The Social Identity Lab, directed by Dr. Michael Hogg and managed by Samantha Gardner, is a center for social psychological research on group processes, intergroup relations, and the self-concept. Research is guided by a focus on social identity processes, and on the conceptual development and societal application of our understanding of these processes.
Our research has a broad focus on:
- influence processes, including leadership, within and between groups;
- the motivational role played by self-uncertainty in group behavior, intergroup relations and self-conception;
- the structure of self-conception and identity in group and intergroup contexts
