A History of Insight into Brain and Mind: Festschrift for Prof Nick Wade

On Friday 29th January 2010, the School of Psychology at the University of Dundee will hold a day of talks in celebration of Prof Nick Wade's contribution to Psychology throughout his prestigious career. Professor Wade's contributions have spanned the divides between Psychology, Art and the History of Science. The day of talks at Dundee will bring together leading scholars in these fields from around the world to discuss these interfaces. This unique setting will offer an opportunity for open discussion across traditional research disciplines. 


The event will be free of charge, with lunch and refreshments supplied courtesy of the organisers and the School of Psychology at the University of Dundee. With the proximity of the Festschrift to Burns' night we will also make sure that there is a plentiful supply of whisky, water, oatcakes, bannocks and shortbread in the seminar room throughout the day. The University of Dundee is pleased to invite you and all those with an interest in Vision, Cognition, Brain and Mind to this exciting event. Please feel free to circulate this invitation to all those you may feel would have an interest.
