 Two Allegheny College professors have received a $35,000 grant to pursue partnerships

Two Allegheny College professors have received a $35,000 grant to pursue partnerships between the Meadville school’s natural sciences and humanities departments.

M. Soledad Caballero, an associate professor of English, and Aimee Knupsky, an associate professor of psychology, will use the National Endowment for the Humanities grant to extend the impact of the humanities in and out of the classroom.

The professors have already formed an academic planning committee of staff and faculty members at the college to develop plans for courses that connect the two departments.

Psychological Science Brown Bag Event 10/20

Please join us THIS FRIDAY, October 20th from 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm in Carnegie 110 for our Psychological Science Brown Bag.


This week, we will look into some recent research to discuss whether Using Social Media to Unwind is helpful, harmful, or both?  If you have ever used Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. to get away, unwind, or connect and experienced the mixed effects of spending time on social media, this is for you! We will discuss research that has looked at effects of social media on productivity, brain activity, self-esteem, mood, and a sense of belongingness. As always, our meetings are open to anyone – so bring a friend and spread the news! There is no need to RSVP.

Light refreshments will be served, but feel free to bring your own lunch!

Here are some resources for those who would like to get a sense of what we will be talking about:

Looking forward to seeing many of you on Friday!
