Behavioural Humanities: Professor Daniel Read "The Behavioural Science of Middlemarch"

Facilitated by Professor Thomas Hills.

Coventry native George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) wrote one of the greatest novels in English: Middlemarch: A study of provincial life. In this talk, Professor Daniel Read will discuss Middlemarch in the light of modern behavioural science by examining its insights into human behaviour. I will discuss the themes of behavioural ethics, strategic interaction, and impatience and also deliberate on the broader question of how the study of literature can inform thinking about psychology and society.

Guest Speaker: Dr René Mõttus “Why care about truly predictive research, besides descriptive and explanatory (personality) research?”
Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for TEAMS link

Dr René Mõttus, from Edinburgh University, will be speaking on

Why care about truly predictive research, besides descriptive and explanatory (personality) research?

Host: Professor Anu Realo

Abstract: The talk will be based on a recent paper that distinguishes between three main kinds of personality research: description, prediction and explanation (psyarxiv.com/hvk5p). The paper proposes some not-necessarily-intuitive ideas regarding the different aims and methodologies of these research kinds, and explains the tensions between them. In the talk, I will argue that explanatory research may be over-rated and has under-delivered, whereas descriptive research, while often under-appreciated, has been a triumph with yet more to come. Most importantly, I will argue that predictive research is often confused with other research kinds and under-trained, but may hold the greatest growth potential once we adopt a data-driven approach and machine learning principles, and forego the expectation that predictive models be theoretically intuitive and / or descriptively elegant. The talk is mostly about personality research, but the ideas apply to other psychology fields as well.

BIOGRAPHY: Rene is a Reader of Individual Differences in the University of Edinburgh and currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Personality. The team recently started Personality Psychology Podcast. Publications are at http://tiny.cc/a0dwtz.

PGR Research Day
TEAMS

PGR Research Day - Friday 21 May

This event is an opportunity for psychology postgraduates to present their research to an audience of fellow students and academic staff. The purpose of the day is to provide a friendly and supportive environment for practising presentation skills (talks and/or posters), learn about the research being carried out by other students, and gain feedback and recommendations from people in the department.

We invite abstracts (up to 250 words), including title, for talks and posters for the Postgraduate Research Day. The deadline for abstracts is Monday 26th April (5pm). Please note that as part of their course requirements, Clinical Psychology Doctorate students should choose to give either a talk or a poster. MSc Psychological Research students are also invited to present at this event.

Please submit your abstract and your title online: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/psych/pgresearch/researchday/ 


Talks

Research students are encouraged to give a 10-15 minute talk, followed by 5-10 minutes of discussion (20 minutes total). The content of the talks can be tailored so that it reflects the current stage of your research

We cannot guarantee that you will get to present a talk (it mostly depends on numbers and scheduling) but we will do our best to make sure everyone gets the most out of the day.


Posters

Your poster should be presented two ways: (1) as a downloadable image (e.g. as a PDF) and (2) as a short (5 min) video/voiceover where you talk through your poster and work.

 

Deadline for talk and poster abstracts: 26th April, 5pm

Deadline for poster submissions: 14th May, 5pm 

We look forward to hearing from you, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

All the best,

Janelle Kolas and Arij Yehya
