Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, a research professor in the psychology department at Clark University, will give a lecture titled “Emerging Adulthood: The New Life Stage from Age 18 to 25” on Feb. 11 at 4:30 p.m. in Rehm Library at the College of the Holy Cross. The lecture, sponsored by the psychology department, Montserrat, the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, and the student development office, is free and open to the public.
“Through this lecture, students have the opportunity to further understand how the society that they will graduate into may be viewing them,” says Amy Wolfson associate dean of the faculty and professor of psychology, who is currently team teaching “Liberal Arts Leadership and Social Change” with Patricia Bizzell, a professor in the English department. “For students, that understanding is key to understanding the world into which they will graduate, as well as key to understanding what kind of contribution and change they can make in that world.”
Arnett previously taught at the University of Missouri and was a 2005 Fulbright Scholar at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He is the editor of the Journal of Adolescent Research and author of the books “When Will My Grown-Up Kid Grow Up?” (Workman Publishing Company, May 2013) with Elizabeth Fishel, and “Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties” (Oxford University Press, 2004). He is also the founding president and executive director of the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood (www.ssea.org).
Arnett’s wife Lene Jensen is also a professor at Clark. The couple has two children, twins Miles and Paris.
