UC Berkeley Institute of Personality and Social Research

Oral History Project

To preserve a record of IPSR's vibrant past, we have started an oral history project in which members of IPAR and IPSR are interviewed about their lives and work, with special attention given to their experiences at IPAR and IPSR. We hope you will enjoy watching these interviews and welcome suggestions for other people to include in this series.

In addition to the IPSR interviews, we are including several other interviews that IPSR Director Bob Levenson conducted for the Association for Psychological Science (APS) as part of their "Inside the Psychologist's Studio" series.
