Event Details

Guest Speakers:

PHILIP ZIMBARDO & NIKITA DUNCAN

David will be hosting a very special City Club Roundtable with Philip Zimbardo, internationally recognized scholar, educator, researcher, and media personality; and Nikita Duncan, co-author of their most recent book The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Are Struggling And What We Can Do About It. 

Zimbardo has been a Stanford University professor since 1968, having taught previously at Yale,, NYU, and Columbia.  His career is noted for giving psychology away to the public through his popular PBS-TV series, Discovering Psychology   He is well known for his Stanford prison study and authorship of various introductory psychology books and textbooks for college students, including The Lucifer Effect and The Time Paradox.  He was also recently president of the American Psychological Association.

Nikita Duncan graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in fine art and psychology.  She combined these interests for her senior thesis, creating a provocative series of paintings, Orgasms: Portraits of Sexual Energy, which resulted in a book, Orgasms: Art & Psyche (with Veronica Money, Blurb, 2009.  She met Phil Zimbardo in San Francisco while her paintings were on exhibit, and she has been collaborating on projects with him ever since.  She assisted him in the early development of the Heroic Imagination Project, the nonprofit he founded in 2008.  She is passionate about research, writing, human sexuality and art. 

In their recent, controversial book, The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Are Struggling And What We Can Do About It,  they outline why they think men are failing in education and personal relationships, claiming that an addiction to video games and online porn have created a generation of shy, socially awkward, emotionally removed, and risk-adverse young men who are unable (and unwilling) to navigate the complexities and risks inherent to real-life relationships, school, and employment.
