February Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable
(12:20 PM - 1:10 PM)
The next Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable will be this Friday, February 16, from 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm in the Judson Leadership Center. The presenter will be Shakima M. Clency, Diversity Fellow for the Center for Student Involvement. Her topic will be "Women in Sports: The Highs and Lows of Inclusivity." In 2018, female athletes continue to face discrimination, oppression, and misrepresentation on and off the court. Through a brief overview of the history of women's involvement in sports, this presentation will highlight the severity of the challenges faced as well as the various ways that female athletes have triumphed personally and professionally. Come learn about the ways that the Williams sisters, Billie Jean King, Brittney Griner, Pat Summitt, and others continue to challenge cultural and gender norms while dominating in their respective sports.
The Women's and Gender Studies Roundtables are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. If you are interested in presenting at a roundtable next year, please contact Sandra Singer at email@example.com
Math Research talk by Kwadwo Antwi-Fordjour
(12:20 PM - 1:20 PM)
The Division of Mathematics and Computer Science is pleased to announce a research talk by Kwadwo Antwi-Fordjour, a candidate for the tenure-track position in mathematics. Dr. Antwi-Fordjour’s talk will take place on Friday, February 16, from 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm in Room 228 of Myers Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend. Title: "Modeling the Dynamics of a Fresh-Water Organism with Systems Containing Exponential Powers" Abstract: This talk is devoted to study one of the famous models in biological spatial pattern formation. Modeling the head formation of a fresh water organism known as the hydra is considered using systems of differential equations containing exponential powers. Typical experiments on hydra involve removing parts of the head region and transplanting it to other parts of the body column. A new head will form under certain conditions. I will show numerically that solutions to this system exist locally. Numerical simulations using MATLAB based on finite difference methods are used to graphically show the solution profiles of the system.
