DD317 Advancing social psychology

< Back to Event

Social psychology investigates people as social beings, looking at the interrelationships between psychological issues and particular situations and contexts. DD317 uses social psychology to explore important social and political issues that concern people in the UK today. What is the impact of globalisation on modern cultures? How does immigration affect identities? How do citizens engage in new political movements and other forms of political action? How can we explain new gender identities? How have the huge recent changes in work and employment impacted on the identities and life courses of contemporary workers? The module looks at how social psychologists address these questions and some of the new developments in social psychology theory and research, including interdisciplinary research.

The field of social psychology is very broad so we suggest in the module that there are actually many different social psychologies. In this session David, Paul and Stephanie talk about some of these.

Further information on the module can be found here.
