Submission of extended abstracts (up to 500 words): July 31, 2017

The Journal of Community & Applied Social Psychology is inviting papers for a special issue on ‘Brexit and emergent politics’. The special issue focuses on the theme of ‘emergence’. It considers how social psychology can contribute to an understanding of the political ruptures associated with Brexit, and also what challenges Brexit poses to social psychology; in other words, to what extent are our conceptual and methodological tools appropriate to capture these new and emerging realities?

We invite papers addressing the following broad topics in the context of Brexit:

  • Political identities
  • Construction of political categories, such as left/right, nationalism/internationalism, authoritarianism/libertarianism, and their applicability in the current political climate
  • Political movements and political mobilisation
  • Political leadership
  • Ideology and the emergence of new ideological formations
  • Role of affect in political subjectivities
  • Citizenship

Papers based on original research studies as well as conceptual and methodological papers are welcome. Interdisciplinary papers that extend beyond social, political and community psychology are also encouraged under this call.
