Maps and directions to the LSE.

Part of the series on Post-Brexit Politics: A Social Psychological Interrogation of Community and Citizenship.

 

 

The third seminar will discuss the future of social psychology and the social sciences more broadly, and set the ground for international and interdisciplinary collaborations in the era of Brexit.

Previous work in the social psychology of politics has explored lay representations and practices of citizenship, lived subjectivities and everyday politics, and new identities and forms of self-governance, among others. The third seminar in the series will build on this work and on the discussions of the first two seminars in order to discuss the future of the social psychological study of community and citizenship in the context of the emergent politics of Brexit.

The seminar will also discuss how international collaborations, among psychologists and social scientists more generally, can be maintained and nurtured in a post-Brexit context.

More details on the series can be found on the main Post-Brexit Politics page.

The seminar is free and open to all, but registration (see link below) is required for attendance.
