The “Cinderella Story” is ubiquitous in American culture and is used in all sorts of ways to tell the story of someone suffering undeserved neglect that is suddenly lifted to significance; paralleling the story of the American Dream but with marked differences.

Join Dr. Sabrina Starnaman as she shares her view on how the Cinderella story and the American Dream story get intertwined. This presentation will provoke our thinking about what we want from the Cinderella story, especially in the context of our desire for American-style success.

About Tech on Tap:

No reservations required, no admittance or fee, bring your curiosity and an open mind! The Office of Research at The University of Texas at Dallas sponsors Tech On Tap as an outreach opportunity for interested members of the community to come hear the leading experts in a variety of fields discuss their programs. Generally a 20-30 minute presentation followed by conversation, the attendees may enjoy dinner and hoist a drink or two without upsetting the presenter. Drinks are on you. Knowledge is on us.
