Four-Minute Lecture: Professor Anna Curtis

Welcome to Four-Minute Lectures.  All semester, we will be bringing in professors you know and love to deliver Four-Minute micro-lectures for the betterment of our minds.  They will encompass a wide variety of topics and departments.

curtisThis week’s Four-Minute Lecture is with Anna Curtis, a visiting professor with the Legal Studies program.  This lecture is entitled “Birth Control Rant.” As usual, fitting a lecture into a four minute slot didn’t quite work out, but Professor Curtis’ discussion makes us realize how birth control has changed the nature of modern relationships.

Watch the lecture after the jump!

  • Can I take a class with this Professor next year? Can Kenyon keep her? She is amazing.

    • Nah, legal studies doesn’t have the money to give her a tenure track position. Also, as far as I know, she wants to work at a larger university.

      Regardless, yes she is awesome.

  • Yes, we shall have these lectures “all semester.” Great timing there.

  • Wow… forget that last post, apparently I’ve missed the others.

  • I love you Anna Curtis! Damn the socy department for not recognizing what they’re losing by letting you go. Give Curtis a tenure position!

  • “people have been fucking each other’s brains out probably since the dawn of the human species…”

  • Seems like a nice lady, but a professor?!

    • She is an excellent professor! Then entire sociology department at this school (save for Villegas) are old fogies stuck in the mud. We need some new ideas to shake things up!

      • Ahhhhhh … The “new idea” approach. It was once said by Mark Twain, “There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”
