Head Space, Physical Place and Social Transformation.

1 March 2016, 12:30 - 14:00

Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building

Dr Michelle Ellefson (Psychology and Education)
Dr Tatiana Thieme (Human Geography)
Dr Ben Crewe  (Criminology)




This seminar will consider how we create ‘spaces’ of physical, social  and cognitive transformation. What are the contexts where transformations might be embedded? How might physical, social and cogntive spaces related to each other? Tatiana Thieme (Human Geography) will consider the role of human spaces, especially urban ones where there is a high level of poverty. Michelle Ellefson (Education, Cognitive Psychology) will consider the role of specific aspects of cognition, especially those where the environment impacts their cognitive and neuro-cognitive development. Ben Crewe (Criminology) will consider the role of the physical, psychological and social with reference to his research on how people cope with the impacts of long-term imprisonment.



Open to all.  No registration required.
