£8 / £6 concession

Why do we think and do evil? What can science teach us about why humans do bad things? And what do our reactions to deviance teach us about ourselves?
Drawing together science, psychology and philosophy, Dr Julia Shaw unlocks the intricacies of the world of criminal psychology and shines a search light into the darker corners of the human psyche, illuminating a modern science of evil.
As a scientist in the Department of Psychology at University College London, Julia’s academic work, teaching and role as an expert witness have focused on different ways of understanding criminal behaviour. 
Her work has been featured in outlets such as CNN, the BBC, The New Yorker, WIRED, Forbes, The Guardian and Der Spiegel.
