School of Arts & Sciences Newsletter: March 2021
Message From the Dean
We are excited to share with you the spring edition of the School of Arts & Sciences e-newsletter. Our students and faculty continue to amaze us as they pursue the interdisciplinary research and knowledge needed to solve real-world problems for a better future. In this edition, we have highlighted just a few of their stories — stories that show how Clarkson scholarship, teaching and service extend beyond the campus. I hope you enjoy reading them.
Tom Langen, Interim Dean, School of Arts & Sciences
A Trip Back in Time
With all their devices and high-tech toys, kids today may have a hard time imagining what life was like for children of the past. Now they can hear about it for themselves at the North Country Children’s Museum in an interactive audio and touch-screen exhibit, created in part by Clarkson Professor Laura Ettinger and her students.
Seeing the Future
When they created a pandemic simulation a few years ago, little did two Clarkson professors know how relevant it would be today. In the course Violence and Reconciliation, co-taught by the pair, students engage in the simulation to explore the aftermath of a pandemic. The professors recently wrote about the course in PS: Political Science & Politics.
Thorpe’s National Presence
One of Clarkson’s own will have a say in directing the country’s engineering and defense R&D policies and programs. Professor of Computer Science Chuck Thorpe was recently named chair of the IEEE USA Research & Development Policy Committee.
Shaping Public Policy
Congratulations to Professor of Computer Science Jeanna Matthews, another member of the Clarkson community who will be shaping public policy, this time in the field of artificial intelligence! Mathews was recently named vice chair of the IEEE USA AI Policy Committee.
