Dr. Owen M. Smith and Dr. Anne Collins Smith, Associate Professors of Philosophy and Classical Studies in the Division of Multidisciplinary Programs, recently edited the 14th edition of the popular ethics textbook Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Moral Issues (McGraw-Hill, 2014). The Smiths were invited by the publishers to take over responsibility for this textbook after the previous editor retired. In addition to replacing many of the articles in the anthology and writing supplemental material for every chapter, they also updated the accompanying Instructor's Resource Guide with discussion suggestions and sample questions for all of the new articles.

Dr. Owen M. Smith and Dr. Anne Collins Smith co-authored and recently published "A Prison for Others-A Burden to Oneself," in The Dynamics of Interconnections in Popular Culture(s) by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. A comparison of women's roles in the Prisoner series of 1967 and the 2009 AMC remake, this chapter contrasts gender roles in the remake and original versions, along with examining parallels between the two sources.
