November 20, 2014 Forum: "Losing Your Self in India" by Dr. Matthew Whoolery
On Thursday, November 20th at 2:00pm in the Taylor Chapel, we were privileged to hear from one of our own in a college forum. Brother Matthew Whoolery of our Psychology Department spoke on "Losing Your Self in India." As a recent Fulbright Scholar, Brother Whoolery went to India in 2012-2013 and taught in the Psychology Department at Lady Shri Ram College at the University of Delhi. He traveled extensively in India and interacted extensively with Indian psychologists and students. In 2014, he was asked to return to Delhi to give a TED talk that is titled "How to Be Unhappy." He will discuss his experiences and draw upon people he met who illustrate important cultural differences which present a different way of viewing life, relationships, and religion.
