9/23/2014 - CLA Gosnell Lecture Series
September 23, 2014
CLA Gosnell Lecture SeriesDouglas WoodwardUniversity of South CarolinaDarla Moore School of BusinessDepartment of EconomicsRochester's Regional Economic Resilience: Past, Present and FutureProfessor Doug Woodward will return to his home town to offer an original assessment of the Rochester area's economic prospects. The lecture will begin with reflections on growing up in the Rochester area during the economic heyday of the 1950s and 1960s. He will then briefly review Rochester' economic history, from the rise and fall of the flower mill cluster in the 19th century to the remarkable re-emergence as a wealthy city built around world class companies in the 20th century. In the early 21st century Rochester is again in transition. Professor Woodward will draw upon the latest theories of regional economic growth to help us better discern Rochester's future. Recent work in regional economic growth emphasizes the importance of the local talent pool, especially technically educated labor, as a pivotal, long-run driver of competiveness and growth. The local quality of life is critical to attracting and retaining this kind of talent. Rochester will rise again to the extent that it has the assets needed to advance in increasingly competitive regional and global economy.To demonstrate the strength of Rochester's competitiveness today, Professor Woodward will present the critical measures of economic performance: educational attainment (with a focus on STEM, engineering, and professional education), patenting activity, research and development spending, and local measures of well-being. These long-run indicators of successful economic resilience will be contrasted with seven “sister” cities that are also undergoing major transitions: Syracuse, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Greenville, and Professor Woodward current home town: Columbia, SC. By these measures, Rochester's resilience appears to be promising.(Tuesday, September 23rd, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM -Golisano Auditorium)
9/24/2014 - The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Associate Professor: Why we need post-tenure mentoring
September 24, 2014
“The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Associate Professor: Why we need post-tenure mentoring” is an interactive presentation/discussion of facts about associate professors and promotion in the U.S.: reasons for job dissatisfaction, differences between men and women in time-to-promotion, initiatives for new paths to promotion, and various approaches to post-tenure mentoring. The event is especially appropriate for associate professors considering promotion and potential mentors to post-tenure faculty.This is the first in a series of fall presentations and workshops on post-tenure mentoring, to be followed by Women and Promotion: Challenges and paths forward (October) and Mid-Career Planning for Faculty (November). The last of these will help associate professors and mentors design a path to promotion.These presentations and workshops are supported by a CONNECT grant, “Post-Tenure Mentoring.” Pat Scanlon, the principal investigator, is professor and chair of the Department of Communication, College of Liberal Arts. This is a RIT Only event. (Wednesday, September 24th, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM - Bamboo Room, Center for Campus Life )
9/24/2014 - Stan McKenzie Salon
September 24, 2014
Peter Ferran: "Bertolt Brecht, 20thC Dramatic Mythographer" This presentation introduces the controversial German dramatist Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) to a non-specialist audience, offering a brief overview of his life, a synoptic description of his "epic theatre" theory, and an interpretive estimation of a selection of his plays. It has a thesis: "Brecht's dramatic art, represented by his more than forty plays, his theory, and his theatre work as director, adapter, and teacher, has created a gallery of dramatis personae whose fictional identities and stories may be considered myths for the 20th century. Among these modern mythic figures: Mother Courage, Macheath, Galileo, Arturo Ui, Joan of Arc, and The Good Person of Szechwan."(Wednesday, September 24th, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM - Stan Mckenzie Commons (building 6) )

October 231829 Room11-12:30 pmBarbara PhillipsProfessor of MarketingUniversity of SaskatchewanEdwards School of BusinessTertium Quid: Explorations in Visual Brand IdentityWhy can consumers identify a television commercial for Target within a few seconds without seeing the brand name? Would a consumer notice if a can of Campbell's soup were placed in a Progresso ad? Is the Nike swoosh a more effective logo than the Sprite splash? Nonverbal elements play a prominent role in branding, but little attention has been given to the holistic visual style of a brand in academic research. This presentation explores the concept of visual brand identity (VBI) using a new definition adapted from legal scholarship. Consumers' understanding of VBI is compared to the perceptions of professionals who create brand identity on Madison Avenue. In addition, the superiority of visual logos is discarded in favor of a category-based theory of effectiveness. Implications for managing visual branding and for future research on brand identity are discussed.(Thursday, October 23rd, 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM -1829 Room)
