math faculty at JMM

The 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) were held locally this year, in downtown Baltimore. This gave a nice opportunity for Stevenson faculty to easily attend. The JMM attract thousands of mathematicians from around the world each year to attend talks and workshops on teaching and research and to network. Math faculty (l to r in picture above) Ben Wilson, Sarah Blanset, and Mark Branson all attended the meetings. 

Math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, was invited to speak at Hood College for their Mathematics Seminar. His talk was based on the research in computational linguistics he did jointly with Applied Math majors Billy Heidel and Evan Williams over the summer during the S3RP (Summer Science Scholars Research Program).

Dr. Jamie Goodall (left, Department of Public History) and Dr. Kerry Spencer's (Department of Math and Physics) paper, “The Good, The Questionable, The Toxic: Using Muggle-Borns as a Lens for First-Gen Experience with Mentorship,” will be published in an upcoming book, The Pedagogy of Harry Potter. The paper will examine the difficulty both muggle-born and first-generation university students face as they navigate appropriate and inappropriate mentor-mentee relationships without the benefit of cultural fluency and against existing biases. The paper offers advice for both students and faculty members on creating and nurturing effective mentoring relationships.
