The ARC has announced the award of an Australian Laureate Fellowship (ALF) to Alex Haslam from the University of Exeter. This is absolutely wonderful news for social psychology in Australia.
We have had previous awards of eminent (and intensely competitive) professorial fellowships in social psychology to Joe Forgas, Mike Hogg and the late John Turner. The Australian Laureate Fellowship is the next level up (and as high as you can go in Australia). This is an extraordinary achievement.
I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to Alex and to the University of Queensland as the host institution.
— Professor Craig McGarty
