This week on RadioActive Dr. Holly Angelique, a professor of Community Psychology and Social Change from Penn State Harrisburg called into the studio to talk about her work.
When we talk “social change” we have many different lenses through which we can think, analyze and act. Holly outlined some of her work on social power, hegemony and other “five dollar words” to begin a dialogue on how we are thinking about the work we do for social change. We discussed how a Feminist Community Psychology lens can help to support social change work in our communities and the field of Community Psychology. We cut right to the chase and began to peel back the layers of social power we face in our work and in our communities and turned our critique onto our own work. In this episode Holly really helps us engage in a dialogue outlining ways we can understand and question the dominant cultural hegemony of academia, Community Psychology and social power in our everyday lives.
