Volume 1 Issue 6: Hope
In the 6th and final(!) Issue of Volume 1 of The Operative Word (#TheOW), Dr Andrea LaMarre calls for optimism amongst critical health psychologists - even as we continue to put our scholarship where our politics are, and dismantle power structures. Providing a meaningful and thought-provoking bookend to our first volume, she challenges us to think about how to balance deconstruction with reconstruction.
Volume 1 Issue 5: Psychology's-Eugenics
In the 5th Issue of The Operative Word (#TheOW), Dr Glen Jankowski poses a challenge to the discipline of psychology, to consider the ways in which discrimination and racism continue to be perpetuated in the ways we practice and conduct research. He argues for a focus on the effects of such discrimination for the health and wellbeing of people from BME (Black Minoritised Ethnic) groups. You can also visit his and his colleagues’ website: https://bmepsychology.com/ for more information and resources.
Volume 1 Issue 4: Embodied Neoliberalism
In this Issue of The Operative Word (#TheOW), Professor Antonia Lyons (@antoniacl) recounts some of the key points about the keynote address she delivered at the last ISCHP conference. Informed by her research programme on young adults' drinking cultures, we ask her to reflect on a broad range of issues including gender, social media identity curation, marginalised groups, and neoliberalism.
