* Photographer on Campus

A photographer will be on campus for a photo shoot Wednesday, April 22, through Friday, April 24. UE students and faculty have always been very cooperative and accommodating during previous shoots. As a result, many great photos have been taken for UE publications. Kim McDonald will try to notify faculty in advance if photos will be taken in a particular class; however, weather often can force the shoot inside, and it is possible that last minute requests will be made. If faculty members know that they will be giving a test or do not wish to be bothered either of these days, please inform Kim McDonald at ext. 2683 and the classroom will be avoided.

Spring is a busy season for the Admissions Office with numerous visitors to campus. We have three scheduled visit days on April 11th, April 24th, and May 15th.

* Department of Theatre presents A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play opened on Broadway in 1947 and cemented Tennessee Williams as one of America’s greatest playwrights.  In the steamy heat of the French Quarter, Blanche DuBois arrives on the doorstep of her younger sister, Stella, with a trunk of old furs and a romantic, yet mysterious, portrait of her life as a Southern belle in Mississippi.  The tension between Blanche and Stella’s brutish husband, Stanley, grows as thick as the humid New Orleans’ night air.  Ultimately, a mix of desperation and primal passion ignites an explosive encounter resulting in the shattering of the last vestiges of Blanche’s genteel illusions.

A fresh perspective on drawing with perspective: why some individuals' drawings are more accurate than others are
We performed a series of experiments that address why some individuals draw more accurately than others did.  In our laboratory drawing task, we asked participants to remember and subsequently report the width of a cuboid that was briefly presented on a computer screen. We manipulated the objects by rotating them, providing various amounts of 3D context, and asking the participant to report the physical (i.e., the measurable width if the object were not rotated away) or perceived (i.e., the retinal image as would be drawn from the participant’s perspective) width of the object.  Statistical analyses revealed a common factor across all of our task manipulations that were related to participants’ overall “drawing” accuracy.  Factors that reflected our manipulations also emerged.  Differences in individuals tendencies to systemize and empathize, level of training in realistic drawing, and self-reported drawing ability interacted both with each other and particular facets of our drawing task.  We found that individuals who have taken a class on drawing make more accurate perspective-width judgments than those who have not.  We also found that experience in an art class, individual differences in a specific personality trait, and self-appraised drawing ability interact to explain a large amount of the variability of the precision of individuals’ width judgments on drawing tasks.  Our results may reflect a broader impact of these factors on the veridicality of individuals' memories of objects.

* History Spring Lecture: The Irishness of Georgia O'Keeffe April 23rd

The History Department welcomes Dr. Eamonn Wall as the speaker for this year's Spring Lecture, set for April 23, at 4 p.m.in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center. The title of Wall's lecture is "The Irishness of Georgia O'Keeffe: One Afternoon in Abiquiu, NM."

In his lecture, Wall will recount an afternoon spent visiting O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu, New Mexico. O'Keeffe, one of the greatest twentieth century American artists, was born into a part Irish American family in Wisconsin, and had settled in New Mexico in 1949 after spending many years in New York. Working on a study of Irish American writers, artists, and musicians, Wall had come to O'Keeffe's home in search of the Irish American elements in her work. The visit to O'Keeffe's home, and time spent the following day in Cerrillos, the hometown of James Patrick McNulty, who managed the nearby Tiffany mine, forced him to further refine and enlarge ideas of belonging and identity.

Wall is the author of Writing the Irish West: Ecologies and Traditions (Notre Dame, 2011) and From the Sin-e Cafe to the Black Hills: Notes on the New Irish (Wisconsin, 2000). In addition, he has published seven volumes of poetry including the recently published Junction City: New and Selected Poems 1990-2015 (Salmon Poetry, 2015). His lecture is part of a new study of Irish and Irish American writers, artists, and musicians. Wall is Smurfit-Stone Professor of Irish Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

* Kaczmarski leads UE Baseball to 9-6 win over NKU

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Evansville baseball team (21-16) recorded their third straight win with a 9-6 victory over Northern Kentucky (13-24) on Wednesday night. Outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski tallied three hits for UE with two runs scored, a home run, and two runs batted in. Starting pitcher Ryan Billo (5-1) yielded just two runs in 5.2 innings for the victory.

“It was a crazy midweek game but I thought we got a good pitching performance from Billo,” said Evansville head coach Wes Carroll. “Kevin is not throwing away at bats and staying locked in throughout the entire game. That is why he is being rewarded with the success he is having.”

UE broke the scoreless tie in the third with three runs. Outfielder Josh Jyawook brought the first run in on a bases loaded fielder’s choice, Kevin Kaczmarski tacked on another with an RBI double and infielder Jonathan Ramon rounded out the scoring with a run producing fielder’s choice. Ahead 3-0, the Aces added to their lead in the fourth with a sacrifice fly from outfielder Jarod Perry and another RBI single from Jyawook.

Down 5-0, NKU rallied back with a three-run, fifth inning home run from outfielder Cody Kuzniczci.

Leading by two, UE tallied another pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth on a bases loaded walk from infielder Stewart Nelson and a Perry single to left field.

Trailing 7-3, the Norse drew a run closer with a Quint Heady single in the sixth. Reliever Matt Rodgers then entered the game with the bases loaded and two outs. Rodgers induced an infield pop up to second but the ball fell down for a hit, scoring two runs.

Up 7-6, UE inched further ahead with an RBI triple from Ramon in the home half of the sixth. The triple was the fourth in Ramon’s career. NKU threatened again in the seventh but Rodgers kept the bases loaded with an inning ending strikeout of Heady.

Kaczmarski added a solo home run in the eighth and closer Brent Jurceka (seventh save) maintained the 9-6 lead in the final inning for the Aces win.

Perry extended his on base streak to 38 games and hit streak to 14. Jyawook also advanced his hitting streak to 15 games. First baseman Eric McKibban has reached base safely 24 games in a row. Kaczmarski has hit safely in 11 consecutive games. His third inning double gave him 58 in his UE career, now fifth most in program history. Nelson also tied a career-high with three walks.

UE is on the road this weekend for a three-game series at Bradley beginning on Friday, April 24. The Aces next home game is Tuesday, April 28 at 6:00 p.m. First pitch is 6:00 p.m. at Braun Stadium. Adult tickets are $7 as senior/youth tickets are just $5.

* SIU Able to Take Victory Over Aces Softball

Evansville, IN – The University of Evansville Softball Team (10-39, 2-18 MVC) headed to Southern Illinois on Wednesday afternoon to finish up their three game series with the Salukis. Southern Illinois was able to take the victory over the Aces by a score of 4-3. The series started last week when the Aces hosted a doubleheader against the Salukis. They split the double header with the Salukis taking game one by a score of 2-0. UE was able to grab game to by a score of 5-4, which was won in walk off fashion.

UE was able to jump out to a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth when Mariah Ferguson scored when Courtney Land reached on a fielder’s choice. The Salukis responded in the bottom of the 4th with Shaye Harre hit a two run homerun. Sydney Jones followed that up with a solo shot to make the score 3-1 in favor of the Salukis.

Chandra Parr and Danielle Freeman were able to tie it right back up in the top of the fifth when they hit back to back solo homeruns to make the score 3-3 heading into the sixth. In the bottom of the sixth, the Salukis were able to get a run from Jessi Heese when Jessa Thomas singled making it 4-3 in favor of Southern Illinois. The Aces weren’t able to get anything going in the top of the 7th making the final score 4-3 in favor of the Salukis.

Evansville will be back in action this weekend when they take their final road trip of the season to Wichita State to take on the Shockers in a three game series.
