Free event 'Weird psychology: The science of strange phenomena'

16 April 2017

Explore the world of spooky psychological phenomena with Chris French and Roger Newport at the second of our British Psychological Society Annual Conference 2017 public engagement events.

As part of our 2017 Annual Conference we are holding a free public event on Friday 5 May 2017, inviting you to learn more about the science behind some of the spookiest psychological phenomena.

Psychologists Chris French and Roger Newport will host the evening, taking attendees on a whistle-stop tour of strange sights, weird beliefs and missing body parts.

There will also be the opportunity to talk to researchers and find out more about current psychological work that is being undertaken at the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex.

The event is being held at the Huxley 300 Lecture Theatre at the University of Brighton, BN2 4GJ from 6:30pm to 9pm. Attendance is free but you must register your place online.

This will be our second public event of the week, with BPS President Professor Peter Kinderman also giving a free lecture, entitled 'Our turbulent minds: Everybody's crazy but nobody's ill!', on Tuesday 2 May. Further details on this event can be found here.
