As I review the speakers that we've heard this semester, the ones that I continue to be inspired by were Carl Flink and Jane Blocker. I work with Prof. Blocker quite a bit and respect her very critical approach to investigating the body and performance.
Carl Flink impressed me and inspired me to work collaboratively. I respect how he strives for specialization within his field, but challenges who and what that specialization can be used for. I appreciated his willingness to instruct us on the how he and his team conduct experiments and involved us in that process.
