Students from Dr. Debra Jackson’s Spring 2018 Sexual Ethics course teamed up with Club GEN (Gender Equality Now), The Consent Project, and the LGBTQ+ Network to host a Sexual Ethics Educational Fair on April 24, 2018.
The students created interactive exhibits to educate the campus community about a variety of topics such as taking responsibility for our sexual health, understanding sexual minorities, as well as the importance of sexual consent. Representatives from community organizations were also present including Planned Parenthood, the Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault, and the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity.
The Black & White Photography Show was held during the Fall Semester, at the White Room Gallery. It featured black and white photographs from ART 3230 students who were instructed by Jason Roberts Dobrin.
During the Spring 2018 semester, Dr. Dustin Knepp (Modern Languages & Literatures) taught an Acting in Spanish class. The class visited Arvin, CA to present well-known children's plays (Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs) in Spanish to local bilingual school children (K-6).

Throughout the fall semester student researchers in Dr. Kate Mulry's course, HIST 3650: Science, Medicine, and Empire in the Atlantic World, have been researching, writing, and producing their original research for a class podcast. Each student will feature their original research in individual 15-minute episodes. The class podcast was created in the context of the course Science, Medicine, and Empire in the Atlantic World, which introduced students to the major themes of, and approaches to, the entangled histories of empire, science, and medicine in the early modern Atlantic world (1500-1800). In the course students examined the role of science and medicine in creating, upholding, and governing empires.
Students also investigated how imperial expansion and participants around the Atlantic, including Amerindians, free and enslaved Africans, and women, transformed and shaped emerging scientific and medical ideas. The aim of the podcast is to encourage students to think about how to translate their research projects for an audience beyond the classroom. Experimenting with a podcast has motivated the class to present their research in a fun, engaging way; it has emphasized skills in storytelling while maintaining a high scholarly standard.
The class secured the assistance of Flynt Burton, a student in CSUB’s Department of Music, for their podcast. Burton worked the class to create a unique sound for the podcast. Burton composed two excerpts for the podcast, including a piano trio and wind quartet to complement the themes and content of the podcast. With the assistance of Anthony Bolanos, of the Faculty Teaching and Learning Center, the students recorded rough cuts of their episodes during the first week of December 2017. The students are also the recipients of an undergraduate research grant from the Dean’s office which will enable them to secure a dedicated platform to host the podcast.
