AnthroTech MeetUp - II

Please join us for the 2nd AnthroTech MeetUp with two terrific speakers. Max Foxman, a PhD candidate at Columbia University, will discuss his recent ethnographic and theoretical work on why people use gamified online products like Foursquare. He'll also address his current work on people's interaction with "Internet culture." April Strickland is a documentary filmmaker and a Ph.D. candidate in the Anthropology Department at New York University. She works with indigenous Maori film and television producers in New Zealand to investigate contemporary connections between media, sovereignty, and social movements.

We'll also have audience Q&A time followed by freeform networking made more fun by the FREE WINE that we'll have for you!

    Good meetup wish I could've stayed for longer. 1) I would love links to papers that were discussed!
    2) Is April screening the film at any point? Would love to get more in depth on this topic.

      We are debating a google hangout option for tonight. If you have google plus accounts and can get me your email (to [masked]) before the talk starts, we might be able to get it functioning. Can't promise, but we will try.
