Faculty Member Meets with New Librarian of Congress
SLIS Assistant Professor Emad Khazraee, Ph.D., presented a report on the National Archive of Afghanistan (NAA) to Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden and Carnegie Corporation president Vartan Gregorian on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2016, at a reception in Washington, D.C. SLIS Director Kendra Albright, Ph.D., accompanied Khazraee for the presentation.
The report addresses the efforts of Khazraee and others to organize and supervise a team of international scholars to travel to Afghanistan (April 13 - May 4, 2016) to train the staff of the National Archive of Afghanistan in preservation and cataloging of manuscripts. The project was funded by The Islamic Manuscript Association at University of Cambridge, UK, and Roshan Institute for Persian Studies at University of Maryland.
There’s a Kent State alumna behind the card Jason and Kylie Kelce selected for their family’s 2023 holiday greeting: Megan Cash, ’13. She designed the festive plaid template “Madras” for design marketplace/online retailer Minted.
“The Kelce family went on Minted and chose my card out of a thousand different designs,” Cash said in an interview with Fox 8 Cleveland. “They worked with them to change the color to match the Philadelphia Eagles green.”
Ten months after a train carrying hazardous materials derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, the consequences are still unfolding, but as national media have moved onto covering other stories, a news gap has emerged. Four Kent State journalism seniors have been filling that gap.
Through actively pursuing opportunities to make connections and market herself, Kent State alumna Grace Petitijean, ’21, has found a fulfilling communication-based career she is passionate about. As a Copywriter for FCB Health New York, part of the IPG Health Network, Grace takes high-science medical content and crafts messages that tailor the information to be understood by the general public, ensuring everyone has equal access to health information.
