In this lecture, Dr. Suzanne Stewart will tell the story of how Psychology’s current research renaissance has grown from the “replication crisis” – from the experiments on predicting the future to the politicians’ favourite power stance to the outright fraudsters to the triumph of America’s favourite cookbook over questionable research. It will also illustrate how transparent and robust “Open Science” practices can lead to renewed credibility of research – and suggest ways in which audience members can expand their own scientific literacy to better evaluate the research they consume. 

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.
