Five anthropology majors from Truman, Kathryn Hedlund, Racheal Kissee, Zoee Matlock, Rose McCray and Julianne Meyer, attended the Central States Anthropological Society annual meeting in St. Louis April 4-6 with Amber Johnson, professor of anthropology. Hedlund and Meyer also presented papers at the meeting. Hedlund’s paper was entitled “Cultural Views and their Impact on Mental Illness: An Analysis of Schizophrenia, Recovery and Attitudes about Mental Illness across Cultures,” and Meyer’s paper was “The Devil Lives in the Apple Orchard and other Kansas City Ghost Tales.”

Gregory Jones, professor of music, will return to China in early May for a tour that will include recitals and performances with Chinese colleagues and master classes. Jones will be working with Chinese brass players and teachers as well as performing in concerts that include an evening recital at the famed Beijing Central Conservatory, as well as performances in Tianjin and Lanzhou. This will be Jones’ fourth tour of China following earlier appearances in Beijing, Tianjin, Weihai, Weifang, Yantai, Jinan and Nanjing. He has held the position of visiting professor of music at the Tianjin Conservatory since 2001 and has hosted his counterpart, professor Chen Rui from Tianjin, at Truman.
