THE SOUND OF MUSIC! The beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences. We waited for a moment when we could rediscover THE SOUND OF MUSIC as it was originally created. Because of the enormous success of the film, few were aware that it started life as a hit Broadway show—and a very big hit at that! The artists behind this production embraced what the authors wrote, looked at it all through modern eyes and, in so doing, found depth and resonance that has been recognized by critics and audiences across the country. It's like visiting an old friend but finding yourself surprised as well. It's also a reminder of why this show is such an evergreen.

Title: Feminist Ideological Endorsement and Attitudes Towards Transgender People

Description: Although feminism can be defined overall as an ideology supporting the equality of women to men, there are heterogeneous distinctions within feminism, such as liberal feminism, radical feminism, and womanism. There have also been historical tensions between feminist groups and transgender people, as is demonstrated with the exclusion of transgender women at the Michigan Womyn's Festival and the growing use of the term "trans-exclusionary radical feminist." My study sought to examine the relationship between different feminist ideologies and attitudes towards transgender people.

We hope to see you there!

Hello,

You are invited to participate in a study that examines the relationship between several personality characteristics and behavioral variables, including eating behaviors. In order to participate, you must be an adult over the age of 18 and self-identify as female. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete an online survey that will ask about personality and behavioral characteristics. The survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. Participants in the online survey may also be eligible for participation in a follow up study examining the neural processes associated with certain relational personality characteristics and eating behaviors. In this portion of the study, you will complete and questionnaire and participate in an image discrimination task via computer. EEG procedures will be used to examine brain activity. EEG works by recording the electrical activity of a person’s brain. The EEG process involves a cap with electrodes being placed on your head after which you will perform the computerized task while brain activity is recorded. Gel will be placed in holes in the cap and will get into your hair. The gel is non-toxic and washes out easily with a shower. You must be willing to have gel placed in your hair for the EEG section of the study. Participants will first complete a survey. Then, participants who participate in the EEG portion of the study will be eligible for $10 per hour of participation (2 hours total= $20). Directions regarding follow up participation are provided after completion of the survey.
