Earn Money in Economic Experiment!

  • Schulz 1121

Professor Michael Visser, a professor of economics at Sonoma State University, and two economics students are conducting a study of economic decision-making.

Participants will be paid $5 for showing up to the experiment. In addition to the $5 show-up fee, you will be paid for participating, and the amount of money you earn depends on the decisions that you make during the experiment. If you make good decisions, you stand to earn a considerable amount of money. At the end of the experiment you will be paid privately in cash for your decisions. A research foundation has provided the funds for this experiment.

The experiment will be in Schulz 1121, which is on the first floor of the library.  There will be two sessions.  The first is on Tuesday March 28th from 11:45am to 8:30pm, and the second is on Wednesday, March 29th from 6:15pm to 8:30pm. You can come and participate in the experiment any time between 11:45am and 8:30pm on Tuesday, and 6:15pm and 8:30pm on Wednesday, and the experiment should be complete within 30 to 35 minutes. Participants must be at least 18 years old.

The material that we ask participants to read is similar to things found in a newspaper, and none of it is graphic in nature. Although it is unusual, a few participants may find the material that we ask them to read distressing. As a reminder, you can opt out of the study any time. In addition, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers confidential counseling to students experiencing problems. 

We can only guarantee space to the first 150 people who RSVP and show up. Please RSVP for the experiment by emailing Michael Visser at econ.experiment@sonoma.edu. Please include the following information below.

Name:

Major:

Email address:

Please indicate approximately when you plan to show up. 

Even if you don’t RSVP you can stop by on the day of the experiment to see if we still have space.

Queer Studies Lecture, featuring: Johanna Brieding, "Epitaph for Family"

  • Ives 101

Johanna Breiding's practice stems from photography, considering the mediurn's history, its representational role and limits.

Her recent solo show, Epitaph for Family, addresses notions of queerfamily-making, exploring love, intimacy and loss through the image and connotations of the horizon line and the dinner table. Breiding currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in New Genres at the San Frandsco Art Institute.She is based in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and originally from a small viiIage in Switzerland.

Generation Z Goes To College

  • Ballroom B

Say Hello to Your Incoming Class—They're Not Millennials Anymore ! Generation Z is rapidly replacing Millennials on college campuses. Those born from 1995 through 2010 have different motivations, learning styles, characteristics, skill sets, and social concerns than previous generations. Unlike Millennials, Generation Z students grew up in a recession and are under no illusions about their prospects for employment after college. While skeptical about the cost and value of higher education, they are also entrepreneurial, innovative, and independent learners concerned with effecting social change. Understanding Generation Z's mindset and goals is paramount to supporting, developing, and educating them through higher education.

Generation Z Goes to College showcases findings from an in-depth study of over 1,100 Generation Z college students from 15 vastly different U.S. higher education institutions as well as additional studies from youth, market, and education research related to this generation. Authors Corey Seemiller and Meghan Grace provide interpretations, implications, and recommendations for program, process, and curriculum changes that will maximize the educational impact on Generation Z students.

Generation Z Goes to College is the first book on how this up-and-coming generation will change higher education.

Trans/Japan: the re framing of trans as disability in contemporary Japan. Talk & Discussion by Dr. Karen Nakamura, UC Berkeley

  • Ballroom C

In contrast to the United States where trans issues are discussed within the LGBT framework, trans activists (most notably FTM transmen) in Japan have been most successful in presenting themselves as people with a form of disability. They leveraged the translation of transsexuality as “Gender Identity Disability” (GID), which allowed a tremendous amount of rapid social and legal change in the past two decades. This presentation explores why GID was such a powerful concept, especially for the transmen who were its most ardent advocates. "Event organized by SSU's Honor Society for International Scholars (Phi Beta Delta, Zeta Tau Chapter), co-sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, and SYE (Sophomore Year Experience)."
