What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Baker works in the International Programs Department of Carroll College. by Stefanie Evans Staff Writer Carroll College has added a new gender studies class this semester, entitled Perspectives on Gender. The point of the class is to help students develop an understanding of the role that gender plays in shaping the world. Students will also “gain a basic understanding of the role the concept of gender plays in a variety of academic dis ciplines,” said Kay Satre from the department of languages and liter ature. “I think it is important for us,” said Keila Davis, a senior commu nication and public relations major from Helena, Mont, who is cur rently enrolled in the class, “as students to understand how gender plays out in so many areas of our lives, especially coming from a liberal arts background.” Arrive Alive Reminder A LITTLE INTOXICATED?

The class includes curriculum from communications, sociology, psychology, literature, biology, international relations, history, ethics and the media. Each week the class will be directed by a pro fessor from the featured field of study who will inform students on the presence of gender issues in their field through readings, lec tures, videos, and projects. “Do these stereotypes help or hurt a man’s interaction with other men and with women in society?” is one of the questions that Rick Moritz, from the department of communications, will be asking when he leads the class in examin ing the concept of multiple mas culinities. According to Moritz, students will examine how we develop stereotypes, and what pos itive and negative effects are gen erated.
