In the field of social psychology, we work on research projects dealing with subjective experience and action in the context of social, institutional, discursive and socio-economic contexts. A special focus is on social inequality: stabilization and production of social inequality, psychological effects of social inequality, resistance and consciousness formation, etc.
It is particularly important to us that research and teaching are closely linked and that students are involved in teaching research projects and research internships. In most of our research projects it is possible to write Bachelor’s or Master’s theses or to participate in the form of a research internship (see below).
