Professor of History Matthew G. Stanard

Dr. Stanard recently returned to Belgium for a brief research visit.  His subject: the colonial era’s effects on Belgium after 1960, the year the Belgian Congo gained its independence.  One question guiding his research is the meaning of pro-colonial monuments in Belgium, including one such sculpture dedicated to local colonial “pioneers” that still stands today in Ixelles, a commune of Brussels. Not unlike Confederate monuments in the U.S., these monuments in Belgium have come in for mounting criticism in recent years.

Dr. Stanard also recently published two essays on the historiography of European overseas imperialism, both through international collaborations. The first of these new publications is “‘Il passato (coloniale) non è affatto morto, anzi non è nemmeno passato’: la storia dell’imperialismo, la decolonizzazione e le culture europee dopo il 1945,” a translation of one of Stanard’s recent essays, which was rendered into Italian by Guido Mattia Gallerani.  It appeared in a special issue of _Scritture Migranti: Rivista di Scambi Interculturali_ titled “Europa/Europe,” published by Mucchi Editore out of Modena, Italy.  Stanard also published “Post-1945 Colonial Historiography and the New Imperial History,” in _The Colonial Past in History Textbooks: Historical and Social Psychological Perspectives_, an edited collection put together by Karel Van Nieuwenhuyse of KU Leuven (Belgium) and Joaquim Pirès Valentim of University of Coimbra (Portugal).

Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing Cindy Johnson

Dr. Johnson recently presented at the International Association of Clinical Simulation and Nursing conference in Toronto, Canada.  The title of her presentation was “The effect of deliberate practice and high-fidelity simulation on psychomotor skill retention in pre-licensure nursing education: A mixed methods study.”

Dr. Johnson and Dr. Katie Morales, Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing, were appointed to the American Heart Association Greater Southeast Regional Emergency Cardiovascular Care Education Subcommittee.

Professor of Teacher Education Mary C. Clement

Dr. Clement has published her 14th book, “What Successful Teachers Do”, by Rowman and Littlefield Education, Lanham, MD. Additionally, Dr. Clement taught two graduate courses at Living Rock Teacher Training Institute in Beijing, China, last summer. The courses were assessment and supervision, both for teachers and principals. Each class included Dr. Clement’s workshops on creating mentoring programs and mentoring of faculty. Her 2011 book, “The Mentor Program Kit”, was a text for both courses.

Director of Environmental Studies and Associate Professor of Anthropology Brian Campbell

Dr. Campbell has been invited to showcase an exhibit of his Agricultural Biodiversity Conservation project (the Berry ABC Project, https://sites.berry.edu/abc/) at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta in their newest traveling exhibition – FOOD: Our Global Kitchen (created by the American Museum of Natural History.) He will work with current Berry College student and ABC Project Research Assistant, Conlan DeLorenzo, and Berry alum, Emily Cornell, to simulate a seed swap and educate visitors on agricultural biodiversity conservation, seed saving methods, and related nutritional and agricultural information.

Not just a job

Two weeks as a 12-year old patient at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta set Melody Dreyer on a dream path to becoming a pediatric nurse – in that same prestigious institution. A decade later, before she’d even completed her Berry nursing degree, she had a job offer to do just that.
