Psychology Edwards seminar talk with Alex L. White, Ph.D., Barnard College, Columbia University

Can you recognize two written words simultaneously? Updates from the field. , Alex L. White, Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience & Behavior at Barnard College, Columbia University In this abstract, many words are presented to your eyes simultaneously. Can you take advantage of that by processing multiple words in parallel? This question has been investigated with many approaches that have yielded inconsistent answers. I will summarize recent experiments that use two psychophysical paradigms to test quantitative models of parallel and serial processing. One is a “dual-task” paradigm that measures the loss of accuracy caused by dividing attention between two words when the time available for processing them is strictly controlled. The other is the redundant target paradigm, a variant of visual search that compares response times between displays that contain one target versus displays that contain two targets. Our recent findings suggest that the capacity for parallel processing of words… Event interval: Single day event. Campus location: Kincaid Hall (KIN). Campus room: Kincaid 102.

Good Wife, Wise Mother with Fang Yu Hu

On Thursday, October 10 from 3:30 to 5pm in THO 317 and online, Dr. Fang Yu Hu will discuss her latest monograph, Good Wife, Wise Mother: Educating Han Taiwanese Girls Under Japanese Rule (UW Press, 2024). In 1897, two years after Japan began its half-century rise as an imperial power, it inaugurated an ambitious experiment to make modern Japanese citizens out of Han Taiwanese schoolgirls in its first overseas colony, Taiwan. The goal of this education was to train Taiwanese boys and men to become government clerks and teachers, and girls and women to become “good wives, wise mothers” (ryōsai kenbo). This gendered education was part of dōka, the Japanese assimilation program, as it sought to make everyone in the empire “Japanese” as equals by teaching the Japanese language and imperial ethics with gendered roles. Using periodicals, textbooks, fictions, and oral histories and interviews, Hu’s book investigates the creation, implementation, and impact of Japanese colonial education in Taiwan by examining… Event interval: Single day event.
