Daniels and Diddams Present at Academy of Management

Denise Daniels, professor of management, and Margaret Diddams, associate professor of organizational psychology, presented a paper at the annual conference of the Academy of Management in Atlanta in August. The paper, titled "Work With Toil: Moving Beyond Good Work to Redeemed Work," was selected for inclusion in the “Best Paper Proceedings."

Diddams Co-Authors Presentation

Margaret Diddams, associate professor of organizational psychology, co-authored a paper recently presented at the annual American Psychological Association Convention in New Orleans. The paper was presented by her doctoral clinical psychology student Joy Staley. The paper, titled “Relationships Among a Breast Cancer Patient's Perception of Husband's and Treatment Team's Social Support: Satisfaction With Husband, and Distress," was part of the Division of Health Psychology's symposium titled “Diversity, Disparity, and Treatment."

Feldman's Artwork Nominated

An installation by Professor of Art Roger Feldman titled “Wahrheitstisch" was one of five finalists for the 2006 Arlin G. Meyer Prize. The Meyer Prize is awarded annually to a full-time faculty member from a college or university in the Lilly Fellows Program National Network. Work that highly exemplifies the practice of the Christian artistic or scholarly vocation in relation to any pertinent subject matter or literary and artistic style is considered. A letter from the coordinator of the 2006 Meyer Prize jury stated, “Professor Feldman's installation impressed the jury deeply. They commented on the way this piece invited the participation of viewers beyond the art world, on the way it invited discovery and personal appropriation, and the way in which it sought to reconcile the past and present within the context of this specific location." Congratulations, Roger.

Ferreiro Summer Update Correction

Professor of European History Alberto Ferreiro's pilgrimage in August was in Spain with people from Washington, California, and Arizona. Last week's Fac/Staff Bulletin inadvertently reported the pilgrimage was in the United States.
