Winslow to Discuss Empathy in Year’s Final Chautauqua Lecture | Eastern Kentucky University

In Eastern Kentucky University’s final Chautauqua lecture of the 2011-12 series Thursday, April 26, an Eastern Kentucky University psychology professor will address the subject of empathy.


Dr. Matthew Winslow, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology, will discuss “the barriers to empathy, what empathy can do for us, and how we can increase empathy in all people.” His talk, titled “Walking A Mile in Your Shoes,” will begin at 7:30 p.m. in O’Donnell Hall of the Student Success Building. The event is free and open to the public.


“What can we do about problems like prejudice, aggression, rudeness and intolerance?” Winslow asked. “I will propose that any answer must involve empathy.”
