Event Description

Full Description:
The Australian Anthropological Society and The University of Queensland invite you to the 2012 Distinguished Lecture in Anthropology and Inaugural Public Lecture in Anthropology.

Through the Looking Glass: recasting anthropology in the 21st century will be the topic presented by Dr. Genevieve Bell, an Australian-born anthropologist and researcher.

As director of User Interaction and Experience in Intel Labs, Dr. Bell leads a research team of social scientists, interaction designers, human factors engineers and computer scientists.

This team shapes and helps create new Intel technologies and products that are increasingly designed around people’s needs and desires.

In this team and her prior roles, Dr. Bell has fundamentally altered the way Intel envisions and plans its future products so that they are centered on people’s needs rather than simply silicon capabilities.

In addition to leading this increasingly important area of research at Intel, Dr. Bell is an accomplished industry pundit on the intersection of culture and technology.

The 6.00pm lecture will be followed by refreshments at 7.00pm.

RSVP: Tuesday, 18 September, 2012.
