Event Description
The Psychological Consequences of Thinking About Time in Terms of Money

Sanford DeVoe '00 University of Toronto

Deborah Kemler Nelson Lecture in Psychology

The Psychology Department is pleased to announce that the first Deborah Kemler Nelson Lecture in Psychology will be delivered by Dr. Sanford DeVoe (Swarthmore, class of 2000) on October 29 at 4:30 PM, Scheuer Room, Kohlberg Hall. This lecture series honors our distinguished colleague and celebrated mentor to undergraduates, Professor Deborah Kemler Nelson, who retired in 2012, by bringing early career-stage Swarthmore graduates who have gone on to research careers in psychology back to campus to talk about their work.

This year's speaker, Sanford DeVoe, went on from Swarthmore to earn a Ph.D. at Stanford University, after which he joined the faculty at the Rotman School of Business at the University of Toronto. A description of the talk follows: This talk will discuss a program of research examining how organizational practices (e.g., hourly payment and billable hours) that highlight the connection between time and money can change the way we think and make decisions about time outside the workplace. Organizational practices that increase the salience of a connection between time and money systematically focus people on the monetary returns of time as evidenced by a greater willingness to give up more free time to earn more money, a diminished propensity to volunteer one's time outside of work, and an increased focus on economic factors in the evaluation and experience of happiness.
