Dr Gerard Duveen [1951-2008]

"The LSE has been a leading centre for social psychology for a good many years during which time it has earned an international reputation for the innovative ways in which it has developed social psychological perspectives for understanding significant social issues.

As a researcher and teacher, the lectures, seminars and workshops I have given and attended at the department have been amongst the most intellectually fruitful engagements I have experienced.

What is most distinctive about the department is the extraordinary sense of  collaboration which it sustains, something which extends across interactions with both the faculty and the students. That same sense of collaboration has also been evident in the annual conference organised jointly by graduate students from the LSE and from Cambridge which have been amongst the most successful of their kind."
