Stephen David Reicher PhD, Wardlaw Professor, School of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of St. Andrews received the British Psychological Society's Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Psychology for his work on the BBC Prison Study. He is a former Chief Editor of the British Journal of Social Psychology, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and a Fellow of the Academy for Social Science.
Professor Reicher's research focuses on issues of group behaviour and the individual-social relationship. His recent research can be grouped into three areas. The first is an attempt to develop a model of crowd action that accounts for both social determination and social change. The second concerns the construction of social categories through language and action. The third concerns political rhetoric and mass mobilisation - especially around the issue of national identity. Currently, he is starting work on a Leverhulme funded projec looking at the impact of devolution on Scottish identity and social action in Scotland.
