Lecture to focus on differences, similarities between the sexes
Speakers’ Series lecture at UW-Sheboygan is Sept. 10
Have you ever wondered why your wife, husband or partner just doesn’t seem to understand you, or may respond completely different to the same situation?
It’s because we are different – but amazingly we are also very similar, according to Dr. Julie Konik, UW-Sheboygan Assistant Professor of Psychology.
Dr. Konik will explore the phenomenon of “We’re All from Earth: The Similarities and Differences Between Men and Women,” in the first lecture in the Fall 2013 UW-Sheboygan Speakers’ Series on Tuesday, September 10 at 7 p.m. in Room 2114 (Wombat Room) on the UW-Sheboygan campus. The presentation is free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.
“A variety of popular books have proclaimed that men and women occupy two very different worlds,” Konik said. “The belief that men and women are virtually two different species can also be seen in some academic research. This talk will explore how men and women REALLY are from the same ‘planet,’ demonstrating many more similarities than differences.”
Dr. Konik will cite research from a variety of areas in psychology, including cognitive, developmental, personality and social, to help navigate these similarities and differences in 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.
All presentations are 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.
