Science on Tap

Blondie's Food and Drink
Dr. Christopher Harmon of the HSU Chemistry Department presents, "Quantum Mechanics, LASERS, and Atto-second Technology."

The whole of quantum mechanics can be summarized in a relatively small set of postulates, theorems, and ideas; however, the consequence of these ideas paints a rather bizarre picture of the physical universe when compared to our everyday experiences.

Even so, the predictions made from quantum mechanics are remarkably accurate when compared to experimental observations, which indicates the universe is a much stranger place than one might expect!

Join us as we explore this very strange, very quantized, universe in a discussion of theories constructed from quantum mechanics and modern applications of quantum mechanics such as LASERS and atto-second technology.
7:00 pm

Disability Culture Film and Workshop

Siemens Hall
Does disability have a culture? The idea might seem strange, especially on this campus where people with disabilities don't tend to come together to use disability as an identity platform. Elizabeth Hassler and CouRaGeouS present a space that might help that shift!

This workshop explores our preconceptions of disability and culture through the lens of an emerging "disability culture" movement. So often disability is conceived as harm, or lack: can it also be known as a place of lived experience from which people can make art? What the heck would a "disabled aesthetic" mean, anyway?

Using our experiences together with the "Disability Culture: Research in Motion" documentary as a starting text, we will examine our collective knowledge of disability/culture and see how it interacts with the viewpoints presented in the film. We will also experiment with creating collective knowledge about and from our bodies, and discuss what it might mean to view our bodies as cultural artifacts. Everybody and all perspectives/prior knowledge welcome!

All media used will be captioned and the Siemens Hall bathrooms are gender-binary and mostly wheelchair accessible. For any other access concerns, contact
