Carleton Connects Lecture Program

Carleton Connects logoAlumni, do you miss the intellectual life of Carleton, delving into new ideas with your classmates and favorite professors? Rediscover it through Carleton Connects, a monthly series of online presentations featuring both familiar and rising new faculty (and other special guests). 

Each Carleton Connects program is one hour, with 30-40 minutes of presentation by faculty followed by a period of questions and answers.  Because these events are by phone and/or online, you can participate wherever you happen to be! On the first call with Prof. Roy Grow, alumni from seven foreign countries dialed in to participate.

Visualizing the Liberal Arts (VIZ) at Carleton."  She will explore how this three year initiative has transformed teaching and learning across the college, and describe the interdisciplinary conference that Viz is hosting September 28-30, 2012 in the Weitz Center for Creativity.

    As more and more of our day-to-day activities have moved online, we have begun to leave digital traces of decisions and preferences -- moods, friendships, preferences among potential dates -- that had previously been all but invisible.   Join Professor David Liben-Nowell as he presents: "Tie game: Making connections with social networks".  He will describe a few highlights of the emerging research area of computational social science and talk briefly about how current students are exploring this topic in the Carleton curriculum.  At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to ask your own questions.

    Carleton Connects: Professor Seth Greenberg

    Cognitive psychologists understand that our recognition of patterns (perceptions) in the world in which we live are a function not only of the information available in the external world, but processes, biases, goals and the stored information that already occupies our minds. Recognition of faces is one important example of how processing a visual pattern is subject to internal goals, biases, and expectations. Join Carleton Connects as we join Professor Seth Greenberg, Psychology to present "Let's Face It: Not all Faces Are Treated Equally".  He will examine research that looks at what influences face recognition and consider practical implications of these discoveries.
