An inaugural lecture is a significant milestone in an academic career, recognising and celebrating promotion to Professor. This lecture provides an opportunity for the Professor to showcase their research to a broad audience including colleagues across the University, alumni of the School, family and friends, and the wider public.
The School of Psychology is proud that a number of our colleagues have progressed to Professor in recent years and so in 2022-23 we put together this Programme of Inaugural Lectures, recordings of which we present here. We hope you find something of interest.
