June Talk on Peace Psychology

The next Psychology Cultures Seminar is scheduled for 15th June 2.30-4.30 at the University of Leicester (Ken Edward’s building, Lecture Theatre 3). After the success of Nimisha Patel’s talk on the role psychologists might take in conflict situations, we thought it would be fitting to close the year with a session considering how psychologists might promote peace.

Dr Ron Roberts is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Kingston University. He has published numerous articles and has authored various books, most recently ‘Psychology and capitalism’ (http://www.zero-books.net/books/psychology-capitalism) and ‘The new politics of experience and the bitter herbs’ (http://www.pccs-books.co.uk/products/new-politics/).  Ron also edited the 2007 book ‘Just war’ (http://www.pccs-books.co.uk/products/just-war-psychology-and-terrorism/) in which, amongst other contributions, he co-authored a chapter on peace psychology. Ron will draw on material from this book and his continued involvement in promoting peace in Bosnia to support us in thinking how clinical psychology might become more active in preventing conflict.

Places remain free and open to all. Please email Carl Gudgeon on cmg16@le.ac.uk to book a place.
