Flora Lysen, de l'Université de Maastricht, interviendra dans le cadre d’une nouvelle série d’événements organisés par le réseau NeuroGenderings et le Laboratoire d'étude des sciences et des techniques (STS Lab).
The STS Lab and the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lausanne & the NeuroGenderings (NG) network are pleased to present a new NG Lecture Series dedicated this year 2022 to discussing the science and politics of race in brain research and the contribution of neuroscience in and from the Global South.
2nd Lecture of the series
Friday 9 September 2022: Zoom Talk
6am PDT, 9am EDT, 3pm CEST, 10pm Central Australia SummerTime
Flora Lysen will discuss her recently published book on histories of mediating the brain and popularizing brain science: Brainmedia: One hundred years of performing live brains,1920-2020 (published August 2022): https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/brainmedia-9781501378751/
Brainmedia reveals past and present examples of scientists and science educators who conceptualize and demonstrate the active human brain guided by new media technologies: from exhibitions of giant illuminated brain models and staged projections of brainwave recordings to live televised brain broadcasts, brains hooked up to computers and experiments with “brain-to-brain” synchronization.
Connecting to the NeuroGenderings lecture series, Lysen’s talk will highlight early exhibitions and publications on EEG in the 1930s, connecting to the concept of “physiognomic sight” and ideas about seeing differences at a glance.
