The specialist group seeks to engage and shape the parameters of debate about citizenship and identity in general, and, in particular, issues relating to Britishness and other national and minority identities across the UK, the commonwealth and beyond.

The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”


Convenors can view the SG Handbook here.
