Faculty members publish books and chapters

Several CC faculty members have recently published books and chapters. Among them:

  • Sarah Hautzinger, associate professor and chair of anthropology, authored the book “Violence in the City of Women: Police and Batterers in Bahia, Brazil” (University of California Press, $21.95). The book, which is based on Hautzinger’s intensive field study and own personal encounters in the Brazilian city, studies the criminalization of men’s violence against female partners in the area. Hautzinger focuses on the gendered conflict and power struggles that have resulted from the advent of an all-female police force dedicated to protecting women from domestic abuse in the city.
  • Appalled, frustrated, and sometimes amused by what they found in their inboxes, Jane Hilberry, professor of English, and Mary Lynn Pulley wrote Get Smart! (Get Smart! Publishing, $14.95) to make e-mailing foolproof. Their short, readable guide is designed to make individuals aware of how e-mail shapes professional images. In addition, it helps organizations ward off the miscommunications, inefficiencies and legal issues that e-mail can engender. The book offers a set of seven simple guidelines to ensure intelligent e-mail practices, along with a self-assessment and several apt New Yorker cartoons.
  • Steve Fleck, professor and chair of sports science, wrote two books used for courses at universities: “Strength Principles, Methodologies for Training (Forca Principos Methodologicos Para O Treinamento)” ( Phorte Editora), published in Portuguese, and “Optimizing Strength Training Designing Nonlinear Periodization Workouts” (Human Kinetics), published in English but presently being translated into Portuguese. Fleck's 2004 book "Designing Resistance Training Programs, Third Edition" (Human Kinetics) is now being translated into Vietnamese. It is also published in English, Greek, Portuguese and Japanese.
  • Charlotte Mendoza, professor of education, wrote a chapter for the book “Taking Teaching Seriously: How Liberal Arts Colleges Prepare Teachers to Meet Today's Educational Challenges in Schools” (Paradigm Publishers), edited by Christopher Bjork, Heidi Ross and D. Kay Johnston. Her chapter, titled "A Distinctive Profile: Liberal Arts Graduates as Teachers," reports a follow-up study of a decade of CC graduates (undergraduates and master of arts in teaching students who completed their undergraduate degree at Colorado College) who have become teachers. Among the findings are that CC students stay in the teaching field with a higher- than-average retention rate and tend to provide leadership and creativity to their profession.
