Voices of Inclusion, History and Activism — Faculty Members Publish and Present Research
March 10, 2017
Cal State Fullerton faculty members are publishing and presenting research on topics including LGBT-supportive workplace policies, Mexican history and political activism by women.
Shaun Pichler, associate professor of management, co-authored “Worker Outcomes of LGBT-Supportive Policies: A Cross-Level Model” published in vol. 36, issue 1 of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal. “The model implies that employees should feel more supported and more fairly treated among firms with LGBT-supportive policies and practices, and that these feelings will be reciprocated,” note the authors in their abstract of the article.
Gayle Brunelle, professor of history, will discuss her book “Murder in the Metro” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, in the Community Meeting Room of the Placentia Library. The book is a tale of intrigue in 1930s Paris and documents the brutal killing of Laetitia Toureaux in an empty, locked subway car. The details of the case were sealed for 101 years.
Jonathan Markley, associate professor of history, will discuss Anzac Day at 7 p.m. Monday, April 24, in the Community Room of the Fullerton Public Library’s conference center. Markley, a New Zealander, will speak about the national day of remembrance — April 25 in Australia and New Zealand — honoring those who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.
Natalie Fousekis, professor of history and director of CSUF’s Center for Oral and Public History, on March 8, offered reflections and analysis from the center’s “Women, Politics, and Activism Since Suffrage” oral history project. The project — a growing collection of 150 interviews — includes the voices of political women and policy-changers from Orange and Los Angeles counties, including 14 from Fullerton.
Stephen Neufeld, associate professor of history and author of “Mexico in Verse,” spoke March 5 at the Fullerton Public Library, about kidnapping for ransom. Joined by author Michael Oates, Neufeld, a Mexican historian, discussed the real-life social, political and economic impact of pandemic kidnappings once reserved for murderous mafias and drug-runners.
