The annual Kenan Distinguished Lecture in Ethics brings a distinguished speaker to campus to address moral issues of broad social and cultural significance. Professor Paul Ekman will deliver this year's lecture, entitled "When, Why, and Should We Lie: The Science Behind Lie to Me." In 1991, Ekman was awarded the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award, the American Psychological Association's highest award for basic research. In 2001, he was named by the American Psychological Association as one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century. And in 2009, TIME Magazine listed him as one of the top 100 most influential people of that year. Ekman's work in psychology and facial expression is the basis behind the popular TV show, "Lie to Me." He'll discuss emotion, expression, and deceit.FREE PARKING is available in the Sanford School of Public Policy lot, at the corner of Science Drive and Towerview Road.
