Coordinated and presented by the Junior Fellows, these lectures take place roughly once a month and invite three Junior Fellows to give an after dinner lecture on a chosen topic through the lens of their various fields of study.
This JFLS, the theme will be centered around the 2013 album “Random Access Memories” by French group Daft Punk.
Sourojeet Chakraborty (Chemical Engineering) will demonstrate just how music (in particular, Indian Classical Music) can influence a listener’s mind, evoking a kaleidoscope of emotions.
Christine H. Tran (Information) asks you to play along with “e-Girls” on the popular game-streaming website, Twitch.tv. What does the lucrative (but often resented) business of “e-Girl” personalities on social media reveal about our own relationship to gender, labour and pleasure?
Jaisie Sin (Information) aims to shed light on what is meant by “user experience (UX) design” and how thinking in terms of UX can help not only designers of technology but also anyone interested in serving other people and improving lives.
