| Faculty Authors Honored for Books On Research
A reception, sponsored by the dean of the faculty, was held recently for seven faculty authors to celebrate the recent publication of their research this past year. The authors, whose variety of fields represents the intellectual diversity and breadth of Berea’s faculty, were recognized by the college for the contributions made through their efforts to complete these books.
Their books include:
- The Hayloft Gang: The Story of the National Barn Dance; written by Chad Berry,
- Complexity Theory in the Contemporary Organization: The Development of Web-based Education as a University in the United States; written by Dan Huck,
- God’s Wounds: Hermeneutic of the Christian Symbol of Divine Suffering, Divine Vulnerability and Creation; written by Jeff Pool,
- Teaching Confucianism (a collection of essays by scholars of Confucianism including Rob Foster in Berea’s History Department); edited by Jeff Richey,
- The Emperor’s God: Imperial Misunderstanding of Christianity; written by Mike Rivage-Seul, and
- Excising the Spirit: A Literary Analysis of Female Circumcision; written by Linda Strong-Leek.
“Perspectives,” which contains a more complete listing of “the scholarly and professional work of our faculty in articles published, papers presented and other examples of the professional growth of Berea’s teacher/scholars,” will be published at a later date.
