Social Speakers

Throughout the year, the Social Area has weekly brown bag research presentations at its SPRIG (Social Psychology Research Interest Group) meetings, which take place every Friday afternoon. In addition, each year we bring in several prominent off-campus speakers to present their research at SPRIG and also at departmental colloquia. In recent years, these speakers have included people such as Kathleen Vohs, John Cacioppo, Claude Steele, Russ Fazio, Rich Petty, Tanya Chartrand, Keith Maddox, Mary Murphy, Jenn Richeson, and others.
