SAVE THE DATES for the 10th annual Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series!

Join us for our 10th annual lecture series that will bring notable experts to the University of Washington to co-present with faculty from the UW Department of Psychology. This public lecture series is made possible by a generous endowment by Professor Allen L. Edwards, who was affiliated with the University of Washington Psychology Department from his arrival in 1944 as an Associate Professor to his death in 1994. 

This year's series will explore The Psychological Science of Inequity & Inequality. Our three featured UW faculty include: Anthony Greenwald (Feb. 18), Shannon Dorsey (Feb. 25), and Kristina Olson (Mar. 4). Together, they will discuss the latest research on the core factors that shape intrinsic biases toward underrepresented and non-majority individuals, especially within the public domain such as in education, the courtroom, and in mental health care.

Online registration will open in January of 2015 at We hope to see you there!
