The Social Psychology of Cockroaches

Todd Freeberg, professor in the UT Department of Psychology, will present “The Social Psychology of Cockroaches” Friday, November 8.

Although cockroaches are viewed as pest species by many of us, many cockroach species are highly social and behaviorally complex. Professor Freeberg will describe some recent work on cockroaches that reveals how sensitive their behavior is to the size and nature of their social group.

The UT Science Forum takes place Fridays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A. Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, visit our website at
