Six@Six Lecture Series
Check out a Virtual Season of Six@Six
Six@Six is an annual series of community lectures by NKU’s faculty and students. The series showcases the scholarship and creative work on campus by discussing that work in the community. Normally hosted at venues around the region, including Behringer-Crawford Museum, the series has moved to a special “mini-series” of Six@Six talks using the magic of Zoom and Facebook.
The 2021-22 season will be released in the fall.

Perspectives on Populism
Sept. 30, 6-7:30 p.m.
Who: Jonathan S. Cullick, Philip Moberg, Jeffrey Williams, and Jennifer Kinsley
What: Populism has a storied history in America, as it does in the world. It has, at times, driven progress but it also has, at times, elevated the nation’s negative impulses – including racism and anti-immigration. Our panelists will look at populism through the lens of history, psychology, and literature. Dr. Jeffrey Williams, now retired, was chair of NKU’s Department of History and Geography, and will talk about populist threads in American history. Dr. Philip Moberg directs the graduate program in Industrial and Organizational Psychology at NKU. He’ll discuss the concept of “toxic leaders” and how followers can counteract their potential impact, an important area of emerging research. And Dr. Jonathan S. Cullick, professor in the Department of English, will describe the rhetoric of populism. He has written extensively on “All the King’s Men,” Robert Penn Warren’s iconic novel on populism’s toxic effects in American politics. Our panel will be moderated by Jennifer Kinsley, J.D., associate dean and professor in the Chase College of Law where her research focuses on First Amendment right of free expression.
Where: NKU Griffin Hall, Digitorium and streamed via Zoom
