Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.  Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

Paul O'Higgins
2013 Rohlf Medal Recipient

The Measure of Things: Pattern, Process and Morphometry
Paul O'Higgins is Chair of Anatomy at the University of York, UK, and Head of the Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences, Hull York Medical School. Professor O'Higgins' principal interests concern the links between skeletal morphological variation, phylogeny, function and ontogeny. His earliest work concerned the post natal growth of the skull and spine in mice and apes and contributed to the development of an important new class of statistical and graphical methods for the analysis of form differences in biology, Geometric Morphometrics. A key feature of his research has been the statistical analysis of structure in addressing the biological significance of skeletal variation. An important contribution has been the publication of widely used software for the full three-dimensional modeling and analysis of shape variations using these techniques. His studies of craniofacial evolution have shown how growth variations contribute to craniofacial variations among adult primates. These have related remodeling, ontogenetic shape changes and phylogeny to each other and have provided important new insights into the ontogeny of differences among sexes, subspecies and species.

Want Free Tickets to See David Sedaris????
Sunday, October 20th, 7:00 PM
Staller Center


With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. He will read from his work in an evening that promises to be both hilarious and original. In his new book of essays, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, the humorist turns a wry eye on his adopted home in rural England, his childhood, and the annoying people he comes across in airport lounges. "It's a bizarre and stimulating world tour," notes a reviewer. "All the wit, charm, and poignancy his readers have come to expect," writes another.


Sedaris is the author of many best-selling books including Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and DenimWhen You Are Engulfed in Flames and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk. He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album.

Sedaris broke through in 1992 when NPR's This American Life aired his side-splitting essay SantaLand Diaries, a recounting of his stint as a Macy's department store Christmas elf. With readings made up of well-worn material, works-in-progress, and even diary entries, every public reading by Mr. Sedaris is an event.

"I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out."  David Sedaris 




 Enjoy a Sunday night out on the Honors College.  Stop by the office during business hours and see Allison for them...but you must tell her the secret word found on our Facebook page!  First come, first serve. Limited quantity available.

g Program. This year's text is The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman, award-winning writer, essayist, and editor. The book chronicles the trials of an epileptic Hmong child and her family living in Merced, California.

The Washington Post called the book "an intriguing, spirit-lifting, extraordinary exploration."
