Professor on Fire

Professor Lauren Steimer's Spring Break research trip took an interesting turn at the Stunt Guild of Ireland's training facility. Between interviews with stuntwoman Eimear O'Grady, Stunt Coordinator Giedrius ‘Gee’ Nagys invited her to try her "first burn.”  She said yes. Stunt performance is among  Steimer's areas of research specialization. Her trip also included a visit to the Centre of Horseback Combat in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
