Faculty Meeting: Virtual Wabash 001, 4:15PM - 5:30PM
Wally's Bookshelf: Between the World and Me with Dr. Bobby Horton: Virtual Wabash , 7:00PM - 8:30PM
Join us for this live virtual event being offered for Wabash alumni, spouses, partners, and friends.
Wally's Bookshelf is a casual book discussion led by a Wabash faculty or staff member and provides participants the opportunity to connect with fellow Little Giants. Participants are required to procure and read the book, but the discussion is free.
Join Dr. Bobby Horton, for a book discussion covering Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Dr. Horton and other Wabash faculty will use this book this spring with Wabash freshman in Enduring Questions, their required seminar course. Dr. Horton will also incorporate into this session additional material from Enduring Questions, such as the poetry of Clint Smith.
Robert Horton, Professor of Psychlogy
Dr. Robert (Bobby) Horton is a social and personality psychologist whose research interests are in the origins and consequences of narcissistic self-regard and interpersonal attraction. He serves as Faculty Coordinator of Retention, a role through which he helps guide the Wabash Liberal Arts Immersion Program (a summer bridge program that gives students from traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds a head start on their Wabash career) and acts as the College's liaison to the American Talent Initiative (a group of Colleges devoted to promoting the college recruitment and success of low and moderate-income students).
This will be a classroom-style discussion conducted via Zoom, which may include full and small group discussion. A list of guiding questions will be sent to participants a few weeks prior to each event. Advance registration is required. Space is limited, so register today.
