Our Religious Studies Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/MSU-Religious-Studies/293067780721667, is a wonderful means for the department and alumni to keep in touch.
Recently, Erin (Kuhns) Darby, M.A. 2002, let us know that she and Robert recently published an article on the ASOR blog about their excavations in southern Jordan (see photo, above, of some of their finds). You can read her article here: http://asorblog.org/?p=2992
Which reminded me again of our alumna, Laura Pearson, who is in Africa as a member of the Peace Corps. She continues keeping us informed of her activities on her blog, http://totheearthsend.blogspot.com/
Crystal Wilson, one of our department’s student workers, is studying in China for the 2012-13 Academic Year. She’s a Global Studies major, but we consider her one of our own! Here’s her blog:http://awkward-in-china.tumblr.com/ The photo, above, is from her blog.
And, finally, returning to old-fashioned face-to-face connections, we were delighted to see Rose Gorecki (M.A. 2007) when she stopped by earlier this week! She’s been busy in doing archaeology the last few years around the southern U.S.
Please feel free to connect with us any way you like: in person, e-mail, phone, blog, Facebook, mail, or carrier pigeon. We’re always happy to hear from our students, alumni, and friends!
