≪Organizer Abstract≫
Prejudice remains one of our most pertinent social challenges. As such, psychologists continue to accrue considerable knowledge about prejudice in relation to its development and potential psychological and neurological mechanisms. More recently, growing interest has also been given to prejudice in relation to its evolution and potential function/s. Yet despite the potential contribution that each of these perspectives offer to each other (and to the study of prejudice as a whole), their simultaneous consideration and integration remain poorly attempted. As advocated by the Nobel winning ethologist Nikolaas Tinbergen, these perspectives are complimentary rather than competing explanations. With this in mind, speakers at this symposium will engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue by describing their own specialist research and how it may subsequently inform the past and future findings from other perspectives.
