Edward Lamere '11
Edward Lamere ’11 Exploring Physics Forces
Four main forces govern the behavior of all matter in the world around us: gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear and weak nuclear. Physicists believe that, at large enough energies, these four forces can be described by a single theory rather than four separate theories. Working for his second summer under Professor of Physics Brian Collett and Professor of Physics Gordon Jones, Edward Lamere ’11 is working on a project to increase the accuracy of an experiment that links the electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces called aCORN.

Louis Boguchwal '12
The Rabbit and The Fox: A Mathematical Fable
In the forest, populations of rabbits and foxes change relative to one another. Mathematicians model these population fluctuations using differential equations. But mathematical predator-prey models have limitations; for example, the models do not account for rabbits and foxes traversing different paths from water to food source. Combining differential equations and network optimization, Louis Boguchwal ’12 hopes to improve these standard models with guidance from Assistant Professor of Mathematics Andrew Dykstra. More ...
Randall Mason '11
A Glimpse into the Gay Black World
Edgy, scary, stylish, sinful: gay culture is viewed in different ways by different communities in the United States. But for black men in the LGBTQQI community, their doubly marginalized status creates tensions in all of the communities to which they belong. Working with Associate Professor of Africana Studies Angel Nieves, Randall Mason ’11 is using his Emerson grant to investigate the lives of black gay men. More ...
The trip concluded with a visit to Landmannalaugar in central Iceland.
Iceland's Weather Offers a Little of Everything
Nora Grenfell '12 reports on a 15-day field study trip to Iceland, led by Upson Chair for Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury. More ...

Bourne Braves Internship a Hit for Dan Kroening '11
From the pitchers’ mound to the concession stand, Daniel Kroening ’11 can’t get enough baseball. One may think that the 33 games of the varsity baseball season and playing in a local summer league would sate his thirst for the great American pastime, but Kroening just keeps coming back for more. Kroening is learning more about the behind-the-scenes elements of the game in his internship with amateur baseball league franchise the Bourne Braves. More ...

Bolger '11 Develops Safe Zone Workshop Materials

A small but significant meeting takes place on a recent Saturday afternoon; it is the Safe Zone workshop. People often with limited exposures to the gay community attend the workshop to be updated on appropriate vocabulary and learn about their own biases regarding the LGBT community. Megan Bolger ’11 is ensuring that this essential form of student-driven education lives on at Hamilton.  More ...

Backcountry Camping Tour Highlights Second Week
This is Nora Grenfell's '12 third report from a field study in Iceland.

Our backcountry camping tour of Iceland began our second week. Prior to that, we had been staying in hostels around the capital area, but come Sunday we piled our packs in a bus and prepared for a week on the road. Our bus was nicely equipped with a cooking trailer, and we were accompanied by Sola, our cook (and her daughter Sofia, whose English put us all to shame) our driver, Franz, and our guide, Jon, who has known Professor Tewksbury for more than 30 years! More ...

From Ancient to Animation: Discovering Japanese Heroines
Many Americans underestimate the art of Japanese animation known as anime. Not only is anime a multi-billion-dollar industry in the United States alone, but it reincarnates important aspects of Japanese culture that may not otherwise be as accessible to American audiences. Alex Benkhart ’11 is investigating the characteristics and popularity of the Japanese heroine that echoes back to earlier tenets of Japanese culture. More ...

First Days in Iceland
Nora Grenfell '12 is providing updates from Iceland, where Upson Chair for Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury is leading eight Hamilton students and nine students from SUNY Oneonta in a 15-day field study.

Our trip began with a 9 p.m. flight from Boston’s Logan international airport, and ended with us arriving four time zones ahead of New York in Iceland at 6:30 a.m. We hit the ground running, driving from Keflavik airport to Reykjavik across the Reykjanes ridge. As we drove, we observed the oldest rocks in Iceland. Since the island has been built up by magma rising from the mid-Atlantic ridge, the oldest rocks are at the edges of Iceland while the youngest land lies in the center on the volcanically active zone. So far we have been able to observe both the older zones in Iceland and areas where there has been volcanic activity as recently as 30 years ago. More ...
Tongxin Lu '11
The Past and Future of Catholics in China
Over the past 60 years, the People’s Republic of China has had a complicated relationship with the Catholic Church. Since the communist state first obliterated almost all religious representation, it has gradually opened up. Funded by a Levitt grant and with the guidance of Professor of History Douglas Ambrose, Tongxin Lu ’11 is evaluating the status and future of the Catholic Church in China. More ...
