The Division of Psychology in the School of Social Sciences holds a regular weekly seminar series over the academic year to invite excellent internal and external speakers to present their research findings. This is an integral part of our research culture in the Division which stimulates psychological thinking and debate, and informs about current developments in the various subfields of Psychology.

Staff and students from Psychology and the wider University are welcome to attend; Seminars are 4 pm – 5 pm on Wednesdays and will be held in Chaucer 1803 (Lecture Theatre 4) on the City site unless otherwise stated.

Summary

In the Psychology Seminar Series this week Dr Andrew Holliman (Coventry University) will be talking about "Exploring the relationship between prosodic sensitivity and early reading development".

The talk will examine whether sensitivity to speech prosody (the rhythmic patterning of speech) is related to literacy development. Details of a study will be presented in which pre-readers were assessed on their prosodic sensitivity and then assessed on their literacy skills one year later. The relative importance of prosodic sensitivity in models of literacy development will be discussed.

Booking information

Staff and students from Psychology and the wider University are welcome to attend.

Should you be external to the University and wish to listen to one of our speakers, please inform the Research Seminars Coordinator Dr Duncan Guest via email prior to the event you wish to attend.
