TCAS – Exploring the Psychology of Arbitration

TCAS presents Dr. Julia Shaw, psychological scientist, University College, London.

We rely on our memories every day of our lives. They make us who we are. But they are far from being the accurate record of the past we like to think they are. In her bestselling book The Memory of Illusion: Remembering, Forgetting and the Science of False Memory, Dr. Shaw drew on the latest research to show why our memories so often play tricks on us – and how, if we understand their fallibility, we can actually improve their accuracy. Dr. Shaw has also published Evil: the science behind humanity’s dark side and based on this, in 2020 she launched the award-winning BBC podcast Bad People, co-hosted by Sofie Hagen. She is currently working on her fourth book, on the psychology of environmental crime. Dr. Shaw’s full bio can be found on her website Dr. Shaw’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

This session will be free to all TCAS members.
