Weekly seminar for the LSE community

Recent topics of discussion include:

  • The future of work

About the seminar series

The Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at LSE hosts a term-time seminar series, inviting researchers to present their latest findings.

The series is particularly beneficial for LSE students and early career researchers as it presents the opportunity to discuss and debate new findings in social psychology and behavioural science in a small, open setting.

How to join a seminar

The Departmental Seminar Series is open to all LSE staff and students. 

Seminars will normally take place on Wednesdays at 12-1pm during term time. This year the series will take place in a hybrid format - both in-person and online - unless specified.

All details, including speaker information, title and abstract, location and Zoom link will be sent via email each week from the PBS Events team Please refer to this email for any changes to schedule and confirmation on the format. If you are a member of LSE staff or a student from outside the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science, please email to join the mailing list.
