Mauro Sarrica, Dottore di Ricerca in Psicologia Sociale e della Personalità.

I miei studi si concentrano principalmente sui processi di interpretazione e co-costruzione della realtà in situazioni di cambiamento. Ambiti di ricerca principali:

- Rappresentazioni sociali

- Sostenibilità energetica

- Peace psychology

- ICT4D

 

Responsabile nazionale Progetto FIRB – Futuro in ricerca 2010: “ACCESI - Analisi socio-costruttivista delle comunità per l’energia sostenibile italiane”. Ho approfondito le rappresentazioni sociali dell'energia, esaminando discorsi politici, stampa e posizionamento dei cittadini in Italia a fronte della transizione energetica, e in seguito all'emergere di conflitti ambientali.

In prospettiva costruttivista ho approfondito lo studio delle rappresentazioni sociali di pace, guerra e conflitto. Sviluppi recenti riguardano i crimini di guerra commessi dagli italiani nel periodo coloniale.
 
Nell'ambito delle ICTs, ho preso parte a persi progetti di ricerca internazionali ed interdisciplinari su Internet e le tecnologie della comunicazione. In questi ambiti ho studiato le rappresentazioni sociali delle ICTs, l'impatto di Internet sulle pratiche di giornalismo, l'uso dei forum online al fine di motivare e coordinare l'azione collettiva.
Nell'ambito delle ICT for Development, sono attualmente coinvolto in progetti su slum tourism e sull'introduzione degli smartphone in comunità rurali in Bangladesh.

Tra le competenze metodologiche ho approfondito i software per analisi qualitative e quantitative di dati testuali.

Membro di associazioni scientifiche quali EASP, IAPS e AIP.

Mauro Sarrica, Ph.D in Personality and Social Psychology.

My research is mainly focused  on lay interpretation and co-construction of social reality, facing changes and novelties.

Scientific coordinator of 'FIRB – Futuro in ricerca 2010' “ACCESI - Socio-constructivist analysis of sustainable energy communities in Italy”.  I conducted research on social representations of energy, energy transition, and environmental conflicts.

In peace psychology, I examined the social representations of peace, war and conflict. Recent research examined communication of war crimes committed by italians during colonialism
 
In the field of ICTs, I've been involved in several international and interdisciplinary researches on Internet and Communication Technologies. In these fields I studied the social representations of ICTs, the impact of Internet on journalist's practices, the use of online forum to motivate and coordinate collective actions.
In the ICT for development field, I'm currently involved in research on slum tourism and on the use of smartphons in rural Bangladesh.

My methodological skills include the use of software for the qualitative and quantitative analyses of textual data.

I'm  member of EASP, IAPS and AIP scientific associations.
