About the Authors
  • A social representations approach offers an empirical utility for addressing myriad social concerns such as social order, ecological sustainability, national identity, racism, religious communities, the public understanding of science, health and social marketing. The core aspects of social representations theory have been debated over many years and some still remain widely misunderstood. This Handbook provides an overview of these core aspects and brings together theoretical strands and developments in the theory, some of which have become pillars in the social sciences in their own right. Academics and students in the social sciences working with concepts and methods such as social identity, discursive psychology, positioning theory, semiotics, attitudes, risk perception and social values will find this an invaluable resource.

    • A comprehensive overview of social representations theory including its numerous developments over the years
    • Addresses contemporary social-psychological concerns alongside other relevant theoretical approaches in the social sciences
    • Provides the conceptual tools required for undertaking applied research into social-psychological issues

    "This Handbook provides an excellent overview of the "state of the art" in social representations theory, and showcases an impressive range of recent theoretical and empirical work. It will be an essential resource for scholars wanting to pursue a genuinely social form of social psychology."
    Nicola Morant, University of Cambridge
