Science Fiction TV Dinner: Black Mirror

Tuesday, November 15, 6:00pm
Marston Exploration Theater, ISTB4 building, ASU Tempe campus
Free event, with free food – learn more and RSVP at https://asublackmirror.eventbrite.com

“Black Mirror” brings the breathtaking aesthetics, dystopian fervor, bracing social commentary, and eerie prescience of “The Twilight Zone” to the age of iPhones, Snapchat, and Snowden.

The first season episode “”Fifteen Million Merits”” is an incisive cautionary tale about a future shaped by gamification, reality TV voyeurism, class exploitation, and the ever-narrowing window for authentic political dissent in an age of mediated entertainment spectacle.

Join us for a screening and conversation with Alex Halavais, associate professor of social technologies in ASU’s School of Social and Behavioral Sciences and author of the book “”Search Engine Society,”” and Jason Scott, assistant professor in ASU’s School of Film, Dance and Theatre and a film publicist with credits including “”The Crow”” and “”Dazed and Confused.”” We’ll have free dinner available for the first 150 guests.

Education Research Conference

The Teachers College Doctoral Council is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Education Research Conference on Friday, January 20th of 2017

his conference is a unique opportunity for students to present their research regardless of what stage in the research process a project is in. Students may present research proposals, works that are currently in the data collection and analysis stage, as well as completed or published projects. We encourage first year students to present on projects that they have completed as part of their first semester of coursework.

At this conference, students have the opportunity to present their work, practice presentation skills, and receive feedback about their research and ideas from an interdisciplinary audience of other graduate students, professors, and researchers working in education and related fields. Last year, we were pleased to welcome students from the Math department and the Design school. This year we hope to continue to bring students from different disciplines and departments together around issues in education. To aid us in our effort, we encourage you to disseminate this call for proposals to students working in other departments on any of ASU’s campuses.

Students are welcome to submit more than one proposal for the conference. Proposals are due November 23rd at 11:59pm. To submit your proposal(s), please, complete the form attached to this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdH1_rAxEz6Vdv41JvkUv5qS9zRVynO7sFJoYf-oc3-HSYHXQ/viewform

If you have any questions or comments, contact your TCDC officers at tcdcasu@gmail.com.
