About Dr Glen Jankowski
Glen is a Senior Lecturer in Critical and Social Psychology. His research interests include curriculum diversification, body image and anti-racism.
Glen completed his PhD at Leeds Beckett University in September 2015. It empirically argued that the recent rise in men's body image concerns was related to changes in commercial priorities rather than any individual factors.
Glen currently teaches on the following BSc and MSc Psychology modules:
- Introducing Psychology (Year 1)
- Psychology of the Appearance (Year 2)
- Instituitional Racism (Year 2)
- Final Year Research Project (Year 3)
- Working and Living in the Social World (MSc)
- MSc Research Project (MSc)
Glen's research interests largely align with Critical Psychology. This aims to challenge injustice including psychology's individualization of societal problems. Specifically, his research interests include documenting the societal determinants of widespread body dissatisfaction, challenging psychology's androcentric and Global Northern bias and more broadly anti-racism.
