Scientific Imaging Contest

The KINSC Scientific Imaging Contest is an annual competition for student-submitted images from experiments or simulations that are scientifically intriguing as well as aesthetically pleasing. Judging is based on both the quality of the image and the explanation of the underlying science.

Daniel Feshbach '20 won first place with a heat map depicting paths for a circular robot, which moves at an unreliable angle until encountering a wall.

COOL CLASSES: "The Sense and Senses of Islam"

COOL CLASSES: “The Sense and Senses of Islam”

Taught by Assistant Professor of Religion Guangtian Ha, this religion course introduces students to debates about the senses in Islam, including exploring the relationship between sound and the sacred. The ultimate goal of the class is to prompt students to reflect more critically on the essential role of the senses in our engagement with faith and politics in an age of mass mediation.

Our Cool Classes blog series highlights interesting, unusual, and unique courses that enrich the Haverford College experience.

In the Collection: Promotional & Educational Comic Books

One of the newest additions to Special Collections is a trove of 139 promotional and educational comic books donated by Rob Galford ’74. Mainly aimed at influencing public opinion, burnishing a company’s public image, advertising a product, or promulgating a government message, promotional comics shrewdly cloaked their mission in the popular comic book form. But instead of featuring the sagas of superheroes, they told more prosaic tales.

"In the Collection" highlights some of the rare and marvelous items that are part of Lutnick Library's Quaker & Special Collections.
