Making Gumbo

Mon, 14 Sep 2009


I am available for speaking engagements. In my talks and presentations I stick close to my areas of expertise; interpersonal and intergroup relationships. On the topic of interpersonal relationships one of my more popular presentations is “What If the Requirements of Love Are Not the Requirements of the Relationship?” I have given this talk to high school and college students to try an help them understand how they are tripping themselves up in their attempts to build romantic relationships.

On the topic of intergroup relationships, I have been giving a talk, presentation entitled “Living on the New Racial Frontier.” That talk comes out of my course “Interpersonal Relationships and Race,” and out of the book manuscript I have just completed with that title. The point of this talk is to help people understand how all of the dramatic social changes in our society have created social uncertainty about how to interact with the diversity of people we all now come in contact with, everyday. I have given this talk on my own campus as well as at Ohio State University. I can be reached at:
