What do classical music and drug abuse have in common?

Members of the Southwestern community and the general public will have a chance to find out on Thursday, Oct. 16, as Southwestern hosts its second “Paideia Connections” lecture.

The Paideia Connections lecture series features short talks by two faculty members from diverse fields about their recent scholarly work. Following their talks, members of the campus community and the general public are invited to share connections they make between the presentations.

The Oct. 16 event will feature talks by Fay Guarraci, professor of psychology, and Kiyoshi Tamagawa, professor of music. Guarraci will give a talk titled “Breaking Bad or Breaking Good: Drugs of Abuse and Motivation.” Tamagawa will give a talk titled  “My Way or the Highway: ‘Authenticity’ in Classical Music Performance.”

The event will begin at 4 p.m. in Olin 105.

“Paideia Connections” takes its name from Southwestern’s Paideia curriculum, which encourages students and faculty members to make connections between various disciplines and disparate ideas. President Edward Burger initiated the series in spring 2014 in collaboration with Southwestern’s Brown Chairholders and University Scholars, and will serve as the event moderator.

A reception will follow in the Olin lobby.
