SIUE History Prof Manuel Working on Biofuels Book? with NCERC2014-10-30 15:29:52 SIUE.edu
Jeffrey T. Manuel, assistant professor in Southern Illinois University Edwardsville?s Department of Historical Studies within the College of Arts and Sciences, is teaming up with the NCERC at SIUE to record the history of alcohol-based fuels in Illinois.
?Farmers, researchers, business leaders, politicians, and many others have been working to build Illinois? biofuels industry for decades,? Manuel said. ?This is an important but overlooked aspect of the state’s agricultural and business history.
?Fuel alcohol has been suggested as a promising alternative to oil and gas for over a century. My research asks why Americans have repeatedly turned to alcohol fuel as an alternative energy source and why earlier efforts to promote alcohol fuels were unsuccessful.?
The NCERC at SIUE selected Manuel?s project for its first faculty fellowship award, which provided him with a course release to free time for research and interviews. The Center?s faculty fellowship program is sponsored by the Illinois Corn Marketing Board to foster collaborative research between the NCERC and the University community.
?We truly appreciate the Illinois Corn Growers? support of this collaborative relationship, and we are excited to partner with Dr. Manuel on his project,? said NCERC Director John Caupert. ?The biofuels industry has a long and fascinating history, with deep roots in Illinois. Dr. Manuel?s work will shed light on the industry?s evolution, and demonstrate the resilience and innovation of the industry?s past and present pioneers.?
Manuel?s work will include in-depth interviews of key players in the biofuels industry, which will be recorded and archived at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield as part of the Agriculture in Illinois oral history collection. The interviews will serve as a starting point for a planned book about the history of fuel alcohol in America.
?I believe my research will add a valuable historical perspective to SIUE?s existing strengths in biofuels research,? Manuel said. ?I hope that SIUE can become a world leader in a multidisciplinary study of biofuels as we work to create this valuable record for the general public and future researchers.?
A native of Anoka, Minn., Manuel earned a bachelor?s in history and economics from Northwestern University in 2001. He achieved a doctorate in history from the University of Minnesota in 2009.
Manuel?s research interests focus on the history of resource industries in the modern U.S. He is especially interested in relationships between resource industries, the environment, technology and politics.
Manuel?s first book, ?North Country Blues: The Struggle to Sustain Mining on Minnesota’s Iron Range, 1915-2000,? is under contract with the University of Minnesota Press. His research on the history of the iron ore industry has also appeared in Technology and Culture and several forthcoming edited collections. This research has been supported by grants and fellowships including a STEP Grant from SIUE?s Office of Research and Projects and the University of Minnesota?s Norman Johnson Dewitt Fellowship.
?I have close family ties to agriculture and agribusiness,? Manuel said. ?My dad is an oats broker, my brother trades wheat, and my mom grew up on a small family farm in Minnesota. So ethanol research is bringing me back to the family business in an interesting way.?
The NCERC is now accepting applications for 2015-2016 Faculty Fellowships. Funding is available to support course buyouts and other research costs for SIUE faculty interested in research collaboration with the NCERC. Applications are due Friday, Dec. 19, and can be found online.Read Full Story ...

Best-Selling Author Rosalind Wiseman to Speak at SIUE?s Arts & Issues2014-10-30 14:46:14 SIUE.edu
One of the nation?s most famous educators and bullying experts will speak about civility and self-respect Thursday, Nov. 20 on the campus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Rosalind Wiseman is the author of the best seller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World, which was the basis for the movie, ?Mean Girls.? She will give the presentation ?Owning up: Creating a Culture of Dignity in your School and Community? at 7:30 p.m. in the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom.
Wiseman is an internationally known educator who uses education and advocates social justice to help youth, parents and educators deal with the social challenges facing young people today. She is the author of the comprehensive social justice program for grades 6-12, Owning Up Curriculum, which is in use across the country.
Other recent books by the bullying expert include:
? Boys, Girls & Other Hazardous Materials, (2010)
? Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World, (2013)
In Anderson Cooper?s special CNN report: ?Bullying It Stops Here? (Part 1 of 4), Wiseman said:
?(Bullying) is what I?ve been writing and teaching about for 20 years. Teachers, administrators and parents will look at this (bullying) and say, ?Well, that?s just the way it is. That?s the way human beings are.? But the thing we have to consistently say to people is that degrading people is never right. It always comes down to whether you are being degraded by race, your socio-economic status, from where you come from, from your sexual orientation or from your perceived sexual orientation.?
Wiseman annually works with tens of thousands of students, educators, parents, counselors, coaches and administrators to create communities based on the belief that each person has a responsibility to treat themselves and others with dignity.

SIUE?s Office of International Affairs Moves to Provost?s Oversight2014-10-30 11:53:56 SIUE.edu
The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees approved the renaming of SIUE?s Office of International Student and Scholar Services to the Office of International Affairs. The board acted at its regularly scheduled meeting Wednesday, Oct. 29, in the Morris University Center?s Meridian Ballroom on the Edwardsville campus.
The office of international affairs? reporting structure also will change as it moves from the vice chancellor of student affairs to the office of the provost and academic affairs. The number of personnel staffing the office will remain the same.
?This shift will allow us to focus on the central mission of global engagement and learning,? said Parviz Ansari, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. ?The office of international affairs will work with both academic and non-academic units in SIUE?s pursuit of the globalization of its campuses.
?Moving the office under the provost?s direction will allow for greater emphasis on international recruitment, research and collaborations, work and study abroad opportunities, and comprehensive planning for global education as part of curricular requirements.?
The office of international affairs will support functions in five primary areas:
?Today, international students comprise approximately three percent of the SIUE student population,? Ansari said. ?The percentage of students who study abroad is even smaller. Our goal is to expand these numbers. We have been making consistent progress in increasing the number of international students on campus for the past five semesters and look forward to continued growth in this area.
?The new office of international affairs will also be responsible for facilitating the development of new partnerships with selected international universities and industries for the purposes of research and scholarship and student internship opportunities.?Read Full Story ...
