We are currently running a virtual book club and seminar series aimed at PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty associated with the behavioural work in Geary and Stirling. If you would like to be included and haven't already been emailed, please let me know. Due to technology constraints, spaces are very limited so will not at present be able to make them more widely available though if you are a loyal reader working in this space and want to be involved let me know by email and we can try to accommodate. For students interested in this and related topics, see details of our MSc in Behavioural Science which is currently taking applications.
