Kevin Carriere, M.P.P., Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Degrees: Ph.D. Psychology and Master's of Public Policy, Georgetown University; B.A. Psychology, Clark University

Kevin R. Carriere is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology. He teaches courses in introductory psychology, cultural psychology, political psychology & public policy, and an advanced lab in social psychology. He runs the PACT (Politics, Activism, Culture, & Threat) Group, investigating why we react to feelings of threat in various ways – from limiting speech to rallying a crowd. Undergraduates should get in touch with him if they are interested in pursuing research opportunities with the Group.

His most recent edited book, “Imagining Collective Futures: Perspectives from Social, Political, and Cultural Psychology” examines how groups imagine new futures for themselves – from Ireland protests on privatization of water to how fan activists of Harry Potter seek to make change one page at a time.
