Culture Matters: Why Personal Happiness Isn’t Necessarily All It’s Cracked Up to Be
3:30pm EDT March 12, 2014
Cushing Hall - Stevens Auditorium
Dr. Meetu Kholsa, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Delhi, India, will invite you to reflect upon who you are as a person. She will show you how many of your cherished notions of who you are may, in fact, be peculiarities of culture. If you grew up in India, you wouldn’t be the person you are today!
FREE and open to all.
Dr. Kholsa’s research includes the study of emotion, happiness, emotional coping, emotional facial expressions and communication, and culture. She is the author of Physiological Psychology: An Introduction (in press, Tata McGraw-Hill) and numerous articles and other scholarly publications.
This lecture is sponsored by the Merrimack College Dept. of Psychology.
