Spring Quarter classes at UCLA start today! Every Monday for the next 10 weeks I'll be commuting down to Los Angeles and back to teach my favorite freshman seminar "Gender, Appearance, and Inequality: From Contemporary Feminism to Evolutionary Psychology." This is the third year I've taught the class, and I'm psyched to dive back in. Students, if you're reading this, here's the scoop: I'm tough, but fair, and the class is super fun and (I hope) potentially life-changing!
In other exciting news, I'm giving a talk about my no-mirrors project at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut this Wednesday evening. How sweet is this flyer they made for the event?! Trinity has decided to kick off the week with a "No-Mirrors Monday" - how cool!?! - and I can't wait to meet the students who organized the event. If any of you are live near Hartford I'd love to see you at the talk, which is open to the public. Here are the dirty details: Wednesday, April 4th, 7PM, Washington Room in Mather Hall.
