Be in the studio audience for a recording of My Favorite Lecture this Thursday evening at Plaza Grill in Arcata.
Social values and beliefs affect the questions we ask, and the ways in which we seek to answer them. This effect is readily apparent as it relates to the study of sexuality. Dr. Myers' lecture will explore how feminist approaches to science encourage us to remember that our experience, expectations, and motivations affect every level of our work. The method in its purest form may be objective, but we have not demonstrated the ability to apply it to questions of human behavior without implicit bias.
My Favorite Lecture is an interdisciplinary lecture series in which Humboldt State educators share some of their favorite material with a live community audience in downtown Arcata, California. A Taste of Arcata appetizer reception, courtesy of Arcata Main Street, precedes the lecture.
