Professor Sonia Livingstone (OBE, and Professor of Social Psychology at LSE) discusses her work on the Psychology of Media with Professor Paul Stenner (Co-Director of the Open Psychology Research Centre at the Open University). Giving a rare glimpse of her personal journey into researching media psychology, Sonia Livingstone explains her motivations for studying how young people use social media, and shares some of her insights into the dilemmas we all face in today's mediatised world. Anticipating the launch of the Open Psychology Research Centre, they also touch upon what it might mean for psychology to be an open field, sensitive to the futures of young people.
