Upcoming Talks by the Social/Personality Faculty Candidates

The psychology department is excited to welcome three excellent candidates for the open social/personality faculty position. The upcoming dates and times of these candidates’ talks on their work is as follows:

1/11/18 (Thursday) at 3:00 PM in the EMU Gumwood Room (245)

Sarah Ward (University of Missouri), If it Feels Wrong, it is Wrong: How Trusting One’s Intuition Shapes Moral Judgments and Moral Behavior

Talk Abstract: It is widely believed that people use intuitive processing to inform their moral judgments. However, people differ in their tendency to trust or ignore their intuitions. In this talk, I demonstrate that people with a higher reliance on intuition are especially likely to condemn moral transgressions and are more prone to behave morally.

1/17/18 (Wednesday) at 3:00 PM in EMU Redwood Auditorium (214)

Jennifer Kubota (University of Chicago), TBD

1/22/18 (Monday) at 3:00 PM in EMU Crater Lake North (146)
