Saturday 26 October: 12:30pm - 2:00pm

Anglia Ruskin University, Science Centre - SCI105, East Road, CB1 1PT

Social psychologists from ARU discuss changes in psychology across times, places and contexts focusing on phenomena such as gendered advertising, homoprejudice cross-culturally, injustice and mental health.

Dr Magdalena Zawisza-Riley (panel chair) discusses evolution of gender issues in advertising based on her new book ‘Advertising, Gender and Society’ in the context of recent changes to advertising regulations in the UK.

Dr Daragh McDermott explores how prejudice towards sexual and gender minorities has changed globally since the advent of the civil rights movement of the 1960’s through to the present day.

Dr Annelie Harvey analyses how people react to instances of injustice (e.g. victims) and how such reactions change under different circumstances and across time.

Dr Mick Finlay discusses how the Victorians understood intellectual disabilities, criminality and mental health conditions, and how these fitted with other belief systems of the time.

Dr Lewis Goodings considers how modern technology and social media sites such as ‘Elefriends’ can be harvested to better mental health today.
