Are you dealing with end-of-the-term challenges in this particularly trying semester—such as issues with grading, handling late work, advising students on whether to invoke the CR/NCR option or to drop a class? If so, consider joining this Office Hours for Teachers where you can problem-solve with experienced colleagues and a student life dean.

Jim Ralph, director of CTLR and History professor, Jen Sellers, Student Life Dean, and Mike Leonard, Student Advising Head, will be on hand to respond to your queries and concerns.

We will meet in person in the CTLR Suite, but participants can attend virtually as well. Please register at https://middlebury-ctlr.libcal.com/event/8551426. The Zoom link to join will be included in your registration confirmation.

Diet, Dentition, and Craniomandibular Shape: Biting into Complex Relationships.

In this seminar Dr. Cooke will examine the masticatory morphology of the primates. She’ll discuss how she uses three-dimensional modeling and topographic analysis of primate teeth to understand how primate dentitions function and how dental data can be used to infer ecological niche in poorly known extant primates and in extinct species. As shifts in diet often lie at the root of evolutionary transitions, understanding dietary adaptions today and in the fossil record help researchers better understand primate evolution broadly.
