This spring the Media & Technology Learning Collaborative hosts a two-part workshop with Ultra-Red, an international artist collective who engage in cultural analysis through sound and listening.

In their first session, members of the collective presented an introduction to “militant sound investigation” and challenged us to create a question for the community that takes the form: “What is the sound of _____?” (Previous Ultra-Red investigations have considered the questions: “what is the sound of freedom?,” “what is the sound of anti-racism?,” “what is the sound of alternatives to incarceration?”)

On April 9, from 1–3pm, the collective will return to host a session open to all, in which we will collectively listen to and examine the sounds gathered by our community.

Everyone is welcome to attend the 2nd meeting. Whether or not you were at the 1st meeting, you can:

• create a sound recording and attend the 2nd meeting
• just attend the 2nd meeting and participate in the discussion

All the materials from the 1st event (including zoom recording) are here, if you want to watch the first workshop.

a Person I know has been working on this project. It's a series of info that students may need in times of covid. Should cover topics like: 'how to apply to unemployment' 'getting/ securing housing/ rent' 'online learning resources' to 'mental health suppport' etc. Its created alongside folx who live in different cities that can make hyper-local recommendations. shaning in case it's helpful!
Current neuroscience/cog-sci students: three professors at my university (including my own PI) are looking to hire PhD students in neuroscience (they're all awesome mentors and I've worked with all of them). Also, Bloomington, IN has a small contingent of former Hampsters here already, we'd be happy to welcome more). The PhDs at IU are typically fully funded + healthcare benefits (cost of living out here is quite low too, which is a bonus). Dr. Aina Puce is a social neuroscientist and expert in M/EEG, as well as network neuroscience. https://twitter.com/aina_puce/status/1183441613776920578 Dr. Rick Betzel is a network neuroscientist interested in complex systems and dynamic networks. https://twitter.com/richardfbetzel/status/1183346160632766464 My own lab is recruiting as well. Dr. Olaf Sporns is significant figure in Network Neuroscience and the world of complex systems science. He's also a really nice guy. https://twitter.com/spornslab/status/1183461586771599360 If you're interested, reach out to me (either on Facebook, or at my work email tvarley at iu dot edu) - I'd be happy to answer questions or make introductions.
For any CBD students who are 1) interested in pursuing a science PhD and 2) interested in highly interdisciplinary research, check this out. This is the PhD program I'm currently in my second year of, and it's great. As a former Hampster, I think it's an amazing fit (the benefits are pretty great too - if you don't want to be a starving grad student, this is the program for you).
Hey all - So excited to post that I am working on a new project. With thanks to satellite imagery from DigitalGlobeFDN (www.digitalglobefoundation.org) she is working to locate a boat in the Hudson Bay area which was last seen by a pilot about 60 years ago. Because of the potential location of the boat, estimated to be about 500 feet above mean sea level, it is possible that it dates back 3000 BP. Without satellite imagery it would not be possible to effectively search for the boat location today because of the harsh and inaccessible terrain in the region
