Psychosocial Thinking in Times of Covid-19 – APS Summer Programme 2020

Like everyone else, APS members are working under altered and potentially isolating circumstances and it was with great regret that the we had to postpone our 2020 conference on The Psychosocial Body that was scheduled for the beginning of June.

However we believe that psychosocial thinking is needed more than ever in these times and we have therefore devised a free online programme which will start with a monthly reading group and a panel from the conference. Other events are currently in the planning stage. Please click here for more information and registration links. Members will continue to receive copies of the Journal of Psychosocial Studies as a further benefit of subscription to the Association.

We are a newly established learned society, bringing together researchers, teachers, practitioners and students from different fields who are interested in contributing to the development of this exciting inter/trans-disciplinary field of study.

We organise regular conferences, seminars and workshops that explore a wide range of psychosocial phenomena and perspectives. We seek to promote the field of Psychosocial Studies and to challenge the often rigid disciplinary distinctions that characterise the social sciences and the humanities in contemporary university settings and beyond.
