The day's topics include lectures on psychology, playwrights, political science and archeology by award-winning teachers.

From 10-11am, Dr. Daniel Ogilvie, professor of Psychology at Rutgers, will discuss the causes and consequences of soul beliefs—whether the soul is what separates us from other species or whether it is
From 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m., Dr. Martha Carpentier, professor at Seton Hall University, will discuss the topic of her current research, Susan Glaspell, whose eleven plays and co-creation of the Provincetown Players were crucial to the origins of American drama.
