  • Professor Elizabeth Valentine (Royal Holloway, University of London) 
  • Dr Katherine Hubbard (University of Surrey) 
  • Dr Nick Midgley (Anna Freud Centre) 
  • Professor Jan Burns (Canterbury Christ Church University) 
  • Professor Dame Vicki Bruce (Newcastle University)
  • Interview with Susie Orbach (psychotherapist and writer)

There will also be panel discussion and the launch of Senate House Library’s travelling exhibition ‘Pioneer Women Psychologists at the University of London’.

The registration fee of £15 includes welcome refreshments and a light buffet lunch.
