Dr Andrew Livingstone
Senior Lecturer in Social Psychology


Research interests

My research interests centre on social identity, emotion, group processes and intergroup relations. Specific topics include:

  • Collective action and social change
  • The relationship between emotion and social identity
  • The strategic characterisation of �conflict� by group members
  • The role of social identity processes in alcohol consumption
  • Crowd psychology
  • The role of social identity content and norms in intergroup relations.

I am also involved in research on bullying as an intergroup behaviour, and gender bias in sports refereeing.
