Black Hills State University recognizes faculty and staff for their recent accomplishments.

Dr. Adam Gaffey, assistant professor of rhetoric and philosophy, recently published an original analysis in the peer-reviewed Western Journal of Communication. This analysis profiles the contested celebration of George Washington's birthday in February 1862 and analyzes the disparate methods of commemoration wherein Union and Confederate ideologies offered dueling memories of Washington and the meaning of his 1796 Farewell Address.

Gaffey also was recently informed that the article "Stakeholder Agency and Social Welfare: Pluralism and Decision Making in the Multi-Objective Corporation" will be published in the Academy of Management Review (AMR). Gaffey wrote the article with several co-authors.

Dr. Mary Caton-Rosser, associate professor of mass communications, and Dr. Barbara Looney, assistant professor of business, presented, virtually, during the Edulearn International Conference held in Barcelona, Spain. Their presentation, "Teaching with Technology: Trajectories for the 21st Century Pedagogue," was written with the help of former research assistant Kaitlin Schneider, who now works in the BHSU Office of Admissions, and independent study students Hannah Downs, mass communication major from Madison, and Lina Katelaite, an international student from Lithuania. The presentation shared the results of research completed during the final year of a three-year longitudinal study that examined the qualitative perceptions and receptivity among teachers and students when using social/digital media in the classroom.    

A paper by Caton-Rosser and Looney, "Mobilizing Faculty to Engage Social Media as an Instructional Tool," also has been accepted for publication in The International Journal of Technologies in Learning.

Dr. Cheryl Anagnopoulos, professor of psychology, was invited to speak at the State Bar Association&rsquos annual convention in Rapid City in June.

Denice Turner, assistant professor of language arts education, will share her new book, "WORTHY," on KOTA&rsquos noon show with Helen Duhamel on Sept. 4. "WORTHY" was selected by KOTA Reads as the August Book of the Month.

Dr. Andrey Reznikov, professor of English at BHSU, was interviewed by the editor of SlavFile, a newsletter of the Slavic Languages Division of American Translators&rsquo Association (ATA) &ndash about my sociolinguistic dictionary titled Russian Anti-Proverbs of the 21st Century, published in 2013.

ATA, founded in 1959, is the largest professional association of translators and interpreters in the U.S. with nearly 11,000 members in more than 95 countries. Eighteen special-interest divisions offer ATA members essential resources for continuing education, professional growth, and networking one of them is Slavic Languages Division.
