From an MTSU professor’s research on Buffy the Vampire Slayer to an interview with NFL quarterback hopeful Logan Kilgore, the newest digital mini-version of MTSU Magazine covers a broad swath of topics for the university’s growing web and app audiences to enjoy.
Available through the MTSU Magazine app for iPads, iPhones and Android devices, the electronic-only version includes several stories with multimedia content that aren’t available in print.
The MTSU Mag app is available in the iTunes store — click the image at right for a direct link — and at Google Play.
The latest mini-edition includes:
- A profile of David Lavery, director of Graduate Studies in English at MTSU, and his quest to craft a new pop culture canon that traverses Wallace Stevens to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
- A conversation with recently graduated MTSU quarterback Logan Kilgore, whose NFL hopes rest on his arm and on his head.
- A more personal look at the impact MTSU’s underwater treadmills have had in providing the next step for many suffering severe mobility impairment.
- An explanation of the placement of the stately lion sculptures outside the Honors College — non-living embodiments of its nobler aspirations.
- An exploration of how The James E. Walker Library and its staff deftly ride the digital humanities wave.
- A visual journey through the eyes of alumnus and MTSU professor Charles Clary, whose art cuts both ways.
- An article detailing the evolution of home economics to the human sciences and the program’s proud tradition at MTSU.
The content included in the mini-magazine also is available online at www.mtsumagazine.com.
The next print edition of MTSU Magazine will reach MTSU alumni and friends by mail in July 2014.
