Guest Lecture: Pimp My Life
Monday, August 16th, 7pm - 8pm

Tweaked Identities, Tricked-Out Ideas, and Big-Time Transformation. Tom Klinkowstein and Dr. Anna Akbari rethink the traditional, linear career path model as a sort of personalized, labyrinth-like "choose your own adventure" novel, and explore the large-scale significance of personal adaptations and customized lives.
