Join midd.data for a Lightning Talk with Chris Herdman (Physics). The familiar phases of matter we encounter every day—solids, liquids and gases—are well described by the laws of classical physics. Yet when matter is cooled down to very low temperatures, quantum mechanical effects can become important and transform ordinary matter into a quantum phase of matter.
Dan Bouk, Associate Professor and Chair of History, Colgate, created a History Lab for students to contribute research to his recent book on the 1940 Census. Join us for lunch to learn about their collaborative work and to discuss ways in which humanists can learn from and teach with all the stuff “shrouded in cloaks of boringness”: bureaucracies, budgets, censuses, and all sorts of public and private numbers.

Join midd.data for a Lightning Talk with Michelle Leftheris (Studio Art). NOWSPACE is an online, live-streaming observatory which collects video from cameras pointed at the sky across North America. In this immersive, web-based artwork, multiple streams are collaged into singular compositions of a synthesized view of the nation’s skies.
