HTC Colloquium Series

The Historical, Theoretical, & Critical (HTC) Studies of Psychology program at York University presents a colloquium series featuring prominent historians and theorists of psychology, and critical psychologists. Talks are usually held monthly over the academic year. Attendees include faculty and students of the Historical, Theoretical, & Critical Studies of Psychology program along with others who have an interest in the history and development of psychology, and in its critical application. Speakers are recruited mostly from the York HTC community, but also include invited guests from all over North America. Some of our recent guests have included Neelam Kumar of the National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies in New Delhi (2012), critical psychologist Ian Parker from the University of Leicester (2014), and Jeffrey Yen from Guelph University (2016).
