Parapsychology and Psychology Online Conference: An Addition to the Schedule

Hi Folks:

Next weekend is the online conference Parapsychology and Psychology: Research and Theory. We are delighted to say that Dr. Jim Carpenter, long-time clinical psychologist and parapsychology researcher will be giving a presentation based on his ground-breaking book, First Sight, on Sunday, November 2nd at 3pm Eastern. We moved the Reminder about the Poster Session Materials and Closing Discussion back to 5pm Eastern on Sunday to accommodate Jim’s talk.

Welcome to Parapsychology Online: Our New Conference is Coming Up November 1st & 2nd!

Welcome to Parapsychology Online, the blogsite that supports our YouTube Channel, Parapsychology Online, and our Facebook Page Parapsychology Online.

We’ve just finalized the live presentation schedule for our first online conference on parapsychology. We have Dr. Renaud Evrard from the University of Strasbourg, Dr. Alejandro Parra from the Institute for Paranormal Psychology in Buenos Aires, Dr. Patrizio Tressoldi from the University of Padova in Italy, Dr. Chris Roe from Northampton University in England, and Dr. Christine Simmonds-Moore from the University of West Georgia in the USA. Dr. Carlos S. Alvarado is also giving a presentation, and we have a prestigious list of Poster Presentation Contributors as well (more on that tomorrow!). Click on the Conference Schedule button above for more information. Dr. Nancy L. Zingrone (me) is organizing the conference along with Alvarado.

The conference is being dedicated to Dr. Gertrude Schmeidler, a 20th-century psychologist who worked for many years on the relationship of what seemed to be psychic phenomena and abilities to known perceptual states, personality traits and other psychological phenomena. Her biography is available here, and the Poster Presentations will include a stand-alone PowerPoint on her life and work.
