Pulse Lecture Series (2005)

The inaugural Pulse Student Lecture, held on April 19 in the Honors College Living-Learning Center, was the culmination of The Pulse's endeavors for the year. Deans, professors, students, and Pulse staff members gathered to celebrate the achievements of Baylor's outstanding undergraduate scholarly writers. Provost David Lyle Jeffery opened the evening by commenting on the worthwhile objectives of Baylorís undergraduate journal. Lauren Dammon, graduating senior in English and philosophy, gave her presentation on "A Novel Approach to Knowing: Integrating Narrative Literature and Virtue Epistemology." Lauren's talk drew on texts from Oedipus Rex to Harry Potter to argue for the potential contributions of literary works to the study of the virtues of knowledge. The other four student authors published in the Spring 2005 edition were also recognized, as were the year's featured faculty and other academic supporters. The Spring 2005 edition of The Pulse is available online here, and video of the lecture can be viewed at www.baylortv.com.
