAS) 40th Anniversary Spring Speakers Series.

“Chicano Revisited: Politicizing the Practices of Everyday Life” will feature Jose Limon, University of Notre Dame professor of American Literature. The event is planned from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 5 in the Rockwell Pavilion in the M.D. Anderson Library. The event is free and open to the public.

“My talk explores the tensions that can arise when political elites appropriate the everyday cultural practices of a people whom they presume to lead,” Limon said. “I was and continue to be such a political elite. I focus on the term "Chicano" as it was appropriated by the political elite of the Chicano Movement of the 1960s, but I also discuss other such cultural practices in the arts, literature and everyday language and dress.”

In 1979, Limon wrote the seminal essay “The Folk Performance of Chicano and the Cultural Limits of Political Ideology,” which traced how the name “Chicano” moved from a nickname—or the Nahuatl shortened name for “Mexican”—to a public name associated with political ideologies.

“The speaker series commemorates the accomplishments of the center, but also reflects on the contributions of the activists and academics that evolved during that time period as they sought a place and space for Chicanas and Chicanos in American society,” said Lorenzo Cano, associate director of CMAS

The Center for Mexican American Studies was established in 1972 as an interdisciplinary academic program focusing on the Mexican American and broader Latino experience in the United States. With an aim to advance knowledge, promote critical thinking and foster the value of service to the community, CMAS has a broad spectrum of public and scholarly programs—the Visiting Scholars Program, the Graduate Fellowship and the Academic Achievers Program. It also offers students the opportunity to minor in Mexican American Studies.
