ULM professor to serve on committee devoted to scholarly works on Kant
The Southern Study Group marks the fourth such group of the North American Kant Society.
It joins the Eastern, Pacific and Midwest Study Groups as conferences where scholars of renowned German philosopher Immanuel Kant can submit and give papers for other interested Kant scholars from across the U.S. and Europe.
The first meeting of the Southern Study Group will take place in at Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas, in 2010.
Dr. Wilson, who has dedicated her career to understanding Kant, said she is looking forward to another opportunity to contribute to furthering an interest in Kant studies.
She is also currently translating Immanuel Kant’s anthropology lecture from German into English for the Cambridge University Press edition of Kant's Works in English.
ULM art professor to teach photography course through British Studies program
Joni H. Noble, assistant professor of art at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, will teach a photography course in London through the ULM British Studies program during the second summer session.
Five ULM students are enrolled for the course, which begins July 9 and ends Aug. 9 and offers the opportunity to earn six hours of university credit. Noble's students will participate in photography classes in both London and Paris.
The British Studies program is hosted by the University of Southern Mississippi and is offered through a 16-campus consortium, of which ULM is a member. "Travel strengthens the eye and broadens the perspective,” said Noble.
“The lives of both students and teachers alike, who participate in the ULM British Studies program, will be positively changed.”
