There is a question on one of my final papers which is really confusing me. The more i re-read it the more of a muddle I'm finding myself in.

With regards to crowd psychology I need to discuss how a concept is active, and how that 'activity' is taken into account when conceiving and constructing research inquiry...

I understand what active concepts are; situated in time and place, always changing (Active) etc. etc. but I cannot decide on a concrete concept to explain it with regards to crowd psychology...

What concepts would you pull from crowd psychology to describe this?

Hi, I think we may be studying the same thing. I'm doing my EMA for OU.

My take on it (which could be wrong) is like yours, an active concept changes and isn't fixed/static. In crowd psychology, I've looked at the Magh Mela as a concept. It changes/has changed from the pre-existing work Hopkins has done on crowds. It differs in that the researchers (using deductive logic of inquiry) reconsider the concept of 'effervescence,' the crowd has a positive impact on individuals and identity as opposed to a negative one. Problem I'm having is, there's only 300 words to 'explain' it...are we supposed to critique it? I'm unsure, there doesn't seem much room to allow for it with the word count.

Sorry, this probably hasn't helped at all but thought I'd air my musings on this.

Best of luck

Dani
