Recital: Jason Brogan—The View from Nowhere

From CFA Staffer Andrew Chatfield:

This concert by graduate music student Jason Brogan links together thought, noise, and improvisation in an attempt to investigate the self as being just a process: a “no one” that could be constructed or manipulated. Through the defamiliarization of neurobiological, psychological, and artistic-performative parameters (as “opera”) via amplification and digital processing, and the objectification of this experience via live documentation and recording/playback on tape, subjectivity is disassociated from selfhood and reconsidered as experimental music.

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.
