I suppose that I should be all right with TMA05. It’s on a topic I’ve studied before (Tajfel and Turner’s theories of intergroup conflict) not only from the perspective of psychology, but when I did the OU’s “Effective Manager” course way back in 1990. The criticism (from Billig) is a discursive psychological one, which is the perspective I chose to use for my project.
All things being equal, that doesn’t seem like too bad an assignment.
But all things aren’t equal. This is DD307 we’re talking about, after all. Sigh.
I’d really like to get it out of the way before I go on holiday, as then I won’t have to take my laptop with me, just my Jobsian Fondleslab. So having read through the three chapters in block 5 on group processes already, I’m going to see if I can’t get this essay sorted over the next few evenings. That way, I can use the time on my holiday to make notes on all of the chapters I’ve read but haven’t done so far (that’s four I think) while I’m sat by the pool, sipping a Keo beer or two.
That feels like motivation enough …
