Psychology Today Blog: Making Sense of Collective Violence and Oppression

Starting this month, I will blog for Psychology Today about topics related to the social psychology of collective violence and oppression, mostly from the perspective of those who are targeted based on their group membership. You can follow the blog here. The first blog post, sparked by the U.S. House recognition of the Armenian Genocide, is titled “Acknowledging Collective Victimization” and can be found here. I welcome suggestions for topics you would find interesting to read about on this blog. 

New article published: Through the lens of history: The effects of beliefs about historical victimization on responses to refugees

In this article, led by Zsolt Szabo from ELTE University in Hungary and now published in the International Journal of Intercultural Relations, we examine the relationship between perceptions of historical suffering of Hungarians (in general, and specifically in the 1956 refugee crisis) and attitudes towards refugees coming to Hungary today. The abstract of the article is available here
