Speakers Series

The Psychology Speakers Series is sponsored by the Psychology and Neuroscience Department, Psi Chi, and the J. William and Katherine C. Asher Endowed Research Fund.

We plan to host two speakers each semester, and they come to the DePauw campus from a variety of sub-fields of psychology, both inside and outside academia.  Most of the academic speakers come from nearby universities and colleges, such as Purdue, Indiana, IUPUI, and Wabash.

By attending various presentations, students have opportunities to see how research is conducted in psychology and to see the diversity of psychology, and faculty have the opportunity to be exposed to cutting-edge research. The speaker series helps to provide additional research opportunities for our students, has shown faculty members at other universities the type of work we do here which has built much needed connections with psychology departments at other institutions, and provides faculty members from other departments and people from the Greencastle community opportunities to hear about current psychological research. All speaker series events are free and open to the public.

Below are the planned speakers for the 2017-2018 academic year:
