Live music, original film, dancing, drama and psychological research: This is no ordinary Jury Duty! tutor2u are delighted to promote this exciting Psychology Event, taking place on Thursday 9th, Friday 10th, and Saturday 11th February, from 7 - 10pm, at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Event: The Accused: The Psychology of a Murder Trial

FULL DESCRIPTION: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Join the Goldsmiths Forensic Psychology Unit for a trip back to the 1950s, and explore a turning-point in British legal history. This immersive science-theatre event combines the best creative and research talent Goldsmiths has to offer - with a healthy dose of 50s nostalgia!

Based on transcripts and court records of a high-profile 1950s murder trial, The Accused: The Psychology of a Murder Trial invites you to play the role of juror as we present a dramatisation of the crime, the case, and the testimony presented in court. Throughout the event, let the live music, drama, and dancing - devised, choreographed and performed by Goldsmiths students - immerse you in the sounds and style of the 1950s.

The event also includes two large-scale psychological research experiments, on which the researchers in the Forensic Psychology Unit will feed back results both throughout the night, and to all attendees after the event. It promises to be an entertaining and informative night, blending the arts and science.

Brought to you by Goldsmiths' award winning* Forensic Psychology Unit in collaboration with the Acting & Filmmaking Society and the Musical Theatre Society.

Please note that the event includes two psychological experiments and all attendees will be asked to give their informed consent to participate and complete a short questionnaire online before the event. This should take no more than five minutes and is NOT mandatory (but we can't use your data or feedback your results on the night if we don't get your consent). You have the right to withdraw your data at any time.
