“On Life and Death”: CHP Becker Lunch with Sheldon Solomon, October 26

On October 26, we are excited to welcome Dr. Sheldon Solomon, psychologist and Professor at Skidmore College. From Skidmore’s website: “His studies of the effects of the uniquely human awareness of death on behavior have been supported by the National Science Foundation and Ernest Becker Foundation, and were featured in the award winning documentary film Flight from Death: The Quest for Immortality. He is co-author of In the Wake of 9/11: The Psychology of Terror and The Worm at the Core: On the Role of Death in Life. Sheldon is an American Psychological Society Fellow, and a recipient of an American Psychological Association Presidential Citation (2007), a Lifetime Career Award by the International Society for Self and Identity (2009), and the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs Annual Faculty Award (2011).”

Dr. Solomon has partnered with our own Dr. Hulsey on a summer study abroad at Oxford University for many years and will be speaking with us ‘the role of death in life.’

Interested students should read the following two articles in preparation for the discussion.
