Date: Monday September 28, room 308
Speaker: Dr. Tingting Ji (School of Psychology, Nanjing Normal University)
Title: Intergroup Bias: An Evolutionary Threat Management Approach
Researchers have proposed that intergroup prejudice is partially caused by behavioral immune system mechanisms. In this colloquium, Dr. Tingting Ji will propose a novel hypothesis that how attitudes toward outgroups, such as immigrants, from a violent ecology versus a pathogen-rich ecology are differentially moderated by immigrant sex. This colloquium will also describe a program of research that examines the role of behavioral immune system in human behavior. Faculty and students who are interested in this colloquium are welcome to attend.
