LEWISBURG, Pa. — The psychology department at Bucknell University will host two lectures this week. Both lectures, part of the Series in Children's Studies, are open to the public without charge.
Dr. Debra Stoner, an emergency room physician at Evangelical Hospital, will give the talk, "Children's Health Without Borders: East Meets West," Tuesday, March 30, at 4 p.m. in the Gallery Theatre of the Elaine Langone Center.
An award-winning emergency-room physician and medical adviser for the health clinic in Nangi, Nepal, Stoner has traveled to many cultures to deliver medical care. She will discuss life in other cultures, the nature of health care around the world, and the interaction of Western medicine with indigenous healing practices.
Dr. Cindy Dell Clark will give the talk, "Fools, fairies, ghosts, and other profound tricks of child participation in culture," Thursday, April 1, at 4 p.m. in the Gallery Theatre of the Elaine Langone Center.
A professor at Penn State Delaware County, Clark is the author of two books, Flights of fancy, leaps of faith: Children's myths in contemporary America and In illness and in play: Children coping with chronic illness.
Both lectures are sponsored by Bucknell's Office of Academic Affairs. Contact Chris Boyatzis, associate professor of psychology, at 577-1696, Boyatzis@bucknell.edu for more information.
