New PsyD Student Speaker Series Kicks Off

Given the unique array of talents and strengths of our student body, we are starting a PsyD Student Speaker Series called “Afternoon Talks”. We invite any student who would like to have a forum for speaking about a special interest or topic that is related to psychology to submit a proposal to Lorraine Mangione, PhD or Colby Smith, PhD outlining the subject matter and its relevance to psychology. We encourage a variety of formats and topics for the presentations.

For our first “Afternoon Talk” we are pleased to have Rachel Feller, a fourth year student, speaking about her book, “Silent Witnesses: Civilian Camp Money of World War II”, on November 5th in Room 206. In March, Ray Feller and her father, Steve Feller, released a new full-color book about the money used in civilian camps in World War II. The book covers money used (and not used) in concentration camps, ghettos, internment camps, and displaced persons camps in almost every continent across the world. The book includes images of the notes as well as historical information about camp life. This book is the culmination of five years of research through survivor stories, diaries, official documents, books, journals, and material found in on-site research.
