Seton Hall professor Marianne Lloyd will give a talk entitled “Prayers, Puns, and Practice” on the role of memory in imagination, faith, and humor on Tuesday, February 9 at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall Room 120.
Lloyd says she won’t be able to prove that God has a sense of humor, but she hopes to provide evidence that such truth should not come as a surprise. The event is part of the Beckman Humor Project, which celebrates humor as “a creative way to puncture arrogance and outwit violence.”
Lloyd, an associate professor of psychology at Seton Hall, researches memory illusions, teaches statistics and research methods and serves on the Faculty Senate and the Board for the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership. She was the 2015 recipient of the Collegium Visionary Award for her work to bring the Catholic mission into her teaching and scholarship. Her talk is sponsored by the Garaventa Center.
