Equalab (at Goldsmiths, University of London) is a group committed to conducting and disseminating excellent research on the social psychology of intergroup relations. It contains a diverse array of researchers at many different stages of their careers – from first-year undergraduates to full-time members of staff. Some academic staff outside of Goldsmiths have also joined as associate members or advisors. The topics covered by Equalab members are varied and include friendship, dating, representation, violence, immigration, and art; they are held together by their primary focus on group-based identity and understanding human behaviour through an intergroup lens.
‘Being part of Equalab has given me access to ongoing research by working with undergraduates and PhD students whose expertise is within Social Psychology. Mainly, this collaboration gave me the opportunity to learn as well as strengthen new skills, which I found particularly helpful for my personal and professional development.’ – Giulia Bonadei, Psychology student at Goldsmiths, University of London (2017).
