Social Psychology and Politics

Course Level 2: Intermediate

Estimated Study Time: 8-10 hours

Why are social psychologists interested in politics, and how can they help us understand things like social movements, protest and activism? This course moves away from a state-centric study of politics and, using insights from social psychology, explores the role of identity, personality and culture for political action. The course introduces a critical perspective considering how psychologists themselves can be activists and interrogating the norms of ‘good citizenship’ in Western societies.
