With the work-from-home and social-distancing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, those public spaces went quiet, but virtual meeting technologies and social media were able to step in and address many of those human connection needs. As the city comes out of the pandemic response, we have a different perspective on technology in cities: what roles will technology continue to play in our public spaces? What were they already doing? What are the ramifications of new technologies in our public spaces -- the ones we can see and the ones we can't -- and what should we be thinking about as technologies and our city continue to evolve? This event, part of a new series of talks on urban design presented by the PSU School of Architecture and the PSU Urban Design Collaborative, brings together Dawn Nafus and Hector Dominguez in a conversation about technology and its role in the city. Dawn Nafus is a Senior Research Scientist at Intel, where she conducts anthropological research on technology and society issues, including the social implications of health and environmental data, citizen science, and responsible AI. She is the editor of Quantified: Biosensing Technologies in Everyday Life (MIT Press, 2016), co-author of Self-Tracking (MIT Press 2016) and co-editor of Ethnography for a Data-Saturated World (Manchester University Press, 2018).  She holds a PhD from the University of Cambridge. Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland, Oregon and part of the Smart City PDX team. In addition to Open Data initiatives, Hector has led privacy and information initiatives in the City that includes use of ethical tools for technology solutions assessment, privacy and information protection principles, establishing the citywide privacy and surveillance technologies strategies and procedures, and policy development including the face recognition technologies and Surveillance policies.

She researches the impacts of anthropogenic stressors, in particular urbanization, on environments and the subsequent consequences for biodiversity. Her lab uses insect populations as model systems, examining changes in their diversity and development. Dr. Beasley also studies the interactions of sociological and ecological processes to understand urban biodiversity and the development of resilient cities. She received her PhD from University of South Carolina in 2013. https://pdx.zoom.us/j/87540422814 ljansen@pdx.edu ljansen@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public

Add to my Calendar 2021-05-18 18:00:00 2021-05-18 20:00:00 Hilarity Unleashed: Japan's Ever-Popular Stage Comedy - Kyôgen Kyôgen (literally “Crazy Words”) is Japan’s enduring and ever-popular traditional stage comedy. It was also Japan’s only cultural expression of humanism and equality in the medieval era. Kyôgen plays remain popular and relevant today because they overturn social and political hierarchies, and do so by debunking and laughing at the wealthy and powerful. Kominz has studied and performed kyôgen plays on multiple occasions in Japan, and he directs student performers here at PSU. In his presentation Kominz will introduce this remarkable art form, and show video highlights of hilarious moments from great plays. This lecture sets the stage for public stage performances by PSU students later in May. May 18, 2021 6 PM in Japan - May 19th, 10 AM Professor Laurence Kominz received his Ph.D. in Japanese literature from Columbia University under the supervision of Donald Keene. Kominz’ writing and research specialty is Japanese drama, and he has taken performance lessons in noh, kyôgen, kabuki, and gidayû bushi recitation. Kominz teaches courses in Japanese language, literature, drama, and film, and he directs fully realized kabuki and kyôgen plays in English. Recent kabuki plays include The Revenge of the 47 Loyal Samurai and The Castle Tower. In 2018 and 2019 Kominz’ students performed kyôgen plays here at PSU and in St. Louis, Massachusetts, and Victoria, Canada.
