Course content: Political psychology is a booming interdisciplinary research field that integrates knowledge from psychology and political science to advance our understanding of political behavior and the psychological mechanisms that shape it. Political psychology draws on insights from diverse fields such as neuroscience, personality, intergroup relations, social psychology, evolutionary psychology, developmental psychology and cognitive psychology. This PhD course provides an introduction to political psychology.

The course provides an overview of central theoretical and methodological approaches that have established the foundations of the field. The course also presents recent cutting-edge developments. The course will be structured in four blocks. The first block provides a general introduction to the field of political psychology and the intellectual foundation of the field. In the second block, we will focus on how insights from social psychology on social identities and research on heuristics can advance our understanding of political preferences and partisan polarization in modern democracies. The third block focuses on how insights from evolutionary psychology, biology, and personality psychology shape public opinion formation on issues such as immigration, social welfare policies and trust in political candidates. Finally, the fourth block will focus on the emerging field of the political psychology of mitigation of climate change. We will discuss how insights from political psychology can help advance more climate friendly behavior and policies and explain why effective mass mobilization on climate change mitigation is often difficult.
Lernziele How we will work: The blocks will combine very short lectures and seminar discussions as well as small group discussions of the readings. The aim of the lectures will be to provide an overview of the subject matters and place assigned readings in a broader research context. The aim of the seminar discussions will be in-dept discussion and analysis of key readings and the questions they raise for future research.

Required preparations: Participants are expected to read the assigned readings for each session prior to the course. Participants are expected to be able to take active part in seminar discussions and group discussion of these readings. A total approximately 4-6 journal articles (approximately 80-120 pages in total) will be assigned for the course.
