(CANCELLED) Lecture: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups
Start Date: 2/22/2015Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 2/22/2015

Event Description:

Speakers: 
Amy Chua, John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale Law School 

Jed Rubenfeld, Robert R. Slaughter Professor of Law at Yale Law School

Why do some groups rise over others? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld reveal the secrets to success from their controversial New York Times bestseller The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America, at WSHU Public Radio's "Join the Conversation." According to these authors, the “Triple Package” is a rare and potent cultural constellation of three elements: a superiority complex, insecurity and impulse control. Chua and Rubenfeld acknowledge that it is difficult to talk about the relative success of some ethnic or cultural groups because the topic feels racially charged, yet they also claim that the facts actually debunk racial stereotypes.

A book signing will follow the lecture. Books will be available for purchase.
