New position and new publication for Roger Adkins '95

Posted By Roger A. Adkins, Monday, August 5, 2019
I have recently accepted a newly created position at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. I will serve (starting in September 2019) as the Executive Director of Global and Career Education, overseeing global learning (study away/abroad, international student and scholar services, ESL programs, and Earlham programs that serve students from across the country, such as the Border Studies program based in Arizona and Mexico) as well as career education (internships, intentional learning outcomes in on-campus student employment, career readiness, professional development, etc.). The move brings me closer to family members who still live in western Ohio and also situates me within a Quaker institution where the community values align very well with my own: promoting peace, social justice, nonconfrontational conflict resolution, and global understanding. I have spent the past four years serving as Director of International and Cultural Education at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, where I have offered a study abroad course on folklore and social justice in England and Scotland. I also recently published a coauthored book chapter on decolonizing approaches in education abroad programming (it appears in Education Abroad and the Undergraduate Experience, edited by Brewer and Ogden, 2019) and am now at work on a few other projects on decolonizing and queering approaches in education abroad. My Hiram education continues to serve me well, and I have found my professional home in liberal arts colleges as well.

Latest Publication/European And UK Travels

Posted By Barbara Hines Cochran, Monday, August 5, 2019
Updated: Sunday, August 25, 2019

My translation from Italian, Three Days in May: A New Columbus Story, originally written in that language by Professor Emerita of History and Geography, Ilaria Luzzana Caraci, was published by Amazon in February 2019. I am now working on the translation of another of her books, this time on the history of explorations and discoveries. Professor Caraci and her husband hosted me for a week in Rome in May 2017, after which I headed to Paris where I spent time in Montmartre, hanging out along the streets below Sacré-Cœur Basilica, and more than 4 hours at the Louvre. I also had the good fortune to go through and around Notre Dame Cathedral again, before it caught fire in April 2019. I then crossed the border into the UK at the Manchester Airport and had a pleasant train ride to Liverpool, where I went to a very high-, positive energy pub for dinner, and the following day to “The Beatles Story” museum, which is located along the Mersey River. From there, I went, again on the train, to Ryhl, Wales, a resort town on the Irish Sea, where I was the guest of retired literary translator, Chantal Low, and her husband, novelist Roderick Low. We traveled all over Northern Wales, to places like the fortress town of Conway, and to the top of the Great Orme, where previous visitors had spelled out, using large rocks, the word “OHIO” (where I currently live) on the side of a high, very green, massive hill. It was, at that moment, a most unwelcome reminder that I would soon have to return home. I spent my 65th birthday touring the entire city of London, after a delightful 3-day B & B tour of the Cotswalds. Also in London, I visited the Sigmund Freud Museum at 20 Maresfield Gardens, where the inventor of psychoanalysis saw a few patients and lived out his final days, after paying massive taxes to the Nazis so he and family members could leave Vienna. The following day, I headed back to the United States.
