News Watchdog

Pick a news website or several local blogs and visit the sites every day. Look for an article that relates to less visible aspects of your identity such as religious identity, national identity, sexual identity or generational identity. When you find one, copy the link, return to Experimonth on Science Buzz and paste the link to the article into an new comment box on the "News Watchdog" Buzz page.

Shutterbug

Add a video or snap photos of art, advertising, publications, or every day life that show people, organizations or companies portraying gender stereotypes or anything contrary to those stereotypes. Upload your images and comment on other images on the "Shutterbug" Buzz blog.
*Note: Only registered users can upload images.*

About once a week assignments

Snapshot

Without actually photographing yourself, document your identity in photos. Take pictures of your clothes, personal objects, people you associate with, and/or the places you visit-- anything that you think represents your identity. Post one or two photos a week to the "Snapshot" Buzz blog.

About once a month assignments

Beaker and Brush Discussion

Join us at the Aster Café for an identity-related Beaker and Brush discussion, a program developed by the Science Museum as a forum for bringing together an artist and a scientist to explore topics from the perspective of both disciplines. The speakers will discuss aspects of identity such as "How is identity formed psychologically, and how does what we see form our opinions of others’ identity?" Log on to the "Beaker and Brush" Buzz blog before and after the event to post questions and continue the discussion.

Beaker and Brush: Identity
