Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS) Online Reading Group

Study Group Convenor: Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS) / Journal of Psychosocial Studies

Please join us for our monthly online reading groups where we will be coming together and discussing topical articles drawn from the Journal of Psychosocial Studies.

Like everyone, APS members are working under very altered and potentially isolating circumstances and it was with great regret that we had to postpone our 2020 conference on The Psychosocial Body at 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 (watch this space!).

These reading groups are free to attend and open to all. You will need to register via the Eventbrite link. All registered attendees will be sent a link to join a Zoom call before the event.

The first in the series will be a discussion of Barry Richards’ “Beyond the angers of populism: a psychosocial inquiry” The article is available on the journal’s website under ‘5 most read papers,’ and can be found here. Association for Psychosocial Studies members also have it in their free copies of the 1st edition of the relaunched journal.
