Commemorating the three-year anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, Dr. Carrie Nassif (NAH-siff), assistant professor of psychology, presented the lecture "Psychological Theories of Intergroup Conflict and Solutions" on Sept. 11, 2004, at the Hays Public Library, 1205 Main St.
Nassif, along with four other Fort Hays State University instructors, gave lectures at the Hays library as part of "The September Project" -- a national event in which citizens gathered on Sept. 11 at public libraries to discuss and share ideas about democracy, citizenship and patriotism through talks, roundtables and performances.
? I think there?s a lot of people who still have Sept. 11 on their minds or still think about it in some form,? she said.
Nassif's lecture dealt with the terror management theory and also focused on group conflict and reasons and solutions for it.
She joined the roster of FHSU speakers after she was approached about speaking at the event by Dr. Carol Patrick, chair of the Psychology Department.
" I hope that more than anything, even if people didn't understand the lecture or disagreed with it, that they think about it," Nassif said.
