Sluckin lectures

The Sluckin Lecture is an annual event at the University of Leicester to commemorate Professor Wladyslaw Sluckin (1919–1985), one of the original members of the University of Leicester’s Department of Psychology and Head of Department from 1973 until his retirement in 1984. He was Editor of the British Journal of Psychology from 1967 to 1973. He had a lasting influence on generations of students and colleagues and remains an inspiration to the School of Psychology and to British psychology in general.

The first Sluckin Lecture was delivered in 1991 by Professor Patrick Bateson, FRS, of King’s College, Cambridge.
