Stephen Burn (English) had an essay on David Foster Wallace's novel, Infinite Jest, published in a book titled Upon Further Review: Essays on American Sports Literature. The essay was “The Machine-Language of the Muscles: Reading, Sport and the Self in Infinite Jest.” Burn also wrote a review titled “Narratives of Information” of David Markson’s latest novel Vanishing Point, which has been published in the November/December issue of the American Book Review. Also, his review of Helen Sword’s Ghostwriting Modernism appeared in the current issue of James Joyce Quarterly.

Randall Jensen (HPER) coauthored "Effects of dietary supplementation with vitamins C and E on muscle function during and after eccentric contractions in humans." The paper, based on research conducted while Jensen was on sabbatical at the University of Limerick, was published in the October 2004 issue of the European Journal of Applied Physiology. Amir Shafat was the lead author. The study's findings indicated that although there was no effect on delayed onset muscle soreness, prior supplementation with dietary antioxidants (Vitamins C and E) resulted in smaller losses of muscle strength following eccentric muscle exercise. In other words, decreases in performance were somewhat less when supplementing with combined Vitamin E and C.


Ron Johnson (English) recently published a book titled Silver Thaw and Selected Stories.
