Social psychologist Dr Mark Rubin looks at the way in which individuals act in groups, and the way those groups interact in society, in order to understand the motivations behind choices and action.

Mark’s research focuses on the social psychological processes that underpin social identity, stereotyping, prejudice, and social exclusion. He has authored over 50 major research publications in this area.

“I began by looking at broader issues such as stereotyping and prejudice, like why are people racist, why are they prejudiced,” Mark explains.

“More recently, I have been looking at social psychology in education, at social class differences in higher education, as well as applying social psychology to risk taking and urban planning.”

His research in areas such as intergroup contact, social exclusion, migration, and stereotyping have provided insight on the cognitive and motivational factors influencing the choices of many Australians.

CATEGORISING DIFFERENCE

Mark’s work on prejudice has identified cognitive and motivational factors that predict bias. He explains that one of the triggers for prejudice can be low self-esteem.

“When people say they don’t like a member of another group, it makes them feel that their own group is better, and this makes them feel good about themselves,” he says.

An extension of this work is looking at stereotyping, or why people from one group see members of their group as heterogeneous, while also seeing members of another group as all the same.

Mark has a specific interest in prejudice against migrants. Interestingly, he does not believe this prejudice comes from not liking a person because of their country of origin, but instead may be a reflection of a more base instinct in humans to ease anxiety by creating order through keeping everything in neat categories.

“People have a need for categories to be neat and orderly with everything in its right place. If things get untidy and categories are mixed up because, for example, people are migrating from one country to another, then it can create anxiety in some people, which can be expressed in prejudice,” he explains.

SOCIAL INTEGRATION AT UNI

Mark, who has generated a great body of work looking at social class differences in higher education, speculates that location, the availability of enabling courses and perceptions on the part of working-class students dictate the choice of where to study. But his research is more focused on what happens when working-class students get to university.

Despite the support put in place by institutions such as the UON to redress class-generated inequities, working-class students may still struggle to integrate.

“We find that these students often don't feel like they ‘fit in’, which is problematic for a number of reasons,” Mark says.

“Having friends at university helps, because they’ll tell you when the deadline is, teach you what you may have missed, or be a shoulder to cry on when you don’t do so well.”

Mark and a professional doctorate student have found that parenting style acts as a mediator variable between social class and social integration at university. Students who self-reported being smacked and disciplined harshly were less likely to integrate at university than those who reported their parents being less authoritarian.

“Perhaps students who are disciplined harshly do not develop the interpersonal skills that allow you to mix in with other people as well, skills that facilitate social integration at university,” Mark speculates.

CLASS DIFFERENCES IN HEALTH

Together with his current postgraduate students, Mark is exploring the relationship between social class and mental and physical health.

“Usually you find there is a positive relationship between social class and mental health. The higher your social class, the better your mental and physical health,” Mark explains.

Mark’s students are investigating social class differences in social integration and even sleep patterns as potential explanations for these mental and physical health differences.

MINING INFORMATION

Mark has recently commenced a major project with UON colleagues Dr Anna Giacomini and Professor Brian Kelly on risk taking by Australian miners. Surveying more than 1,000 open-cut and underground miners from Queensland and New South Wales will hopefully shed light on factors that predict conscious and unconscious risk taking at work.

The second phase of the project will involve the design and implementation of interventions aimed at preventing workplace injury.

Another applied project Mark is working on, with Dr Tessa Morrison from the School of Architecture and Built Environment, is looking at people’s evaluation of cities. Data is being collected from Newcastle, Sydney, Paris and Istanbul to inform future urban planning.

GUIDED LEARNING

Mark completed his undergraduate degree in psychology at Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK. A Masters degree in social psychology from the London School of Economics followed. Accepting a position as a research assistant at the University of Wales in Cardiff ultimately resulted in a scholarship to complete his PhD under eminent social psychology scholar Professor Miles Hewstone.

Mark came to the University of Newcastle in 2001 and immersed himself in campus life, undertaking many extra duties within his faculty and others, from International Student Liaison Officer through to Student Academic Conduct Officer.

His passion for enabling students to succeed and work hard has won him several teaching awards.

He has prepared and posted several online student guides on how to do everything from critically analysing an academic paper to making a research poster. Mark is constantly receiving positive feedback about his student guides.

“People swear by them. They always send me nice emails saying thank you for this, you’ve been a big help, which is really great,” he says, smiling.

Career Summary

Biography

A/Prof Mark Rubin is a social psychologist in the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle. The 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia assessment rated the School’s research as “above world standard” in the area of “psychology and cognitive science” and “well above world standard” in the specific area of “cognitive science.” The University is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world and in the top 13 of universities in Australia (QS World University Rankings, 2017-18; Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017-18).

RESEARCH

Mark’s research focuses on the social psychological processes that underpin social identity, stereotyping, prejudice, and social exclusion. He has authored over 70 major research publications in this area. Half of his journal articles are published in journals that are ranked in the top quartile of their field based on the SCImago Journal Rank indicator. His work has been cited over 3,500 times, he has an h index of 18, and he is ranked in the top 10% of social psychologists based on his publication impact (career-stage e-index compared with 611 North American social psychologists; Nosek et al., 2010).

Mark’s work in the area of social identity includes several highly-cited articles that defend social identity theory against its critics and call for more sophisticated tests of its hypotheses. In the area of stereotyping, he has identified new processes that explain why people perceive members of social groups to be “all the same.” His work on prejudice has identified cognitive and motivational factors that predict bias against “category-inconsistent” people such as migrants and counterstereotypical individuals. Working with Stefania Paolini, he has also shown that negative intergroup contact is a more powerful predictor of out-group attitudes than positive intergroup contact. Finally, in the area of social exclusion, he has identified personality, motivational, and resource-related variables that predict social integration and exclusion, including migrant integration and the exclusion of working-class students from social life at university.

TEACHING

Mark has won several awards for his teaching, including the University of Newcastle Faculty of Science and Information Technology’s (2014) Academic Staff Excellence Award, the Australian Government’s Office for Teaching and Learning (2013) Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, and the University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor’s (2011) Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. Based on undergraduate feedback surveys, students regard Mark as a knowledgeable and well-prepared teacher who explains things clearly and who provides well-structured course and lecture material.

Mark has been the principal supervisor of four PhD student completions and 62 final-year undergraduate student research project completions. He has also co-supervised one professional doctorate student and two Masters students to completion. He is currently the principal supervisor of three PhD students and a Masters student and the co-supervisor of three PhD students.

© 2017 Scandinavian Psychological Associations and John Wiley & Sons Ltd Owuamalam, Weerabangsa, Karunagharan and Rubin found that Malaysians associate people in low status groups with anger more than their higher status counterparts: the hunchback heuristic. But is this belief accurate? Here, we propose the alternative possibility that members of low-status groups might deliberately suppress anger to counter this stigma, while members of high-status groups might disinhibit their anger to assert their superiority. To test these propositions, we manipulated undergraduate students¿ relative group status by leading them to believe that provocative comments about their undergraduate social identity came from a professor (low-status condition) or a junior foundation year student (high-status condition). Using eye-tracking, we then measured their gaze durations on the comments, which we used as a physiological signal of anger: dwelling (Experiment 1). Results revealed that dwelling was significantly greater in the high-status condition than in the low-status condition. Experiment 2 conceptually replicated this pattern using a self-report method and found that the suppression-disinhibition effect occurred only when reputational concerns were strong.

© 2017 American Psychological Association. Several researchers have recently argued that p values lose their meaning in exploratory analyses due to an unknown inflation of the alpha level (e.g., Nosek & Lakens, 2014; Wagenmakers, 2016). For this argument to be tenable, the familywise error rate must be defined in relation to the number of hypotheses that are tested in the same study or article. Under this conceptualization, the familywise error rate is usually unknowable in exploratory analyses because it is usually unclear how many hypotheses have been tested on a spontaneous basis and then omitted from the final research report. In the present article, I argue that it is inappropriate to conceptualize the familywise error rate in relation to the number of hypotheses that are tested. Instead, it is more appropriate to conceptualize familywise error in relation to the number of different tests that are conducted on the same null hypothesis in the same study. Under this conceptualization, alpha-level adjustments in exploratory analyses are (a) less necessary and (b) objectively verifiable. As a result, p values do not lose their meaning in exploratory analyses.

© 2016 John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd, Asian Association of Social Psychology and Beijing Normal University On what basis do people form their social identities? To investigate this issue, the present research investigates cross-cultural differences in self-stereotyping, a key outcome of social identification. In particular, the research tests the hypothesis that ingroup ties are a stronger predictor of self-stereotyping among people from individualist cultures than among people from collectivist cultures. In Study 1, university students (N = 117) completed measures of ingroup ties and self-stereotyping with respect to an intimacy group (family and friends). Consistent with predictions, ingroup ties significantly predicted self-stereotyping among individualists but not among collectivists. Study 2 (N = 104) found a similar pattern of results among members of the global internet community who considered either an intimacy group (their friends), a task group (their work group) or a social category (their gender). These results indicate that people in individualist cultures are more likely than those in collectivist cultures to base their social identities on ingroup ties. The implications of these results are discussed in relation to self-categorization theory's depersonalization account of social identification.

© Cambridge University Press and Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management 2015. Drawing from fields such as marketing psychology, strategy, social psychology, and organizational behavior, the present examination explores the individual and organizational bases for personal reputation; specifically, how different bases interact with one another to produce an individual's reputation within organizations. It is proposed that individuals use personal reputations to satisfy their need for positive self-esteem as well as to secure their sense of belonging in organizations. Furthermore, reputation allows individuals to obtain rewards such as autonomy, power, and career success and the opportunity to signal key information to audiences. Likewise, organizations utilize personal reputations to predict their members' behaviors, market those who are a part of the organization to others, build their own corporate reputations, and signal information to consumers and competitors. To further this understanding of personal reputation an examination is presented as to how organizations serve as an essential context within which individuals realize their personal reputations and regulate their behavior.

Distinctions are made between global and specific, personal and social, and trait and state self-esteem, and these are used to structure a review of over 40 studies concerning social identity theory's hypothesis that (a) intergroup discrimination elevates self-esteem and (b) low self-esteem motivates discrimination. It is observed that researchers have tended to employ measures of global personal trait self-esteem in their investigations of this self-esteem hypothesis, and it is argued that measures of specific social state self-esteem are more consistent with social identity theory's assumptions. Although no convincing evidence is found for the self-esteem hypothesis in its full and unqualified form, it is argued that this is due to a lack of specificity in its formulation and it is suggested that a more qualified and specific version of the hypothesis may be more appropriate.

Social Class Differences in Higher Education 2012 - 2018

Around 25% of the Australian population are from working-class and low socioeconomic status backgrounds, but only 16% attend Australia's universities. In response to this inequity, the Australian Government aims to increase the percentage of these students in the higher education sector nationwide.

However, improving access to university represents only half the battle. We also need to ensure that our new intake of working-class and low SES students perform well at university and don't drop out part way through their studies. The University of Newcastle is well-placed to investigate the experiences of this group of students because it already has a relatively high percentage of low SES enrolments (27%). Dr Rubin is involved in research that investigates the performance and experiences of these students at university, including their social integration, mental health, physical health, academic performance, and persistence in their degree.

This line of research is consistent with the University’s focus on achieving parity of retention and success among students of all SES backgrounds (New Futures Strategic Plan 2016-2025), and it is part of a range of activities undertaken by the University’s Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education.
