Dr. Anne Collins Smith and Dr. Owen M. Smith, Associate Professors of Philosophy and Classical Studies
A chapter by Dr. Anne Collins Smith and Dr. Owen M. Smith has just been published in the anthology The Dynamics of Interconnections in Popular Culture(s) by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This was the last book edited by the late Ray Browne, a pioneer in the popular culture studies movement. The chapter, "A Prison for Others-A Burden to One's Self," analyzes the original Prisoner series and the recent Prisoner miniseries in terms of their perspectives on gender, concluding that the original series, which demonstrates the influence of liberal feminism, is far more progressive than the newer version, which exhibits curious parallels and affinities with gnosticism, including a negative view of women.

Under professor Dr. Greule's tutelage, Daniel Karnafel won 1st Place in the Video Open category with his entry titled, "Dirt Court Dreams." And, Devonte Hill won Honorable Mention in the Video Studio/Live Performance Segment.

SFA AdHoc students were on the first, second, and third place teams at the American Advertising Federation (AAF) conference and competition in Houston on November 2nd. First place winner Daniel Karnafel, second place Josh Pinegot and Emily Jensen and third place, Emma Causey.
Upon arrival, the students were separated from their college groups. Then, they were placed into new teams of 10-12 with students from more than 20 universities across Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. The AAF's corporate sponsor provided assignment and each team was taken to a local agency, design firm or in-house marketing department to concept out their campaigns. The students had only eight hours to fulfill the challenge, which entailed submitting a creative solution, along with marketing and media plans and a video of their presentation in time for judging on the same evening.
Also, thanks to Dr. Bond for devoting her time to travel with these students so they could attend the conference and represent our department and SFA.
Economics, environment and society -- the elements of the 'triple bottom line' are mutually-reinforcing,
pivotal factors in a community's quality of life, its livability. For most of the past year, students and staff members from Stephen F. Austin State University's Center for a Livable World have been on the ground in Kilgore, conducting research in their pilot livability study here, deconstructing the community in a myriad of ways, from housing, shopping, dining, parks, walkability, race relations, education, city services and more. Below are the findings of the study.
