If you missed our book launch party last month, here’s another chance to hear from several of our greatest hits presenters. Last month we released our debut book, How to Win Friends and Influence Fungi: Collected Quirks of Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math from Nerd Nite, published by St. Martin’s Press (an imprint of Macmillan).  This month we’ll showcase two presenters from the book and a history comedian. Join us for presentations about useless studies that changed the world, where our toilets go to, and how Americans get it on. It’s great to be back in Manhattan! Tickets here.

Back to the Lectures At-Hand:
*Presentation #1
Five Useless Studies that Changed the World
by Dr. Lillian Park


Bio: Lillian Park is an Associate Professor of Psychology at SUNY Old Westbury. In 2018 she drew the short end of the stick and became the Chair of the Psychology Department. Her life is not at all like the Netflix series, The Chair. Lillian earned her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley and completed a three-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Rotman Research Institute in Toronto, Canada. Her research interests are in autobiographical narratives and the scholarship of teaching and learning. When she is not professing, Lillian runs for Prospect Park Track Club. When she doesn’t talk about being hot at Nerd Nite, she talks about kimchi, which is simply a different kind of being hot.

*Presentation #2
American History Sex
by Bobby Sheehan

Description: How would James Madison do on Tinder? Which U.S. president had the best dying words? Did the Union troops write the original diss track? All of this and more with comedian, history lover, and self-lover Bobby Sheehan.

Bio: Bobby Sheehan is a standup comedian, history buff, and generous lover. He regularly performs at The Stand NYC in Manhattan, The Tiny Cupboard in Brooklyn, and any bar that serves Diet Coke. You may have seen him in the New York Comedy Festival. You may have seen him on Comedy Fight Club. You may have read him writing in the 3rd person.
