Public Lectures and Seminars

A Social Identity Approach to Health

Continuing our 50th Anniversary seminar series featuring pre-eminent psychologists. Orla Muldoon is founding Chair of Psychology, University of Limerick.

Social Identity Matters: A Social Identity Approach to Health. Orla Muldoon joined University of Limerick in 2007 to lead the development of the Department of Psychology there. Her overarching research interests concern the impact of group memberships on social behaviours, for example, how perceiving one-self as a member of a religious, socio-economic or racial group can impact on views of the self and others. She is interested in how these group memberships are transmitted to and understood by children and young people and in how such memberships impact on physical and mental health. As issues of power and (dis)empowerment are central to experiences of racial, national and gender groups, her research often uses a political psychological approach to consider the manner in which social practices are recreated for the purposes of particular political projects.
