Baylor Faculty Presents Research Set for Feb. 19

Feb. 14, 1997

Baylor University's Graduate School will host the fourth annual Faculty Research Day from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, in the Bill Daniel Student Center and Tidwell Bible Building Room B01.

The research presentations will focus on work done by Baylor faculty outside of class and are designed to stimulate interest in multidisciplinary research.

"This is a strictly voluntary event. It is meant as a day of emphasis and appreciation for research. This gives a chance for members of the faculty to inform the remainder of the faculty about what they are doing," said Dr. Darden Powers, acting dean of the graduate school and chairman of the physics department.

The sessions are either 45 minutes or an hour in length. The presentations include "The Masked Days: A Search for Identity in Postmodern Latin America," by Dr. Guillermo Garcia-Corales, assistant professor of Spanish, scheduled for 8:45-9:30 a.m. in the Beckham room in the Bill Daniel Student Center and conducted in Spanish. Dr. John M. Velasquez, assistant professor of psychology, will speak from 2:45-3:30 p.m. in the Gregory room on "Hypnotizability Differences Between Persons with Chronic Pain and A Normal Sample."

Other presentations include "Texas African-American Foodways As Recorded in the W.P.A. Slave Narratives" by Dr. T. Lindsay Baker, assistant professor of museum studies, from 10:45-11:30 a.m. in the Baines Room and "Minimizing Future Earthquake Disasters in Turkey" by Dr. William Mitchell, associate professor of political science, from 1:45-2:30 p.m. in the Baines room.
