[198] Latest MTSU iMagazine features research, music, more

Tablet-only mini-edition features multimedia stories
MURFREESBORO — From an MTSU professor’s research on artifacts traded in Tennessee by 16th Century Spanish explorers to an interview with a country music superstar with deep MTSU roots, the newest electronic mini-version of MTSU Magazine for tablets and smartphones covers a broad swath of topics for the university’s growing web and app audiences to enjoy.

Available through the MTSU Magazine app for iPads, iPhones and Android devices, the e-version includes several stories with multimedia content that aren’t available in print. The MTSU Mag app is available in the iTunes store and now at Google Play.

The latest mini-edition includes:

  • A profile of anthropology professor Tanya Peres’ work surveying artifacts from a late prehistoric site on a private residence in Chattanooga; her work adds to the body of evidence suggesting Spaniards traveled through the Tennessee region and traded with local Native Americans.
  • A conversation with country music superstar Chris Young about MTSU’s impact both on the Nashville music industry and also in his own life.
  • A closer look at MTSU’s newest class of Distinguished Alumni.
  • A profile of biology professor Brian Miller, who won a national award from the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies for his studies on the Hellbender Salamander in Middle Tennessee.
  • An article defending the value and relevance of a liberal arts education in today’s job-obsessed environment.

The content included in the mini-magazine also is available online at

The next print edition of MTSU Magazine will reach MTSU alumni and friends by mail in January 2014.
