Talks, Debates & Lectures taking place at Conway Hall

February 2019

Julia Ebner shows how far right and Islamist extremists have succeeded in penetrating each other’s echo chambers as a result of their mutually useful messages.

The corporate world is watching us, but why does no one watch them? Peter Bloom reveals pervasive monitoring practices which mask how at its heart, the elite remains socially and ethically out of control.

Using data from twenty years of conversations including first dates, crisis negotiation, sales encounters and medical communication, social psychologist Elizabeth Stokoe will change the way you think about talk, and explain the big pay-offs to understanding conversation scientifically.

How to understand the deviance that lies in ourselves and others? Drawing together science, psychology and philosophy, Dr Julia Shaw presents an original and rigorous exploration of the darkest recesses of the human mind.

The new neuroscience that shatters the myth of the female brain. This is not feminist science – it’s just science. Professor Gina Rippon, author of The Gendered Brain, shows us the reality behind much of the data that is used to justify the gender gap, and explains how major breakthroughs in neuroscience will help us dispel these stereotypes and ‘neurotrash’.
