Professor McKay spent an evening with residents of Branscomb as part of an initiative to encourage students and faculty to get to know each other outside of the classroom.
Professor Lindsey is interviewed on his military background, his interactions with the South, and how those have impacted his past works and his most recent work We Come to Our Senses.
Professor Muse was also joined by a student who lost his brother in suicide. In honor of Suicide Awareness Week and Month, Active Minds hosts a speakout/panel event between intellectuals in the field and students who have been affected by suicide. Each year, 1,100 college students commit suicide and we aim to enlighten Vanderbilt students about the statistics so the community can be stronger, healthier, and know how to act in situations with suicidal friends and peers when they arise.
Stark has also recently published an essay “The Unintended Ethics of Henry K. Beecher” in the medical journal, The Lancet.
