Online Resilience Survey

Contributed by: Brandon Miller
Published: Wednesday, 20 March 2019 4:30 PM

The ability to bounce back from stressful life events, known also as resilience, is a popular topic among mental health providers and researchers, yet information about resilience and how to assess it in LGBTQ+ individuals is limited. Researchers at Ball State University want to bridge that gap by inviting anyone 18 years of age or older, regardless of sexual or gender identity, to complete this 15-minute anonymous survey. If you complete the survey you will have the option to enter a drawing for 1 of 10 Amazon gift cards, each worth $10. You can click here to learn more or complete the survey. If you have questions, you may contact Brandon Miller.

Honors College Lecture March 25 -- Robin Hood and Post-Medieval Christmastime Literature

Contributed by: Coralee Young
Published: Friday, 01 March 2019 7:00 AM

This once-monthly lecture series welcomes students and faculty to come together and explore a current topic of interest to the Honors College community. All persons within the Ball State University community are welcome to attend and participate. Join us on Monday, March 25, at 4PM in BB 100 for a discussion with the Reed D. Voran Distinguished Professor of Honors Humanities and Professor of English, Dr. Alex Kaufman, about “Robin Hood and Christmas”

“Now mustards, braun, roast beef and plumb pies”:

Robin Hood and Post-Medieval Christmastime Literature

This talk will explore the ways in which Robin Hood’s more modern Christmastime literature embraced both the conservative nature of Robin Hood’s past lives with radical re-workings of the legend to create fanciful works of literature and art that supported not the transgressive nature of outlaw politics or ideology but rather the more traditional and value driven message of Christmas in Great Britain and America: peace on earth, and good will toward men.

Dr. Kaufman teaches courses on Robin Hood, outlaws and banditry, historical literature, medieval literature, and medievalism.
