"Bill Roll Lecture" at University of West Georgia, Carrollton, GA.

In honor of the late Dr. Bill Roll and his contributions to parapsychological research, the University of West Georgia Psychology Department annually hosts “The Bill Roll Lecture”, which is presented by a current researcher in the field of parapsychology. This year’s lecture "Bill Roll's Use of Native American Concepts to Explain Parapsychological Experiences" will be given by Dr. Stanley Krippner, who is an eminent psychologist who has undertaken work in consciousness studies, parapsychology and transpersonal psychology. Dr. Krippner has written extensively on altered states of consciousness, dream telepathy, hypnosis, shamanism, dissociation, and parapsychological subjects. Earlier in his career he conducted experiments with Montague Ullman, MD, into the possibility of dream telepathy at the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Dr. Krippner was an early leader in Division 32 of the American Psychological Association [APA], the division concerned with humanistic psychology, serving as President of the division from 1980 - 1981. He also served as president of division 30, the Society for Psychological Hypnosis, and is a Fellow of four APA divisions. In 2013, Krippner received the American PsychoIogical Association Award for Distinguished Lifetime Contributions to Humanistic Psychology. The Bill Roll lecture will take place at 7pm on Thursday 23rd October at the University of West Georgia. Prior to the event, there will be a reception in the psychology building at the University of West Georgia (Melson hall) from 6pm. All are welcome to attend this free event.
