Thirteen Years of Weird Science at Goldsmiths

22 November 2013, 11:00am - 12:00pm
CSIRO Discovery Centre

Ever since records began, in every known society, a substantial proportion of the population has reported unusual experiences many of which we would today label as 'paranormal'.

Opinion polls show that the majority of the general public accepts that paranormal phenomena do occur.

Such widespread experience of, and belief in, the paranormal can only mean one of two things: either the paranormal is real, in which case this should be accepted by the wider scientific community which currently rejects such claims, or else belief in and experience of ostensibly paranormal phenomena can be fully explained in terms of other psychological and physical factors.

Opinion polls show that the majority of the general public accepts that paranormal phenomena do occur.

Anomalistic psychology may be defined as the study of extraordinary phenomena of behaviour and experience, often aiming to provide non-paranormal explanations of such phenomena in terms of known psychological and physical factors.

The Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit is based at Goldsmiths, University of London, and is part of the Department of Psychology.

The research unit was established by Professor Chris French in 2000 to provide a focus for research activity in the area of Anomalistic Psychology.

In this presentation, Professor French will provide an overview of the 13 years of weird science at Goldsmiths.

This event is presented by CSIRO Discovery, in association with the Australian Skeptics National Convention 2013.

    This will be really easy for me, since I'm working at the Christian Lab, just up the hill from the Discovery center.
