These professors will be arguing on behalf of their disciplines why they are the most important and why they should stay on the island of academia instead of the other disciplines. Come watch them support their discipline and argue against the others as you help to decide which three disciplines are the most important and most deserving of staying on the island.

Studies have found that the best musicians spend over 10,000 hours in solitary practice before receiving international recognition. On the other hand, it seems like LeBron James was born to play basketball. This event will explore what it takes to be an expert. What role do genetics play in becoming a virtuoso? Can practice turn anyone into a superstar? And is it too late to get started? Join K. Anders Ericsson, developer of the 10,000 hour rule and Professor of Psychology at Florida State University, and Dean Simonton, author of Genius 101 and Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Davis for a discussion of these questions and more.
Thursday October 6, 7PM.
