The Shackouls Honors College at Mississippi State is pleased to continue The Orators program on Wednesday, Nov. 14 with Dr. Corey Keyes. Keyes, a sociologist and a psychologist in the Department of Sociology at Emory University, will present “Finding Me Through The Search for Happiness” at 2 p.m. in Griffis Hall, Room 401 on the MSU campus. Admission is free.
As a teacher and a researcher, Keyes is best known for his work in “positive psychology.” His interests in mental health, methods for attaining positive social relationships, and the psychology of aging have made him a much sought-after speaker. Author of many books and articles, his mental health model has been adopted by the Canadian Public Health Agency into its surveillance program.
The Orators program kicked off in September during the Honors College’s annual Classical Week. It is a year long program which invites speakers, representing various academic disciplines and topics, to engage and enrich the university and local communities in research, course work and public lectures. Since the Honors College touches all colleges at MSU through curriculum design, active research and special events, there is a specific theme for each year. The theme for this first year is “Searching for Self: Who Am I Anyway?”
A reception to meet the speaker follows the lecture.
This program is made possible through a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council. For additional information, contact Donna Clevinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 662-325-2522.
