Dr Louise Chambers
Module Convenor: Communication, Psychology, Experience (Year 2)
I also supervise BA dissertations and share the teaching on the Embodiment & Experience module, which is a joint BA Year 3 and MA option (convenor: Professor Lisa Blackman).
I joined the department in 1997, working as a part-time VT and researching my Ph.D. I completed the PhD in 2004, and was fortunate enough to be able to continue teaching at Goldsmiths, where I finally gained a ‘fractional’ post in 2013.
My research interests focus primarily on the complex relations between psychology, individuals and the mass media – particularly in relation to concepts like gender, sexual orientation, disability and race. I am also interested in how particular kinds of bodies are produced and normalised through different institutional practices. My original degree was in psychology, which I studied at Warwick; I have an MA in ‘Critical Social Psychology’, which I gained at Lancaster.
Outside the college, I am a member of an LGBT History research group. I also have a small number of podcasts, based primarily on research at the National Archives at Kew, London; these can be accessed at:
