Meredith Faculty Distinguished Lecture Explores Shakespeare’s Strong Women
Garry Walton, English professor and former dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, brought his Shakespeare background and Meredith’s emphasis on strong women together in his lecture. He opened with “What would someone in Shakespeare’s lifetime have meant by the notion of a strong woman and where would he have looked to find her?” He focused on women’s roles in Shakespeare’s comedies who “stand with their sisters, stand up to power and stand firm for forgiveness.”
Part of the lecture also included Shakespearean scenes and speeches by Meredith students and alumnae. Those students are Elaina Mittleman, Rebecca Daw Blum, Kacey Reynolds Schedler, Seth Blum and Matt Schedler.

Dr. Cynthia Edwards
Meredith Faculty Member Talks about the Importance of Relationships
Dr. Cynthia Edwards, Professor of Psychology at Meredith College, gave the Faculty Distinguished Lecture titled “Mix Your Own Palette: The Power of Friendships to Color Your Future.” She and a group of students worked on the presentation together as a follow-up to a Dupont-funded grant.
The emphasis is on how critical relationships are with family, mentors and friends. The studies they used followed up research on Meredith College students from the classes of 2006 and 2007. One of the issues they stress is understanding “emergent adulthood,” the period from age 18 to 25. She said this is when people are often the physically healthiest but also the most at risk for a wide variety of psychological stresses.
The presentation features videos from a number of students with information on internships and research they’ve done related to the topic.
Dr. Edwards joined the Meredith faculty in 1991. She enjoys diverse research interests and particularly appreciates working collaboratively with Meredith students in the development of research projects. She has co-authored a reader in the history of psychology, published in Developmental Psychology, presents regularly at national and international conferences, and has mentored numerous students to national conference presentations.
Edwards — Monday-Wednesday-Friday* – 2:30 a.m. & 2 and 10:30 p.m.Tuesday Thursday – 2:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.
