Graduate Student Talks

Contemporary artists often derive inspiration from various fields of study and explore it through artistic methodologies. To expand on artist interests, MIT graduate students and postdocs are invited to share their field research in conjunction with work on view to provide audiences with a deeper understanding and prompts for thoughtful conversations. 


Timothy Loh

Join Timothy Loh of the Doctoral Program in History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology and Society here at MIT, to discover more about List Projects 24: Sharona Franklin.

This virtual talk will focus on the social life of hearing technologies in Amman, where Loh is currently carrying out dissertation fieldwork on assistive technologies for deaf Jordanians. Loh’s research meets Franklin’s visual art in examining the politics of disability, bioethics, and medical care.
