Monday Memo, November 27, 2023

Dear A&S Colleagues,

This month marks the one-year anniversary of the release of ChatGPT. So it's a great time to take stock of how A&S faculty are incorporating AI into teaching and research. Many thanks to those who responded to my recent call for examples: it was inspiring to learn just how much our college is doing! At the risk of neglecting important work not yet reported to me, here are highlights of what I learned:

  • Jennifer Sichel (Art) assigns seminar readings pushing students to think critically about AI in the context of a longer history of “technological reproducibility,” beginning with Walter Benjamin's early 20th-century writings through Hito Steyerl’s 2023 essay “Mean Images.” Sichel said, “Rather than simply telling students not to use (or to use) AI, my goal is to equip them to think more critically about it—to ask better, more critical questions about who AI benefits, whose labor it exploits, what resources it requires, and whether it can be used for liberatory projects.”
  • Michael Perlin (Biology) will incorporate AI in BIO 542: Gene Structure and Function, in Spring 2024. Students will use AI to generate four short scientific “Wikis” about topics related to the course, which will be evaluated in peer-group critiques to identify inaccuracies or problems and how to modify the writing to be more original and valid.
  • Bill Brantley (Communication) teaches COMM 464-51: How Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping the Future of Communication, exploring how mastering AI tools can aid communication students' careers. He said, “I aim to teach students how to ethically use generative AI tools to aid them with the data-intensive aspects of their careers while they concentrate on building their soft skills, which cannot be automated through AI.” The course covers AI’s impact on content creation and editing, data analysis, emerging roles such as AI ethicists, and the impact on marketing, advertising, and customer service.
  • Karen Freberg (Communication) explores in her courses the benefits, challenges, and applications of using AI in strategic communication and social media. Strategic use of AI has also been a major focus of Freberg's work in directing the The Bird’s Nest, UofL's student-run advertising agency. The 2nd edition of Freberg’s textbook on public relations (Jan. 2024) will provide case studies, best practices, and pedagogical resources and tips for how to use AI in PR classes.
  • Mary Sheridan (Commonwealth Center for Humanities and Society) hosted a workshop in spring 2023 in which faculty from a variety of disciplines explained how they are using AI in their classrooms.
  • Michael Losavio (Criminal Justice) has published and presented widely on AI, including two book chapters (2023), two articles (2021-23), and four articles forthcoming and under submission. He delivered presentations on AI in 2023 for Perm State University (Russian Federation), the University of Sunderland (United Kingdom), the Louisville Bar Association, and the University of Hong Kong. In his courses, Losavio asks students to consider the impact of AI on criminal justice and public safety. He also assigns students to run their abstract/paper proposal through ChatGPT and attach it to their papers as an appendix. He said, "Their papers are inevitably better than the ChatGPT version, though whether it is due to the excellence of the students, the mediocrity of ChatGPT or the spur of competing with the machine is an open research question; I feel it is the excellence of the students.”
  • Rachel Morgan (English Ph.D. student) teaches a section of ENGL 303: Scientific and Technical Writing that considers how AI is being taken up in different industries and fields, ethical issues and concerns of AI use, and the implications that AI use has on professionals. Students investigate different AI tools and learn about working and writing in tandem with AI.
  • Marie Pruitt (English Ph.D. student) published an opinion piece in the Louisville Cardinal student newspaper, "I’m a tech-savvy instructor at U of L. AI should not be used in the classroom."
  • Andrea Gaughan (Geographic and Environmental Sciences) is teaching an introduction to remote sensing for both undergraduates and graduates (GEOG 355/555) that includes an activity built around the engagement of AI and natural language processing tools (e.g. ChatGPT) to facilitate research inquiry. The activity’s main aims were to 1) introduce the power of AI in researching a topic and 2) reinforce caution and good sense for digging deeper than the first return provided by a conversation AI tool.   
  • Benne Holwerda (Physics and Astronomy) uses machine learning (a subfield of AI using algorithms trained on data to produce adaptable models to perform complex tasks) in a range of current research projects: on classification of stars in the latest James Webb Space Telescope data; on classification of galaxies; for identifying merging galaxies; and for predicting the spectrum of a galaxy based on its images. In teaching, the department’s computational physics track has several use cases for machine learning applications, including how to use the different algorithms and evaluate their effectiveness, e.g., PHYS 275-PHYS 375 and PHYS 475.
  • John Kielkopf (Physics and Astronomy) is using AI in a sponsored research project that would identify patterns in measurable properties of low-Earth-orbit satellites. Kielkopf has also used ChatGPT4 and Bard to generate questions for quizzes that, with editing, have been useful in introductory physics and astronomy teaching, and he offers students the option to use AI in answering written questions, with the caution that public AI resources may invent citations.
  • Rodger Payne (Political Science) taught a graduate seminar on Digital Global Politics that discussed AI in the context of deepfakes and other uses of the technology. He also addresses AI in his course on Global Politics Through Film. He reports that some students have experimented with visual AI as well as textual AI, “but I have started warning students in all my classes against the risk of committing academic dishonesty if they submit such work as their own.”
  • Judith Danovitch (Psychological and Brain Sciences) is part of a collaboration led by Drs. Campbell Bego and Angela Thompson at the Speed school looking at engineering students’ trust in ChatGPT and whether an instructional intervention can modify their beliefs about the value of ChatGPT for engineering-related purposes. Further, she said, “My graduate student Lauren Girouard-Hallam and I have also engaged in extensive research and publishing on children’s interactions with AI-driven voice assistants.”
  • Eric Vukmanic (Psychological and Brain Sciences) engages AI in two courses, PSYC331: Sensation & Perception and PSYC382: Cognitive Neuroscience, as follows: weekly homework about a key concept about which they may use AI; permission to use AI for capstone research projects focused on peer-reviewed analysis, as long as they were transparent about how it was used; a “Break the Bot Challenge,” where they could show us fatal flaws in generative AI when undertaking challenges such as “work” in neuroscience. He said, “I have tried to help them understand that AI often generates false or inconsistent sources and that they would be penalized for low-quality work where this was not addressed.”
  •  James Beggan (Sociology), along with coauthor Joel D. Schmidt (Nursing), is writing an invited paper on the role of AI in affecting the way people consume sexually related material, tentatively titled, "When Pornography Perceives Us Back," which will consider the way in which AI could custom tailor material for consumers.
  • Angela Orend (Sociology) is teaching a tutorial on using AI to generate an appropriate research question. Also, in SOC 303-01 students created a survey on AI use by UL students and received about 30 responses:  50% say they are using AI weekly, and 44% are using it to do homework. 

We can all take pride in knowing that our faculty and students are leading the way in making informed, strategic, and ethical uses of AI in their work, demonstrating the agility that is a trademark of a liberal arts education.

Research Agenda 

Next week the Department of Physics and Astronomy is hosting the 17th annual international workshop devoted to the physics of Tau Lepton, Dec. 4-8, Floyd Theater, Swain Student Activities Center. About 100 distinguished international physicists have been invited to speak. Recent results on Tau Lepton production and decays at Lepton and hadron colliders will be presented. The series of sessions will open Dec. 4, at 9 a.m., with the closing day's sessions on Dec. 8, 4-8 p.m. Details about the workshop and registration can be found here. See flyer below.


Frank Kelderman, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of English, has an essay, "Black Elk Faces East: Beb Vuyk, Cultural Translation, and John G. Neihardt's Black Elk Speaks," that was just published in Journal of Transnational American Studies. It is about the 1964 Dutch-language translation of a classic work of Native American literature by the Dutch-Indonesian author Beb Vuyk. Read the essay here.  


An essay by Andrew Rabin, Professor and Vice Chair of English, "Archbishop Wulfstan: England’s Forgotten Lawmaker," has been published in History Today, a highly respected, widely circulated magazine that publishes scholarly writing on history for a general audience. Dr. Rabin's article focuses on Wulfstan II's interventions at a time of grave political crisis in England and demonstrates the value of scholarship in the Humanities, especially work on pre-modern matters. Read the article here. 


Associate Professors of Anthropology Ashley Smallwood and Thomas Jennings, along with colleague Randal Haas (University of Wyoming), recently published an article in Nature: Scientific Reports that confirms a 9,000-year-old female was buried with the tools she used to hunt large game in high-altitude Peru, challenging the notion that large-mammal hunting was the purview of males in early hunter-gatherer societies. This research was supported by a UofL EVPRI grant and an A&S Research and Creative Activity grant. Read more.


Alumni Spotlight


We were delighted to welcome Susan Mateja to the Golden Medallion Luncheon during Homecoming last month. With two degrees from Arts & Sciences (1976 BA Mathematics, 1979 MA Mathematics), Susan is retired from Humana, which sponsor the National Senior Games, where she competed on a mixed doubles tennis team with her husband, David. Nearly 12,000 men and women ages 50 and over competed July 7-18, 2023, as part of the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors.

The couple originally met on a tennis court and recently celebrated 51 years of marriage. Both avid players, it was their longtime dream to compete together, but a series of health issues of David's, as well as games being cancelled due to the pandemic, resulted in many failed attempts. Finally, in 2023, they got their chance. In recognition of their perseverance, the Matejas were named Humana Game Changers— a national recognition of athletes who exemplify healthy aging and provide encouragement, motivation, and inspiration for all seniors to live healthy lifestyles.

Susan said, “The fact that we’re healthy means that we can give back to the world in a bigger way. We feel the generosity that Humana has given to the Game Changers and through hosting the National Senior Games, and so we want to be generous, too. Generosity leads to longevity.” Read more in Prevention.


Model United Nations


By Daniel Ngongo

As the curtains fell on the 44th Model United Nations Conference, my perspective as a delegate was filled with more than just the exhilaration of debate and the pride of representation. Behind the formal wear and the formalities, I saw an arena for growth beyond conventional education. The simulation was a microcosm of the real world where theoretical knowledge met practical diplomacy.

Participants from institutions like EKU, Manchester University and IUS tackled global crises including the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, the conflict in Ukraine and the rising political turmoil in Haiti. More than 60 student delegates dove into the nuances of policy and peacemaking, using structured debates to drive the council’s agenda. The emphasis was on the pressing refugee crisis, pushing for resourceful policy proposals. The endorsed resolutions carried the possibility of influencing real-world policy, with the potential to reach the floor of the UN’s General Assembly.

Praise was given to Tristin Black, Anna Kelly, Jack Boisseau, and Jeremy Faulhaber for their excellence in directing the conference’s debates. They chaired four of the five Security Councils. The event was a showcase of talent and scholarly excellence; Alex Reynolds, Will VonHandorf, Elijah Deters, myself, Colin McQuarrie, Kaylee Vitato, Miles Frailey, Camden Harris, Sarah Youngman, and Luka Johnson earned top honors across several categories for their diplomatic prowess and role-play integrity. Read more in the Louisville Cardinal.

In Memoriam


We mourn the passing, at age 94 on October 28, 2023, of Robert Talmadge Maupin Sr., a pioneer in integrating UofL’s graduate physics program. Valedictorian of his class at Central High School in Louisville, Mr. Maupin went on to graduate with honors from UofL’s Municipal College in 1950 with a B.S. in physics and a minor in botany. He became the first African American to graduate with a master’s degree in physics from UofL in 1952.

In 1953 Mr. Maupin went on to work for the Department of the Army in Washington, D.C., at the Harry Diamond Labs and Bureau of Standards as a civilian scientist. He served for two years as an associate professor of physics at the University of the District of Columbia.  

Mr. Maupin was a dedicated member of the Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church in Takoma Park, Maryland, where he was able to integrate the congregation and served as a pathfinder leader and a deacon. He was also an avid musician and played the trombone with both college orchestras and local marching bands in Washington D.C.

He was married to Delores (Henderson) Maupin for 47 years until her passing in 2005. They had one son, Robert Maupin Jr. In 2007, Mr. Maupin Sr. moved back to Louisville and joined the Magazine Street Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. Throughout his life, Mr. Maupin was an avid photographer, cyclist, and loved to spend time in nature and to photograph wildflowers. He produced a wildflower photography book, Uncle Bob’s Flower Garden.

Mr. Maupin is survived by his son, Dr. Robert (Troylynn) Maupin Jr. of New Orleans, Louisiana; two granddaughters, three sisters, and one brother. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers. Read more.

Kristi Maxwell, Associate Professor of English, has three poems in the recent issue of Fou Magazine Fou is known in creative writing circles for its literary selections and clever design.


Kaila Story was consulted by WBKO for its report, “Black women are often incriminated victims of crime cases.” The piece was prompted by a new foundation to help raise awareness about gun violence and violence against women, the Ayanna Morgan Foundation, created by the parents of a Western Kentucky University student who was shot and killed last summer. Among Prof. Story's many quotes in the piece is: “There is a long-standing history of the criminalization of black bodies . . . We read various messages off of people’s bodies according to race, presumed sexuality, gender, gender identity . . . all those things weigh into whether a person outside of another values that person and sees the humanity in another person.” Prof. Story is Associate Professor in the Departments of Pan-African Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Read more.

All are invited to an event celebrating the publication date of Goners, a new book of poems by Associate Professor of English Kristi Maxwell (see cover below). The poems of Goners are lipograms—writing that excludes one or more letters—that Maxwell has named “extinctions.” The letters missing from the poems are the letters in the names of endangered animals. As she describes, “The poem ‘Cheetah,’ for instance, uses 21 of 26 letters, all but a, c, e, h, and t, so no articles, no cats, no being, no are or were or was, no choice, etc. (no etc.).” In the context of the corrosive effects of imperialism and industrialization, Goners questions the common practice of elegizing and employs an alternative mode. The animals in the titles are absent from the poems—they’re gone. Instead, in a haunting gesture, the poems foreground the role anthropocentrism plays in the sixth extinction underway. Tuesday, Dec. 5, CAMP Social Club (Rear Alley Entrance, 1031 S 6th St, Louisville, KY 40203), BYOB.
