Lecture Tomorrow: “Plasticity and the Gendered Brain”

You folks should check this really interesting lecture goin’ on tomorrow. It lies somewhere in the intersection of neuroscience, philosophy, gender studies, psychology (which I suppose is neuroscience lite #heyooooooooo #hatersgonnahate), and other stuff I’m probably not thinking of right now.

Anyway, it’s the 25th Annual Diane Weiss ’80 Memorial lecture, and it features Prof. Rebecca Jordan-Young of Barnard College (pictured right). Brief bio from the Barnard website:

Professor Jordan-Young is a sociomedical scientist whose research includes social epidemiology studies of HIV/AIDS, and evaluation of biological work on sex, gender and sexuality. She teaches courses in science and technology studies, sexuality, gender theory, and HIV/AIDS.

Date: Thursday, Wed. 5th
Time: 8pm

IN 45 MINUTES: Sinners At Dinner! or One Night Food Affair

Piss drunk and looking for trouble, I logged on to facebook, looking for an Internet fight. When I made it clear to Ala Faller ’12 that this was my territory and she could pry my keyboard from my cold dead hands, she linked me to a page with the words below:

Desperate for good food, music, and an all expenses paid trip to Italy? Willing to settle for 2 of 3? Then come to Psi U this Wednesday for our 2nd DINNER AND A SHOW of the semester! Featuring the beautiful vocal stylings of Wesleyan’s own Cardinal Sinners, the music aspect is sure to provide the perfect early Wednesday evening entertainment. The Chique Chaque eating service (running since 1836) provides a great alternative to the monotonous Weswings specials and endless Summerfields burritos that have come to define your boring Wesleyan eating experience. Best part? Only 10 points!
You cant miss this event.
No excuses will be accepted.

Date: Today, April Today

Film Series: The Holy Mountain

1973. Mexico. Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky. With Horacio Salinas. 114 min.

In this hallucinatory and savagely sacrilegious parable from the EL TOPO filmmaker, a thief, an alchemist, and seven planetary embodiments make a pilgrimage to a mountaintop temple to uncover the secret of immortality. But as birds fly from bullet holes and reptiles reenact the history of Mexico, it seems their dreamy trip might turn out to be a nightmare.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
