Professor Carolyn KaganProfessor of Community Social Psychology

I work on participative community projects in partnership with local people. I am particularly interested in finding creative ways to evaluate community projects and to facilitate change in human services. I work on projects in the community, with disabled people and their families and services, and with people living in poverty. Much of my work is action oriented, with projects extending over several years, and I have been involved with the establishment of new forms of community organisation. I collaborate closely with colleagues working in Latin America and Australia, and sit on the steering groups of a number of community projects. Most recently my work has involved researching arts for health initiatives, HE-community engagement, urban regeneration and the development of intergenerational practice.
