Now that we've got three new colleagues joining us (Piers Brown, Sarah Neville, and Lowell Duckert), it might be time to think about freshening up our faculty photos to keep up with the new lot. And thanks to the latest social science research, we can consider what really matters in these: are you a right cheeker or a left-cheeker?
Says here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22815695
that sciencey types favor the stoic, rational right side while English profs like to show the left.
Looking at our beaming faces, I see that most of us are straightaheaders (hmm), though there are a few lefties (running from Sweet's mild left tilt to Samyn's extreme head-turn) and a few righties (Ballentine, Baldwin), and one...uh...no-cheeker (oh dear).
