New research projects funded, and new blogs…

We are delighted that our ongoing research on behaviour change has been funded by the ESRC, with 2 new projects beginning this Autumn.

The first is a Transforming Social Science award held by Mark Whitehead at Aberystwyth University. The project, ‘Negotiating Neuroliberalism’ is an examination of the internationalisation of the ‘behaviour change agenda’ in public policy which potentially re-shapes neoliberal social policies according to insights in the neurosciences and advanced in psychological techniques of governing.

The second is an ESRC Seminar Series on Behaviour Change and Psychological Governance, which is 6 seminars and a postgraduate summer school in which participants will discuss how our cultural ideas about the brain, mind, behaviour and self are changing.
