IUP will host a “Psychology Potluck” conference October 23, 2010.
The event is open to all faculty and students from universities throughout the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. It is being organized by the Psychology Department faculty and will include luncheon remarks by David Werner, interim president.
The conference, the first of its type, will feature presentations of what has been deemed the best research by faculty members and students from PASSHE universities. Topics of the research to be presented include sexual desire, time pressure, humanistic therapy, memory for flavors, teaching, and sports fandom.
The program includes a keynote address by Department of Psychology professor Krys Kaniasty at 9:00 a.m. titled “United or Divided? Social Psychological Reactions to Natural Disasters, Technological Catastrophes, Acts of Violence, and Terror.”
Registration is available at the door (Uhler Hall lobby), and the cost is $30 for faculty and $15 for students. Potluck events take place in Uhler and Johnson halls and in Breezedale. For more information, call the Psychology Department at 724-357-2426.
