Poetry reading, career-related talk by [Heather] Claudine Nash ’92 on psychology and writing

Headshot-211x300From Ali Goldberg ’15:

On Thursday, April 23rd from 12-1pm in Judd Hall room 113 Wesleyan alumna, Clinical Psychologist, and writer [Heather] Claudine Nash ’92 will join us for a reading of her recently published book, The Problem with Loving Ghosts, and to share the story of her career journey and the practice of combining the fields of psychology and writing.

[Heather] Claudine Nash ’92 was an English and Psychology double major at Wesleyan, and has since earned two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in Psychology. She currently lives in New York, where she practices Clinical Psychology and writes poetry infused with images and concepts from science and psychology. Her most recent work, The Problem with Loving Ghosts, is a collection of poems about the consequences of clinging too tightly to the past.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about translating interdisciplinary studies into a post-college career, and to support the work of a successful Wesleyan alum.

The event is hosted by the student leaders of Psi Chi, Wesleyan’s chapter of the National Honor’s Society in Psychology. All Wesleyan students and faculty are welcome.

Date: Thursday, April 23
Time: 12-1 PM
Place: Judd Hall, room 113

Nash’s poetry can be found here, on her website.
