The Schwartzman Lecture

The annual Schwartzman lecture is one of our most treasured events at the Centre for Research in Human Development. It is named after Alex E. Schwartzman, who was a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at Concordia University. Each year, we invite a leading expert in the field of human development to give a one-hour lecture followed by a networking lunch and event. The lecture takes place on the first day of our annual conference, where scholars and trainees from different disciplines convene to share their latest research and insights. We invite you to join us for this intellectually stimulating event. Find a list of our past lectures below.
