Professor Wolfgang Wagner
Linz University

"I have had the opportunity to lecture at LSE's Department of Social Psychology several times during the last 15 years.

Each visit was not only a very enjoyable event but the Departments intellectual atmosphere and sometimes heated discussions with colleagues and students also contributed to my own academic thinking and led to successful joint research.

I don't want to miss any of my memories and cherish the friendship with many LSE colleagues that evolved over time."
