Jones, Latrell and Owen Promoted to Rank of Professor, Effective July 1

Three Hamilton College faculty members will be promoted to the rank of professor, effective July 1. Associate professors Gordon Jones, physics; Craig Latrell, theatre; and Ann Owen, economics, will receive the title of professor.

Gordon Jones
Gordon Jones
Gordon Jones earned his master's and doctorate in nuclear physics from Princeton University. His research interests include using neutrons to study fundamental symmetries and polarizing neutrons for use in materials science. On the fundamental side, Jones studies time reversal symmetry and weak interactions in nuclei. On the applied side, Jones builds devices used to understand magnetic materials such as the read heads in computer hard drives. His published papers appear in a range of journals including Physical Review C, Journal of Applied Crystalography, and Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Prior to coming to Hamilton in 1999, Jones worked as a NRC Post-Doc, NIST, and a visiting scientist at Indiana University.

Craig Latrell
Craig Latrell
Craig Latrell, who came to Hamilton in 2000, previously taught at the National University of Singapore, University of Denver, and Cornish College of the Arts. A former Fulbright Senior Lecturer in Indonesia, he holds a DFA from the Yale School of Drama.  Latrell has published articles in TDR: The Drama Review, Asian Theatre Journal and Converging Interests: Traders, Travelers and Tourists in Southeast Asia, edited by J. Forshee (University of California, Berkeley, 1999). His most recent, "Exotic Dancing: Performing Tribal and Regional Identities in East Malaysia's Cultural Villages," in TDR, resulted from his research supported by the Mellon Foundation and the Christian Johnson Foundation. Latrell also served on the Advisory Board and contributed entries to the Encyclopedia of Asian Theatre (Greenwood Press, 2007). He has worked as a director in the Pacific Northwest and in Southeast Asia.

Ann Owen
Ann Owen
Ann Owen, formerly a Federal Reserve economist, earned a Ph.D. from Brown University and an M.B.A. from Babson College. She has diverse research interests and has published papers on long-run growth and income distribution as well as teaching economics to undergraduates. Recent publications include Social Science Quarterly and International Review of Economics Education. Owen's current research projects include an examination of how the process of economic growth varies across countries, a study of the effect of individuals' knowledge about the environment on their pro-environment behaviors and an investigation into the differential impact of course grades on male and female students' propensity to study economics. She teaches courses in economic growth, monetary policy, macroeconomic theory and statistics. Owen also serves as director of the Sustainability Program at the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.
