Peter Bensinger

College Seminar

After graduating Stanford in 1980, Peter returned to Chicago to study improv for a year with Paul Sills, the original artistic director of The Second City – Chicago’s improv theater whose alumni include many Saturday Night Live performers. He then moved to New York City and worked as an actor for five years before going to New York University School of Law and becoming a commercial trial lawyer. Peter started at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP in New York, then went to Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago, and then spun off with Bartlit Beck LLP twenty-five years ago. He spent most of his career doing pharmaceutical patent/antitrust cases.

For the past fifteen years, Peter has been the Bartlit Beck partner responsible for professional development (lawyer training), new lawyer orientation, and attorney performance review. Twenty years ago, he also co-founded and taught for the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law an experiential workshop seminar called “High Tech Trial Techniques.” The class covered presentation stagecraft, digital presentation of evidence, best practices and custom animation in PowerPoint, and the use of trial graphics in trial and appellate briefs. He has also taught Continuing Legal Education classes on variety of topics, including patents 101, taking and defending depositions, examining fact and expert witnesses, delivering opening and closing statements, “Dealing with Jerks – using Aikido and active listening to deal with difficult opposing counsel,” “Presentation Stagecraft – using fundamental theatre techniques to enhance connection and persuasiveness,” and “Enhancing Ensemble Performance – using stagecraft to facilitate connection and inclusion.”

In addition to Peter’s work as a trial lawyer and teacher, he has experience as a civic leader:

  • President, Chicago Sinai Congregation (2009-2012) (chicagosinai.org)
  • Executive Committee member, Trustee, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (luriechidrens.org)
  • Chairman, Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute of Lurie Children’s Hospital
  • Chairman, Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership (spertus.edu)
  • Chairman, Professionals Network of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, and Trustee, Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago (juf.org)

His Fall 2019 Trumbull residential seminar “Leadership as Behavior” weaves together lessons learned from the theater, from leading trial teams in high

Graeme Berlyn

Forestry and Environmental Studies

Graeme Berlyn’s interests are the morphology and physiology of trees and forests in relation to environmental stress. Leaves are the most responsive and vulnerable organs of trees, and Professor Berlyn studies the ways that leaf structure and function reveal the effects of environmental change such as global warming or altitudinal and latitudinal gradients. In addition, these studies can help determine the optimum range of habitats for individual species and thus be of use in reforestation and aforestation. Some of the techniques used to study these problems are: light processing by leaves in relation to environmental factors as measured by chlorophyll fluorescence, photosynthesis, spectral reflectance, absorption, and transmission; and image analysis of leaf and tree structure. Professor Berlyn has also pioneered in the development of organic biostimulants that can help plants resist insect, disease, and other environmental stressors while reducing fertilizer use. Thus the Berlyn lab focuses on how to measure the stress of plant life and also on how to ameliorate it. Students in the Berlyn lab are currently working on such topics as structural and functional change along elevational gradients in mountains, molecular control of sun/shade leaf phenotypic plasticity, response of tropical pioneer species to gaps in tropical forests, and the role of antioxidants, stress vitamins, and mycorrhizas in organic biostimulants.

Ruth Blake

Geology and Geophysics

Ruth Blake’s research has been the characterization and interpretation of oxygen isotope fractionations in the PO4-water system during biogeochemical cycling of phosphorous in natural waters and sediments. A major area of current research surrounds characterization and “ground-truthing” of 18O/16O ratios (18O) signatures of phosphates in mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal Fe-oxide deposits, with the goal of identifying reliable 18Op biosignatures and isotopic tracers of microbial activity and phosphorous cycling at mid-ocean ridges, in Earth’s deep biosphere, Mars and beyond. Many of the activities her laboratory are devoted to development of methods for extraction and O isotopic analysis of PO4 in a range of geologic, biologic and extraterrestrial materials including deep-sea sediments, ancient rocks; biomass, and Martian soil analogue materials.

Daniel Botsman


Daniel Botsman teaches courses on the history of Japan from 1500 to the present. 

Born in Lae, Papua New Guinea (site of one of the many brutal battles fought between Allied and Japanese forces during the Second World War), he spent his formative years in Brisbane, Australia, where he was introduced to the Japanese language at a young age.  After an extended visit to Osaka as a high school student the study of Japanese history and society quickly became a guiding intellectual passion.  He went on to complete his B.A. in Asian Studies (Hons.) at the Australian National University in Canberra and was awarded the 1992 Rhodes Scholarship for his home state of Queensland. After two years at Merton College, Oxford, where he received an M.Phil. in Economic and Social History, he completed his graduate studies at Princeton University, earning his Ph.D. in History in 1999. 

His first academic appointment was in the Faculty of Law at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, where he taught for a year before returning to the United States to take up a position in the history department at Harvard.  In 2006 he moved to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was recipient of the James M. Johnston Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Botsman’s publications include a translation of the memoirs of a prominent post-war foreign minister, Okita Saburo: A Life In Economic Diplomacy (Canberra: Australia-Japan Research Center, 1993), and a study of the history of punishment from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Punishment and Power in the Making of Modern Japan(Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2005), also available in Japanese as Chi nurareta jihi, muchi utsu teikoku (Tokyo: Intershift, 2009).

His current research examines the impact that Western ideas about slavery and emancipation had on Japanese society in the second half of the nineteenth century, focusing particularly on the experiences of Japan’s outcaste communities.  He is also at work on a volume of translations of important recent work by Japanese social historians, and an introduction to Japanese women’s history, which he is co-authoring with former UNC colleague, Jan Bardsley.

Victoria Brescoll

School of Mangement

Victoria Brescoll’s research focuses on the impact of stereotypes on individuals’ status and power within organizations, particularly for individuals who violate gender stereotypes. Her study “Can an Angry Woman Get Ahead? Gender, Status Conferral, and Workplace Emotion Expression,” published in Psychological Science, concluded that people reward men who get angry but view angry women as incompetent and unworthy of status and power in the workplace. The research was widely reported on in the popular press including the New York Times, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, and U.S. News & World Report.

Additionally, Professor Brescoll examines how having power may differentially affect men and women’s behavior at work. In 2012, she published a paper in Administrative Science Quarterly, “Who Takes the Floor and Why: Gender, Power, and Volubility in Organizations,” showing that, for men, there is a strong relationship between having power and talking a lot in organizational settings (e.g., the United States Senate), but for women, there is no such relationship. Her other research interests include the cultural origins of stereotypes (e.g. the media), corporate social responsibility, and framing messages to improve health policy.

She received her MS, MPhil, and PhD in social psychology from Yale University where she was supported by a graduate research fellowship from the National Science Foundation. She completed her BA in psychology from the University of Michigan. In 2004, Professor Brescoll worked in the office of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton under a Congressional Fellowship.
