The psychology of superheroes

Dr Yvonne Skipper (Lecturer in Psychology)
Why are superheroes so popular? With more than 90 films and a wealth of comics, superhero stories have become an important genre. They provide a space for children and adults to reflect on issues in our society, such as ethical dilemmas and prejudice. In this talk I will discuss how superhero stories can help us understand ourselves, others and our society by discussing the psychology of fear prejudice and why we help (or do not help) others.

How creative are young children?

Dr Sarah Rose (Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Child Development)
@DrSarahERose
Defining creativity is difficult and makes research tricky but fascinating! My particular interest is the development of creativity in young children. In this talk I will present several ways that psychologists attempt to measure creativity, including convergent (i.e. problem solving) and divergent (i.e. coming up with original and creative ideas) thinking. I will present psychological evidence of the development of creativity in young children using these measures. This will include some new evidence examining the influence of education and technology use on creative development.
