Social Psychology. Wits Psychology department PDF Print E-mail

28 September 2007 

Wits School of Human and Community DevelopmentWits’s Psychology department offers a course module in Social Psychology that is focused on intergroup relations – the behaviour of groups towards each other.

Social Psychology a discipline which aims at an integration of the psychological functioning of individuals with the social settings, small and large, in which this functioning takes place.  It looks at individual behaviour as it interacts with its social context, and as it, more often than not, derives from that context. 

Most of human action is social interaction.  Much is created by social interaction which shapes and modifies even those of our activities which often appear to us as individually determined.

August 2007 

OutRhodesOutRhodes is a society at the Rhodes University which celebrates the sexual orientation of all students, with specific focus on the issues of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-gendered students.

They provide an environment which is comfortable, supportive and fun for all students, whether if they are coming OUT or just want to have a great time. OutRhodes is also determined to educate those students who are prejudiced against homosexuals, bisexuals and trans-gendered people.

During their annual Pride week on campus Gender DynamiX was asked to give a presentation as part of their program. It was well attended and people showed great interest in the discussion. I had also the chance to meet with three of the local trans-women of Grahamstown.

This way they know where to direct people with these issues when confronted with them. I showed one of my films to try and appeal to them on a more personal level too. Several people approached me for more info after the event ” said Hamblin.
