Card tricks have long been the stock in trade of magicians, who make them appear from thin air, vanish, multiply and even levitate. From both the perspective of a magician and of a psychologist, Covington will explore the power of playing cards to affect elemental forces in ones life such as Life, Love, and even Death.
One word of caution - this lecture is not a magic show for children, even though he will use several magic demonstrations to illustrate some of his main points.
The speaker has a distinguished academic career. He holds the Berkeley presidential Chair in Undergraduate Education and is also Senior Research Psychologist at the Institute for Personality and Social Psychology. He is past president of the International Society for Test Anxiety Research.
Covington has authored eight books and numerous research articles and papers. He has also been a recipient of the Berkeley Distinguished teaching Award and the Phi Beta Kappa Award for Outstanding University Instructor of the Year.
Living on Sea Ranch since 1976 with his wife Bette, Covington has taught continuously for the past 49 years at Cal. The suggested donation for the lecture is $5.00.
