Danielle Norberg joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Danielle Norberg has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists™ (LFFFHCfSS). She says:

Some cultures see long hair as part of or as an extension to their sensory system; members of such cultures believe or even experience the loss of important abilities when their hair is cut. For others, their long hair contains their strength. My academic discipline refrains from discounting such beliefs and experiences. So I cannot possibly run the risk of losing my academic or other abilities by ever cutting my hair short. Ergo, for the sake of research and my academic future I must keep my hair as long as possible. Everything else would be irresponsible.

Chantal Roggeman joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Chantal Roggeman has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS). She says:

I have been told I may never cut my hair, because people would no longer recognize me. Indeed, in international gatherings, I am recognized as “the woman with the long blond hair”. Blond is my trademark, and I enjoy making “dumb blond” jokes in the first person. I have occasionally colored my hair blue, green, orange, purple, pink and fluo-yellow, which I then classify as “artificial intelligence”.

Daniel Rathbun joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Daniel Rathbun has joined the LFHCfS – The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists. He says:

“They’ll never let you have long hair in the real world. You’ll never get a real job looking like a hippy.” I was told in small-town Texas.  Well I showed them!  I showed them all!!! —especially the blind patients whose visual prostheses I help to develop. (The young me is shown in this photo flanked by inspirations and Nobel Laureates David Hubel and Torsten Wiesel.) Now I now apply my talents to bionic vision and inspiring future generations of luxuriantly coiffed young scientists.

Emily Hofstetter joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Emily Hofstetter has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists™ (LFFFHCfSS). She says:

While considering an academic career, I quickly realized that an ability to afford hair cuts was a necessary sacrifice, and have been practicing said asceticism ever since. As of 2018 my hair reaches my knees, and I can but pray my wisdom grows with the same dogged persistence. My locks hide tidily in a bun most days, allowing me to reveal my hair in a highly effective display whenever I wish to astonish students and emphasize the effects of Goffmanian front and performance in everyday life.
