Thomas Fagerholm, Theater, recently presented an invited workshop at the South Eastern Theater Conference (SETC) in Mobile, Ala. “Scenic and Costume Shop Organization: Owning Your Space” looked at organizational techniques that can help any theater shop redevelop workspace with the intent to maximize efficiency and product output.

“Does Impulsive Response to Internal and External Food Cues Lead to Higher Calorie Intake?” an article by Jeb Asirvatham, Agribusiness Economics, was recently published in the International Journal of Applied Behavioral Economics. The findings show that respondents who consume higher calorie diets exercise restraint but are also overcome by impulsivity. One of the obstacles to treating obesity is that patients are often considered to be weak-willed (or even unwilling) participants in managing their diet and, consequently, health. 

Benjamin Bricker, Political Science, was awarded a summer research fellowship by the German Academic Exchange Service, or DAAD. The fellowship will fund a summer residency at the University of Mannheim, where he will conduct research on the German court system.
