May 9, 2016
In this episode, Dr. Richard Russell, Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at Gettysburg College discusses his work on prosopagnosia [facial blindness] and super-recognizers, and how differently we all “see.”  He also shares some of his current work that involves standards of beauty, the use of make-up, and both cultural differences and similarities.  His work raises larger questions about what we view as “normal,” and how we view ourselves in relationship to others.  Don’t miss this interesting episode!
