UW-Sheboygan professors to present Fall 2013 Speakers’ Series
Public lectures open to the community

 

The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan and its faculty, instructors and staff invite the Sheboygan community to its annual Speakers’ Series that will feature UW-S instructors sharing presentations on their research and interest areas.

Topic areas for Fall 2013 will include such disciplines as such psychology, science/chemistry, mathematics and philosophy and will be discussed in an open forum format.

The first presentation for the fall 2013 semester will be held on September 10 at 7 p.m. in the Wombat Room (Room 2114) in the Main Building on the UW-S campus. Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Julie Konik will share a presentation on “We’re All From Earth: The Similarities and Differences Between Men and Women.”

Sheboygan area residents are encouraged to attend this presentation and learn more about how the male and female brain functions and how to better understand each other.

According to Carrie Hoppe, UW-Sheboygan Director of University Relations, the popular annual lecture series allows UW-Sheboygan instructors to showcase their interests and scholarly research in a new way to the community at large.

“As faculty and instructors, these individuals share their knowledge every day in the classroom, but each of them also have special interest areas that they enjoy learning more about whenever they can,” Hoppe said. “This series will allow the presenters to share that research and knowledge with others who might also share similar interests and give the community direct access to the skills and talents of UW-Sheboygan’s outstanding professors to further encourage lifelong learning.”

All presentations will be held in the Wombat Room (Room 2114) at 7 p.m. Admission is free to the community and students. Upcoming presentations also will be held on October 8, November 5 and December 3.
