Faculty Speaker: Professor Daniel Horowitz

We are pleased to have Daniel Horowitz, Smith College Mary Huggins Gamble Foundation Chair and Professor of American Studies Emeritus, joining us to speak about his new book, Happier? The History of a Cultural Movement That Aspired to Transform America. Copies of Happier? will be available for pre-order when you RSVP.

Professor Horowitz will discuss the history of positive psychology, happiness research and the ways these fields have influenced the lives of millions of people around the world.
