PSYC 225 - Research on Intergroup Conflict and Cooperation
This course involves students in ongoing research addressing the relations between members of different ethnic, national, religious, and racial groups. Most of these research projects focus on the role of past conflict and group-based victimization on current intergroup relations. Both destructive phenomena (such as hostility and revenge) and constructive phenomena (solidarity, reconciliation, and prosocial behavior across groups) will be studied. This course is grounded in social psychological literature and theories, and students will be exposed to multiple methods (ranging from content analysis of interviews to surveys and quasi-experimental studies).
