The annual Duane C. Anderson Hedgehog & Fox Faculty lecture series was held at East Central University on April 13. Dr. Jerry H. Clark presented the annual lecture, entitled, “Quantum Information with a Bose-Einstein Condensate.”

The lecture is named for former ECU Provost Duane C. Anderson and provides a campus-wide forum on exemplary faculty research and other academic experiences. Dr. Anderson established the lecture series during his time at ECU and originally named it for an essay by Isaiah Berlin that he read in graduate school. The essay’s title, “The Hedgehog and The Fox,” was pulled from a line in the work of Greek poet Archilochus. That line roughly says, “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”
