This Saturday, March 19, several of the world’s preeminent psychologists will honor Swarthmore College professor Barry Schwartz by participating in a symposium at the college, entitled “Why We Work with Barry Schwartz.”

The Swarthmore community is invited to attend the symposium, in which host Martin Seligman, Hazel Markus, and Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman will talk about their collaborations with Schwartz and the work he has inspired. Schwartz will retire at the end of this semester as Dorwin P. Cartwright Professor of Social Theory and Social Action.

Sessions begin at 11 a.m. and continue through 5:30 p.m., with a break from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The symposium will be held in Lang Concert Hall; attendees are also invited to a reception following in the LPAC lobby.
