Hanna Rosin, Common Reading Lecture
What happens when we respond to conflict in the opposite way people expect us to? Hanna Rosin, award-winning journalist and co-host of NPR’s Invisibilia, addresses the 2017–18 university theme, “conflict,” by explaining the concept of “noncomplementarity.” Proceeding from real-life stories and experiments, Rosin will discuss how noncomplementarity—behavior that is unexpected for a given situation—can lead to fascinating results. Rosin's career includes writing for The Atlantic and Slate, appearing on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and The Today Show, and headlining at the first TEDWomen conference. She is author of The End of Men: And the Rise of Women and God's Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America.
