Pearl Ponce, Associate Professor in the Department of History, is pleased to announce that her book on Bleeding Kansas has been released. Entitled To Govern the Devil in Hell: The Political Crisis in Territorial Kansas, it investigates the turmoil Kansas Territory experienced in the 1850s through the prism of governance. At issue in Kansas was whether the territory would join the Union as a slave or free state. The stakes were so high for the country that what began as a typical election scandal in 1854 escalated until this small territory had two competing governments and constitutions and a populace so driven by their ideological differences that they turned to violence in 1856 to try and settle them.

I am currently interested in general surgery and plastic surgery as specializations are concerned, but I am staying open to all experiences in medical school. I hope to be able to return to my home country of Nigeria to contribute to the betterment of health care system there. Having lived in Nigeria for 18 years of my life, I am well aware of the need for better health care professionals and facilities, and would like to set up a practice there as well.

Sarah Brylinksy, Communications Management and Design ’08, recognized in Sierra Magazine for her “Aha Moment” here at IC.
Below is an excerpt from her interview:
A couple of months into a freshman seminar, Sarah Brylinsky sat through a PowerPoint presentation. It wasn't much more than a series of line charts from a 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. But the charts had pluck.

King, the former chief scientific adviser to the British government: "In my view, climate change is the most severe problem that we are facing today--more serious even than the threat of terrorism."
