Social & Organisational Research
Social and Organisational Research consists of staff and students engaged in research and teaching in the areas of social psychology, critical social psychology, discursive psychology, and organisational psychology.
There is also a strong emphasis on applied research engaging with social and organisational issues. A discussion group associated with this unit - the Discourse and Social Psychology Group (DASP) – attracts members from throughout the University of Adelaide. DASP functions to sustain a culture of critical inquiry into contemporary social ideas within the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide.
