Goolsby Leadership Academy Presents Caroline Keating, Ph.D., Nov. 20

Caroline Keating, Ph.D. is a faculty member at Colgate University where she has been a teacher/scholar in the psychology department for many Dr. Caroline Keatingyears. Dr. Keating received her doctorate in psychology from Syracuse University, where she studied social dominance across cultures and species. Together with colleagues and student collaborators, she discovered that humans convey dominance through facial expressions akin to those of other primates; that facial features which make people appear powerful also make them seem untrustworthy; that people who are socially powerful have unusually good acting skills; and that persuasive performances begin with kidding yourself. Dr. Keating’s study of dominance and deception was originally funded by a grant from the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation.

Dr. Keating’s research has been featured in the print media in the United States and abroad, on radio talk shows, and on television, including PBS's "Scientific American Frontiers," "Dateline NBC," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," The Learning Channel, and ABC’s "Good Morning America."  As a general interpreter of social psychological phenomena, she has appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and the ABC News programs “20/20” and “What Would You Do?”

At Colgate, Dr. Keating teaches specialty seminars in leadership, social bonds, and cross-cultural human development.
