From the famous ‘I have a dream’ speech by Martin Luther King to referring to America as the land of dreams, society often guides us toward creating a dream, or aspiration, to attain. Studies show that those dreams may change over time due to age, race, gender, and societal factors.
To get the low down on higher intentions, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with three authors about what we dream of and why we have longer to acquire our aspirations.
Co-authors Karen Cerulo and Janet Ruane share the findings from their book, Dreams of a Lifetime: How We Imagine Our Future and discuss how dreams differ based on a person’s lot in life.
Former president and publishing director of Hearst Magazines, Michael Clinton shares statistics gleaned from his research while writing his inspirational book, Roar: Into the Second Half of Your Life (Before It’s Too Late). Michael contends that life after 50 is the perfect time to expand our horizons and nurture and develop what is important to us.
Professor Karen A. Cerulo of Rutgers University and Professor Janet M. Ruane (Roo-ON) of Montclair State University specialize in cultural sociology and social inequality.
Their work has been widely quoted in the press, including venues such as Le Monde, Mycentraljersey.com, The New York Daily News, The New Republic, The New York Times, North Jersey.com, Psychology Today, The Post Courier, The Scientific American, Slate Magazine, The Times of India, and USA Today.
