June News RoundUp

Connection and Pride were the themes of the month, as we continue to rebuild local relationships post-pandemic and celebrate our academic staff and postgraduate research students exploring LGBTQIA+ themes at Canterbury Pride.

Our students and staff

  • We asked Dawn Chai, Psychology with a Placement Year student about her student experiences at Kent as a final year Psychology student. Read here.
  • Dr Amir-Hamayoun Javadi is a pioneer in the field of cognitive and neuropsychology, publishing multiple articles that further advance the field of music and memory interventions. In this blog, Amir shares his experiences as a researcher and lecturer at Kent.
  • Psychology alumna Rebecca Pfaff tells us why she came to Kent, her favourite memories and how her degree in Psychology prepared her for her career as an assistant psychologist. Read here.

Celebrating Pride

  • Kent is proud to be a partner of Pride Canterbury each year, celebrating the diversity of our varied communities of human sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. So we’re especially proud to be represented by PhD student Kirsty Gravestock who will be presenting her recent work around attitudes and behaviours towards LGBTQ+ individuals. More information.

How do we all live well together?

  • Dr Lindsey Cameron explains her role as Researcher in Residence at The Linking Network, and how YOU can get involved in Schools Linking Celebration week! Find out here.
  • We reconnected; our Community Day is a way of encouraging a two-way discussion between the local community and the researcher being conducted at the school. Read all here.
