Abstract and Keywords

This essay reviews a new generation of social psychological constructs emergent in the volume, attending to critical psychological formulations fomenting at the transnational and transdisciplinary borders of these essays; the introduction of challenging constructs and insights/incites that derive from studying current social struggles in contentious contexts, and the shifting subjectivities of everyday people, animated in times of rising inequality, popular protest, virulent white nationalisms and xenophobia, and fragile solidarities emergent across social movements. The essay considers the theoretical formulations and methodological moves that characterize the current moment in a social psychology of injustice, reflecting on ways to chronicle at once the imprint of structural violence, the cacophony of subjectivities, and the emergence of radical possibilities. It calls for critical psychology to align with movements for justice, amplify voices unheard, and honor counternarratives in times of voracious dispossession, State violence and populist uprisings on the Left and the Right.

Keywords: dispossession, participation, justice of recognition, aesthetic psychology, counter narratives, fugitive spaces, critical participatory action research
