New APSU Spanish class tackles vampires and zombies

April 3, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The last few years have been rough for Spain. The unemployment rate is close to 30 percent, which has led to daily protests and civil unrest in that European nation. For some scholars, this turmoil helps explain the sudden popularity of vampire and zombie literature in that country.

“Spain is in shambles,” Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, said. “From 2008, the world crisis has hit them hard. When you read a novel from Spain about a zombie apocalypse, it makes you feel like this is happening. You feel the same destruction of society in every aspect.”

16-Year-Old Helps Austin Peay Math Jeopardy Team Win Second Place In Southeast Region

March 31, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – David Zhang’s age seemed problematic. The 16-year-old Kenwood High School student was taking advantage of Austin Peay State University’s dual enrollment program, but instead of signing up for a couple of introductory college courses, he asked to enroll in the most advanced undergraduate mathematics classes offered by the University – differential equations and complex analysis.

“Complex analysis is the highest undergraduate course in the math department,” Dr. Ben Ntatin, APSU associate professor of mathematics, said. “I was scared to give him a waiver at first. But he’s easily the best student.”

Dodji Kuwonu, David Zhang and Benjamin D. Firth led the APSU Math Jeopardy Team to a second place win at the Mathematics Association of Mathematics south-east sectional annual meeting.

Historian to discuss new view of Andrew Jackson at APSU on April 9th

March 26, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Many Americans view Andrew Jackson as a frontiersman who fought duels, killed Indians and stole another man’s wife. Historians have traditionally presented Jackson as a man who struggled to overcome obstacles and helped create a more democratic United States.

In his compelling new biography of Jackson published by LSU Press, historian Mark R. Cheathem argues for a reassessment of these long-held views, suggesting that in fact “Old Hickory” lived as an elite Southern gentleman.
