The seminar includes critical analysis of Ekman’s methods as well as Professor Freshman’s own research at Harvard Business School and elsewhere. Professor Freshman’s published research appears in journals at Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, UCLA, and elsewhere. International media from Danish Broadcasting to PBS to the Wall Street Journal have covered his work.
