This issue of The Proceedings of GREAT Day showcases students' intellectual immersion in both their local and global communities. These essays thoughtfully address a multitude of issues, musing on subjects that are both ancient and contemporary, both global and intensely personal. We chose to publish an abundance of pieces that examined the world through the prism of feminism, reaching at once into the past with case studies on women's rights in early American colonies, in the present with case studies on current-day rape legislation reforms, and into the future with experiments on bystander intervention in rape and media representation of female athletes. We also chose to publish several essays that delved deep into the humanities, analyzing the identities of modern hipsters, coming-of-age novels, centuries-old poems, and ancient Greek philosophy. Furthermore, we chose to publish a number of essays investigating socioeconomic enigmas like failures of foreign policy in the DRC, U.S. consumption modeling, and the nuances of social anxiety in college students.In its seventh year, The Proceedings of GREAT Day continues to publish creative and scholarly student work presented at the college-wide symposium GREAT (Geneseo Recognizes Excellence, Achievement & Talent) Day.

Geneseo Recognizing Excellence, Achievement & Talent Day is a college-wide symposium celebrating the creative and scholarly endeavors of our students. In addition to recognizing the achievements of our students, the purpose of GREAT Day is to help foster academic excellence, encourage professional development, and build connections within the community. This issue of The Proceedings of GREAT Day seeks to prove that creative research is not bound by location, gender, or time. Ranging anywhere from the current political climate in Eurasian countries to the presence of gender representation in video games, the authors highlighted this year challenge readers to consider on-going issues regarding diversity, music, climate change, and even cooking with earth ovens. These pieces are delightfully unexpected, shamelessly dynamic, and packed with information that spurs its readers toward action and growth; while one piece touches on the history of modern dance, another searches to find alternative fuel resources in chlorella algae species. Sometimes, these pieces work in conversation with each other: by analyzing the current social issues surrounding college campuses, we¿re given pieces that touch on issues of diversity, relationships, and perceived self-efficacy on our own campus. By utilizing hands-on experiences and personal interviews for their research, our authors are able to bring a level of personability that is unprecedented in GREAT Day. These authors yearn to break the stigma surrounding the typical definition of scholarly research and craft essays that push readers to consider new perspectives on the diverse challenges we face today. In its ninth year, The Proceedings of GREAT Day continues to publish creative and scholarly student work presented at the college-wide symposium GREAT (Geneseo Recognizes Excellence, Achievement & Talent) Day. The journal is also available online for free at go.geneseo.edu/greatjournal.

This book explains the subtle maneuvers of what researchers call “facework” and demonstrates the vital role it plays in the success or failure of cross-cultural interactions. Building on Geert Hofstede’s seminal research on cultural dimensions, Merkin synthesizes more recent research in business, communication, cross-cultural psychology and sociology to offer a model for better understanding facework. Additionally, Merkin’s model shows how particular communication strategies can facilitate more successful cross-cultural interactions. The first book of its kind to focus on the practical aspects of employing face-saving, it is a needed text for academics, students, and business professionals negotiating with organizations from different cultures.

In How to Have a Good Day, economist and former McKinsey partner Caroline Webb shows readers how to use recent findings from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to transform our approach to everyday working life. Advances in these behavioral sciences are giving us ever better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do, and what it takes for us to be smart and savvy. But it's not always been easy to see how to apply these insights in the workplace – until now. In How to Have a Good Day, Webb explains how three big scientific ideas can help us be at our best every day. She shows us exactly how to apply this science to our plans, tasks and conversations, in step-by-step guidance that allows us to: – Set better priorities – Make the hours go further – Turn every interaction into a success – Strengthen our personal impact – Be resilient in the face of setbacks – Sustain our energy over the course of the day Webb teaches us how to be at our best under pressure, and gives us specific tools to tackle common work challenges – from conflict with colleagues, to dull meetings and packed inboxes. Filled with stories of people who have used Webb's insights to boost their job satisfaction and performance at work, How to Have a Good Day is the book so many people wanted when they finished Nudge, Blink and Thinking Fast and Slow, and were looking for practical ways to apply this fascinating science to their own lives and careers. A remarkable and much needed book, How to Have a Good Day firmly delivers on its promise, showing us all how to have a lifetime of good days.
