Social and Cultural Cognition (SCC)

Our research covers various areas in social psychology to understand social and cultural cognition and its underpinnings at both individual and societal levels.

The SCC Group

The SCC group forms part of the Department of Psychology. We aim to understand how people perceive and process information about others and their social world, both on an individual level and on a broader group, societal, and cross-cultural level.



SCC Topics

We examine social cognition topics including immanent justice reasoning, lay theories and beliefs about society and human nature, creativity and openness, and cognitive underpinnings of social attitudes and behaviours.
