Social Psychology Seminar

4:00pm Friday, 29th May 2009

Professor Di Bretherton from the University of Melbourne will deliver a social psychology seminar titled:

What does 'sorry' mean?

In the seminar we will present out current collaborative research project. Before Kevin Rudd's apology we interviewed a small sample of Indigenous people to try to gain their ideas about what form an apology should take, who it should come from and what difference it would make. After the apology we are following up on this study to ask what the apology now means to a sample of Indigenous people. Our research will also address some questions about reconciliation to a national sample of Australians. This is research in progress and so we will be discussing the methodology rather presenting results at this point. We see our research as one example of a peace psychology project and will seek to highlight features of our approach are seminal to the conduct of peace research.

Hope to see you there!
