HATTIESBURG - Dr. Robert Sternberg, a professor of psychology at Yale University and considered one of the premier experts in his field internationally, will be the featured speaker at the second annual Lee Hildman Colloquium Series in Psychology at The University of Southern Mississippi.

Sternberg's presentation, titled "Culture and Intelligence," is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14, at 2 p.m. in the Mannoni Performing Arts Center on the Hattiesburg campus. Admission is free.

Sternberg's presentation was rescheduled from an earlier date last fall.

The colloquium program was established in 2003 in memory of a longtime member of the Southern Miss psychology faculty, Lee Hildman, who passed away in February 2003. Prior to his death, he and his wife, Dr. Tommie Hildman, had discussed making a contribution to the USM Foundation earmarked specifically for use by the Department of Psychology.

Dr. Sternberg is the IBM Professor of Psychology and Education at Yale University. Among his numerous accolades, he has been published more than 950 times, is a member of 12 divisions of the American Psychological Association, has developed eight psychological theories and holds four honorary doctorates from universities in Spain, France, Belgium and Cyprus. He served as president of the APA in 2003.

Dr. Tommie Hildman arranged for the donation through the USM Foundation in spring 2003, and, based on a suggestion made by Dr. Charles Noblin, retired professor in the Southern Miss Department of Psychology, the decision was made to fund a colloquium series in psychology.
