Abstract

We report and analyse a survey of UK critical psychologists conducted early in 2011. Our analysis constructed
four themes from the data: positivity/optimism, negativity/pessimism, academic practice and institutional
matters. First we sketch the current state of critical psychology in the UK. The themes are then described, and
their meanings situated and interpreted with respect to a series of tensions related to method, theory,
incoherence and marginalisation, and affects.

Keywordsneoliberalism; thematic analysis; affect
