Brick by Brick
Land has memory, buildings have memories. The untold stories that populate every brick of USC's campus deserve to be listened to, because by listening we question, we honor, and we speak our truth. Intended to be listened to while walking through USC's campus, Brick by Brick allows for a truly immersive theatrical event featuring six stories based on USC’s history researched, written, directed, acted, and sound designed by USC students entirely remotely. Listen to this new audio-theatre experience by the Aeneid Theatre Company.

Looking for Normal-Hearing Adults to Participate in a Study of Hearing.
Come help us learn about how the normal ear functions and get a free hearing test!
We are looking for adults with normal hearing (aged 18-40 years old) to study functioning of the healthy cochlea (inner ear). All participants will first be given a complete hearing test then otoacoustic emissions (sometimes referred to as “cochlear echoes”) will be noninvasively recorded.
Subjects need to sit quietly (and very still) while low-to-moderate-level sounds are presented to the ear through ear buds while a tiny microphone in the ear canal records the response of the inner ear. The participant can watch videos with sub-titles during the test since no response is required.
This session will last approximately 2 hours and participants will be compensated at $10 hr for their time. Parking is provided.
Test sessions will be arranged at the participant’s convenience at the Auditory Research Center (HRA Building on the Health Sciences Campus). If you are interested, study personnel will call or email you with instructions on how to enroll in this study.
NOTE: Testers use rigorous Covid-specific practices as per USC mandates. All research personnel test routinely for Covid. They will use PPE (mask, face shield, gloves) while interacting with participants, test rooms will be carefully disinfected between sessions, and the air is routinely cleaned with HEPA filtration. All participants will be required to wear masks (provided) throughout their test.
The Principal Investigators in charge of this study are:
Professors Carolina Abdala, Ph.D. and Christopher Shera Ph.D., faculty in the Caruso Department of Otolaryngology, Keck School of Medicine.
If interested or if you have questions and would like more information, please contact:

Handling Matters - How format and scale constitute meaning in the arts
In art history, the term handling mainly refers to storing, shipping, or archiving artworks. However, the actual handling also affects the way we perceive art objects haptically, helping us discern their format, scale, and content. Handling, format, and scale interact and constitute an intertwined meaning beyond discursive matter: Format refers to standardized and institutionalized production processes and is often related to normative expectations of the art piece. The scale depends on distributed spatial resources, thus, it is closely linked to processes of appropriating economic and political power.
Handling focuses on perception as a durational process beyond the visual. The guiding question of this workshop is: How do handling, format, and scale relate, alter or challenge the iconic, narrative, and/or political webs of meaning? Through different media from different times, the workshop will trace the meaning-making interplay of handling, format, and scale.
