The Latin word colloquium means conversation

colloquiumlargeA series of intriguing talks and scientific inspiration.
Annually the Department of Psychology hosts a Colloquium Series throughout the academic year. This exciting program brings us together outside of the classroom to have conversations with our faculty and students and the speakers we’ve invited to our campus to share their ideas.

In our Fall 2014 series, the UBC community had the chance to hear from international speakers on a wide range of topics. These topics covered affect contagion, emotion form and function, and social ties and health. And our very own Prof. Janet Werker presented on the biological constraints and experiential influences in becoming a native listener.

Thank you to everyone that attended these talks and joined in the conversation. If you missed them, these intriguing talks were captured and can still be seen. Visit the Department of Psychology’s website to see the presentations and to hear the audio. Be sure to mark your calendars as 2015 will bring an equally exciting colloquium series.

Hope to see you there!
