With the introduction of location-based games such as "Ingress" or, more recently, "Pokemon Go," an influx of gamers equipped with mobile devices appeared around the country. While the primary focus of players is catching Pokemon or capturing portals, new research conducted by Dr. Anthony Buccitelli, professor of American studies and communications at Penn State Harrisburg, suggests that gamers are doing more than just playing -- they’re building communities and connecting with their local cultural heritage.

Book publication: Dr. Glen Mazis, professor of humanities and philosophy, has published a book titled “Merleau-Ponty and the Face of the World: Silence, Ethics, Imagination, and Poetic Ontology.” This is the culmination of Dr. Mazis's many decades of research on the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, French phenomenologist, and on the subject of the interplay of imagination and perception, and the poetic expressiveness at the heart of language. It is also a critique of traditional rule-based and of traditional philosophical approaches to ontology.
