Does Religion Impact Consumer Behavior?

Tuesday, May 8 | 12 p.m.
Kostas Research Institute, 141 South Bedford St., Burlington, MA
$6 per person

Have you ever wondered how your upbringing affects your behavior as a consumer? Dr. Mathras will present her research on the subject, and outline the role that religious beliefs, values, rituals, and community play in our everyday decisions. She will also present findings on the effects of consumer confessions on subsequent consumer behavior in the health and environmental domains (e.g. “I confess, I just ate an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting”).

Speaker: Dr. Daniele Mathras, Assistant Professor of Marketing, D’Amore-McKim School of Business

Security and Resilience in a Post-Event World

Wednesday, May 16 | 12 p.m.
Kostas Research Institute, 141 South Bedford St., Burlington, MA
$6 per person

We often frame the world in terms of salient events. This talk examines how rooting our thinking in a particular event can frame our viewpoint of the world and lock us into a particular course of action and response. Dr. Gruber will also examine how to move beyond locking ourselves into a thought process
or event pattern.

Speaker: Craig W. Gruber, Associate Teaching Professor; Director, College of Professional Studies Security Programs
