Inequality, deprivation and behaviour: A theoretical and practical exploration

Nombre de places: 20 - Langue: Anglais

Objectifs

This PSL-week will examine the impacts of inequality, poverty and deprivation on well-being and on behaviour. It will contain lectures on the theoretical background from several disciplines (psychology, sociology, public health), but there will be a strong focus on group practical work. We will consider how to do research on this topic, as much as learning about the results of previous. Students will complete a ‘mini-project’ in small groups, during which they will devise a question and a simple method, and gather some rapid data. They will present their work in a final group presentation, which can take any format they desire.

Evaluation

Each student will need to demonstrably contribute to the mini-project and its presentation. The presentation must have a durable form, such as a video, poster, website, blog or essay.

Programme

The course will run for four hours per day from Monday to Friday. The first two days will lay out the background and the options for mini-projects. Wednesday and Thursday will be devoted to the mini-projects themselves, and Friday to group presentations.
