Prof. Livingstone’s research focuses on the Psychology of Media, including children, media and the internet. Talking with Paul Stenner, she discusses the importance of these topics for social psychology. She explains why, in her view, internet access is now an essential part of society’s infrastructure, and young people’s relationship with the internet is not as negative as it is often depicted to be.

Prof. Livingstone’s research interests align closely with the Culture and Social Psychology (CuSP) research strand in the School.
