Lynn Rose, associate professor of history, had dozens of her entries and commentaries published in the five-volume Encyclopedia of Disability (Sage Publications, 2006), for which she served as an International Advisory Board Member. With special thanks to Patrick Lecaque, director of the Center for International Education (CIE) and professor of French, and his staff at the CIE, Rose, together with Steven Reschly, associate professor of history, facilitated “The Sacred Feminine in Greece,” a study abroad course, in June 2006. On July 6, 2006, Rose presented “Teaching Gilgamesh: The Historical Context of Obliteration” at the International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, in Tunis, Tunisia. The resulting essay, “Gilgamesh in the Historical Context of Archaeology and Imperialism,” co-authored with Truman history majors Shannon Crowder, a senior from Austin, Texas; Shahrbonu Rezaiekhaligh, a junior from Kansas City, Mo.; and Jennifer Roberts, a senior from Bloomington, Ill.; is undergoing peer review for publication in the International Journal of the Humanities. Rose is currently working on a translation and commentary of a Greek and Latin fragment (Jacoby, FGRH Annon. 744) on the destruction of Carthage, for Brill Academic Publishers.

Jerrold Hirsch, professor of history, has an essay, “‘Cultural Strategies’: The Seegers and B.A. Botkin as Friends and Allies,” forthcoming in Ruth Crawford Seeger’s Worlds: Innovation and Tradition in Twentieth-century American Music, ed.
