About Author

  1. Michael Billig is Professor of Social Sciences at Loughborough University Working in contemporary social psychology, he trained in Bristol with Henri Tajfel as an experimental psychologist and helped design the so called minimal group experiments which were foundational to the social identity approach He moved away from experimental work to considering issues of power, political extremism and ideology in a series of important books His Social Psychology and Intergroup Relations 1976 offered a trenchant critique of orthodox approaches to prejudice in psychology Fascists 1979 helped reveal the classic fascist and anti semitic ideology underlying the UK s National Front at a time when it was bidding for political legitimacy and electoral success In the 1980s his focus shifted to everyday thinking and the relationship between ideology and common sense This strand of work is shown in the collectively written work Ideological Dilemmas 1988 with Condor, Edwards, Gane, Middleton and Radley , Banal Nationalism, and in his major study of ideology and the UK royal family, Talking of the Royal Family 1998, 2nd Edition.His influence runs across the social sciences and he has been one of the key figures highlighting and reinvigorating the use of classic rhetorical thinking in the context of social issues For example, he shows that attitudes are best understood not as individual positions on topics, but as emergent in contexts where there is a potential argument This perspective is introduced in his book Arguing and Thinking 2nd Edition, 1996 and has been the basis for innovative approaches to topics as diverse as psychoanalysis, humour and nationalism It is also an important element to discursive psychology.Billig is Professor of Social Sciences at Loughborough University where he has worked since 1985 He is a member of the internationally influential Discourse and Rhetoric Group, working with figures such as Derek Edwards and Jonathan Potter.
