Brain-Computer Interfaces 

The field of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) has advanced rapidly over the last few years. From consumer friendly companies like OpenBCI and Emotiv, that make BCI technology and its vast applications available to the masses, to Elon Musk’s much publicized company Neuralink, brain-computer interfaces are on the precipice of revolutionizing every aspect of our lives. Without question, brain-computer interfaces will attain cultural saturation in the near future.

Reminder: Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

updated: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 2:55pm
Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

 As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

Entertainment and the Arts in the Quarantimes

 

When the arts, culture, and entertainment industries of the world came to a screeching halt in late winter 2020, many commentators claimed this was the end of art as we know it. Theatre managers and museum directors grasped at straws, trying to stoke excitement via social media and running archival footage in hopes of generating revenue while their seats and halls remained empty. Artists’ opportunities to show or create non-digital work ran dry. Film and television sets were vacated and production put on hold.
