Jennifer Talarico, professor of psychology and department head, was quoted in a June 24 Associated Press article that compared public reactions to the Greek shipwreck that killed at least 80 people and the loss of the Titan submersible in search of the Titanic.

The public’s sustained attention on the Titan resulted from the fact that no communication with it was possible and that a positive outcome seemed possible, Talarico, who studies how memories are created, said in the article.
