ULM's Chautauqua Nexus holds two meetings this week

The Chautauqua Nexus at the University of Louisiana at Monroe will meet Thursday, April 18 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the second floor of the Student Union Building.

Speakers Jean Low, ULM associate professor of Psychology, and Jean Cottingham, also a ULM assistance professor of Psychology, will present a view of emotion as a dynamic associative network of feelings, physiological reactions, motor responses, thoughts, and memories based on the work on Bower and Berkowitz.

On Friday afternoon, April 19 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the SUB, representatives from State Farm and the State Police will talk about the emotion of anger, how it is expressed in road rage, and the consequences of road rage and aggressive driving.

These weekly meetings are informal conversations attempting to connect people of all ages who are interested in intellectual and cultural exchanges. The Chautuaqua Nexus meets every week on the second floor of the Student Union Building on the ULM campus (unless otherwise noted) beginning at 4:30 on Fridays or Saturdays. There are no requirements and everyone is invited to come. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Visitors are welcome to make a small donation for refreshments.
