Please join us on Thursday, April 27th at 1pm in N227 (Faculty Commons) for the City Tech Community Roundtable - a new seminar series made of short talks that aims to bring together faculty and students to share our scholarly and creative work and learn about what our colleagues across disciplines are doing, and restore and nurture our college's vibrant intellectual community. Our second event features three awesome speakers: Dr Javiela Evangelista, who will tell us about "Race and Technology Academic Program", and a student-faculty team composed by Jake Postiglione and Dr Giovanni Ossola, speaking about "Smart Physics: A Lab in your Pocket." As you can see, the topics promise to be of wide interest for faculty and students, and we hope to see many there. Also, you are welcome to bring your lunch, but as usual we will have coffee and the good cookies! Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday. The Research Council WG4
