Crowds and Identities: John Drury’s Research Group


Current and recent projects

Our research interests include:

  • Collective action participation as a source of psychological transformation, including politicisation, empowerment, and wellbeing
  • Collective resilience in mass emergencies and disasters
  • Cognitive, behavioural, and emotional reactions to situations of crowding
  • The practical and political implications of pathologizing (versus liberatory) discursive constructions of crowds
