[558] From paper art to vampire slaying, latest MTSU iMagazine offers great stories

Digital mini-edition offers multimedia content

MURFREESBORO — From an MTSU professor’s research on Buffy the Vampire Slayer to an interview with NFL quarterback hopeful Logan Kilgore, the newest digital mini-version of MTSU Magazine 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 electronic-only version includes several stories with multimedia content that aren’t available in print. The MTSU Mag app is available in the iTunes store (click the image at right) and at Google Play.

The latest mini-edition includes:
  • A profile of David Lavery, director of Graduate Studies in English at MTSU, and his quest to craft a new pop culture canon that traverses Wallace Stevens to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • A conversation with recently graduated MTSU quarterback Logan Kilgore, whose NFL hopes rest on his arm and on his head.
  • A more personal look at the impact MTSU’s underwater treadmills have had in providing the next step for many suffering severe mobility impairment.
  • An explanation of the placement of the stately lion sculptures outside the Honors College — non-living embodiments of its nobler aspirations.
  • An exploration of how The James E. Walker Library and its staff deftly ride the digital humanities wave.
  • A visual journey through the eyes of alumnus and MTSU professor Charles Clary, whose art cuts both ways.
  • An article detailing the evolution of home economics to the human sciences and the program’s proud tradition at MTSU.

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 July 2014.
