CMBC lecture Oct. 13 to focus on race in American politics
Emory Report | Oct. 12, 2016
A lecture series from Emory’s Center for Mind, Brain and Culture designed to highlight hot topics this fall continues Thursday, Oct. 13, with a session on race in American politics.
David C. Wilson, a professor at the University of Delaware who specializes in public opinion and political psychology, will lead the lecture, “Continuing Significance of Race in American Politics: Racial Resentment and the Pain of Progress,” at 4 p.m. in the room 290 of the Psychology and Interdisciplinary Sciences (PAIS) building.
The free session is open to the public and, like other lectures in the series, aims to be of interest to a wide range of faculty and students from multiple disciplines, says CMBC Director Laura L. Namy
“We hope to stimulate conversation among those with diverse perspectives that will enrich the community’s experience as scholars and learners,” she says.
The series will continue through the fall. Future events include:
- Anne Cleary, a psychology professor at Colorado State University, will give a lecture, “How Metacognitive States like Tip-of-the-Tongue and Deja Vu Can Be Biasing,” on Oct. 20.
- Ilina Singh, a professor of neuroscience and society at the University of Oxford, will discuss “Disciplinary Disharmonies: Can There Be a Shared Vision for Global Neuroscience Ethics,” on Nov. 15.
