General Research Seminars

The Department of Psychology hosts a research seminar series in which we invite academics from other institutions to visit us and share their research. These seminars typically run on lunchtimes on the first Wednesday of the month and are open to all.

If you’re a student, member of staff or even a visitor to Edge Hill, you are very welcome to attend. All we ask is that you confirm your attendance to any given seminar with our Admin Team at PsychologyAdmin@edgehill.ac.uk prior to the event.
