Spring 2022 Sample Classes
- Fri, March 11: 4:00-5:00pm: Our Speech and What It Signals: Speaker-Receiver Dynamics and Implications of The Words We Choose
The topic is related to the psychology of language. Dr. Pastizzo will share two experiments that Geneseo students enjoy. One is on how hedge word usage (um, uh) actually helps the listener, and the other is on how negative framing to express something positive like competance (e.g., not stupid) can actually perpetuate stereotypes.
Most students will take a psychology course at some point in their college career, so this will be a great introduction to some of the fascinating subjects you might learn about!
- Fri, April 1: 4:00-5:00pm: One Half Gallon of Bacteria
Whether you like it or not, you are host to billions of bacteria that live in and on your body. Your skin, mouth, intestines, and the insides of your own cells provide unique environments to keep bacteria alive. But, what if those bacteria are the ones keeping you alive? In this lecture, Dr. Rob Feissner from the Biology Department invites you (and your bacteria) to learn about the fascinating world of prokaryotes; What are they, what do they do, and where would we be without them?
