J. James Woods Lecture Series: Beth Loftus: The Fiction of Memory

This event takes place in Atherton Union, Reilly Room. This event is free and open to the public, no tickets required.

Distinguished professor at the University of California—Irvine, Elizabeth Loftus is a reknown expert in the malleability of human memory. Her work has led to her being called in as an expert or consultant in hundreds of cases including: the trial of the officers accused in the Rodney King beating, the Oklahoma Bombing case, and litigation involving Michael Jackson, Martha Stewart, and more.

The “Woods” Series was established by a generous gift from the estate of J. James Woods. The goal of the Woods bequest is to bring prominent mathematicians and scientists to Butler University in order to speak on theories at the frontier of their disciplines, as well as on related technologies and other issues of public concern.
