Stories of Psychology: War and Its Legacy

Wednesday 8th October 2014 at University of London

This event is now fully subscribed

The fourth annual history of psychology symposium

Convened by Dr Alan Collins (Lancaster University)

Please Click Here for the Event Programme

This year's symposium is part of the British Psychological Society's planned series of events to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The First World War came at a time when psychology was still only beginning to emerge as an academic discipline and psychological organisations were in their infancy, particularly in Britain. After the War things started to look very different very quickly. So what impact did the War have on the development of psychological ideas and practice? Our speakers will attempt to provide some answers.

This is a public event and all are welcome. The programme has been designed to have general appeal as well as academic validity for historians of psychology.

Cost (including lunch): £15 Registration essential

This event is supported by Senate House Library, home of the British Psychological Society's library collection.
