The psychology of social change and intergroup relations
Dr. Hema Preya Selvanathan (Lecturer at the University of Queensland)
Throughout history and in many regions around the world, people have engaged in collective action and participated in social movements to demand social change. My research aims to understand group processes around mobilisation for and against social change. In this talk, I will present an overview of research conducted in diverse contexts, including the Black Lives Matter and Alt-Right movements in the United States, the Bersih electoral reform movement in Malaysia, and the Invasion Day protests in Australia. I will also discuss a new line of research on the various ways individuals and groups may engage in social change behaviours beyond collective action and social movements.
