Morality and Intergroup Conflict

Term: Fall 2011

Subject Code: GPSY

Course Number: 6335

This course will examine the way morality shapes the trajectory of intergroup conflict. Many aspects of intergroup conflict - like war or genocide - can be seen as signs of moral failure. However, it may also be true that much intergroup conflict is driven by moral reasoning. This course will focus on insights from social psychology and other disciplines into moral judgment and discuss implications for understanding intergroup conflict.
