|The Hospitalities of Fiction
Novels bring many things to their readers: characters, curious events, whole geographies, revelations of somebody’s truths. They also bring other readers. The presence of readerships in novels is not just something we know as an inert abstraction (like book sales statistics) but something novels make us feel. They advertise themselves as shared experiences. In their plotting they give us what we’ve spent centuries demanding, en masse. As objects circulating in the world they accumulate reputations that mean something to those who keep their company. And we can know and imagine others through the books we share as readers. Meeting someone who loves a book you love is not a trivial thing. This lecture will explore this mostly unconsidered dynamic of the reading experience. When we look for it, evidence of “reader affiliation” in fiction shows up nearly everywhere in literary history and in ways that might matter to how we read individual literary texts and measure their social and civic force.Click here to view a recording of this event.(Part of the Karl W.

|She Se Puede: Applying Intersectional Scholarship in STEM Equity Work
In spring 2021, Professor Gonzalez and Professor Scerbo co-founded the Intersectional Culture & Psychology Lab, a research laboratory designed to enhance research experiences and visibility for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students. This inclusive space conducts research on marginalized groups and aims to identify solutions that address social justice issues. With this lab, they aim to foster research and intellectual curiosity that promote the visibility, support, and inclusion of marginalized students and, in particular, young women of color in their fields.
In this talk, Professor Gonzalez and Professor Scerbo will discuss the creation of the Intersectional Culture & Psychology Lab and will present results from their most recent study on the experiences of BIPOC students at Allegheny. They will also cover how student research assistants in their lab learn to notice whose voices are missing, review and correct research questions asked, question policies and programs, and connect what they discover to larger systems of oppression.
