Participate in a PAID Study on Daily Interactions and Social Situations in the Rodriguez Mosquera Lab

The Wesleyan University Psychology Department is conducting a paid study on daily interactions and social situations open to WESLEYAN STUDENTS ONLY.

Participants will complete a 5-7 minute daily survey for 21 days. YOU can earn up to $35 depending on how many measures you complete!

Daily diary studies, (where participants complete SHORT surveys everyday), are RARE, interesting, and engaging for participants and researchers alike.

This study is a unique opportunity for you to contribute to psychological research, as well as help your fellow students who are working as research assistants.

If you are interested, please fill out this quick eligibility survey:

Film Series: Linda

1929. USA. Dir: Dorothy Davenport. With Helen Foster. 75 min. 35mm print.

This film is so rare that no footage from it exists online!

In a far-off hamlet, a keen young woman feels obliged to forfeit true love in the name of family honor. Let maestro accompanist Ben Model’s live theater organ – combined with a rare print from the Library of Congress – whisk you back to the silent era during this once-in-a-lifetime viewing opportunity. Intro by Jeanine Basinger, Corwin-Fuller Professor of Film Studies.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
