Translating Physics, Teknolust, Transmen?
Sunday night @ 7 SHARP we'll meet in Dalton 1 to watch Lynn Hershman Leeson's film Teknolust-- and eat pizza together. In next Monday's class we'll discuss "Physics @ Bryn Mawr" with several members of the physics dept; on Wednesday we'll discuss Leeson's movie.
Which gives you some choices: either post your thoughts about Professor Beckmann's "Conceptual Physics" class (before we meet on Monday morning), or your responses to "Teknolust" (before we meet on Wednesday). No reading this coming week, so plenty of time to write and think-aloud!
And--if neither of those prompts interest you--here's a third possibility. A friend and BMC alum just sent me this article from the Boston Globe: "When She Graduates as He." It addresses the question I wanted to ask Afsaneh Najmabadi: how historically all-female colleges might best respond to transmen, students who are exploring the possibility of growing up to be men. As you'll see from the article, "at Bryn Mawr College...everyone is accepting, but there are no resources."
