Graduate Talk Series

The Graduate Talk Series (GTS) developed out of an enthusiastic graduate student response to foster academic engagement and intellectual community among the graduate students and between the graduate students and faculty. To that end, we have put together a forum for graduate students, run by graduate students, where we can present our research to the rest of the grad students and the larger academic community.

Full details of speakers can be found on the Graduate Talk Series page.

Special Series on The Science of Human Diversity

In the special series of invited lectures, we will explore the psychological science of human diversity, spanning questions including the nature of human diversity, attitudes toward it, reasons for lack of diversity in the workplace, and how diversity affects creativity and the scientific process. Over three academic years (Fall 2016 to Spring 2019) the series will feature nine talks from world famous experts on diversity science, who approach the question from the perspective of social psychology, organizational behavior, child development, and human decision making. This series will investigate case studies including gender, sexual orientation, political ideology, race, and religion, and how we can study the nature and impact of diversity in each case from a scientific perspective.
