RC42 Social Psychology (host committee)

Language: English

This session has three main goals. First, to provide a comprehensive overview of different sociological social psychological lens in the study of inequality (e.g., emotions, status structures, legitimacy and so on). Second, to unveil the shared and unique features of inequality processes across social spheres (e.g., education, economy, politics and health). Third, to highlight the ways through which societal and global inequalities affect individuals' attitudes and behavior. Having these topics in mind, the session will eventually highlight and further our understanding of the unique contributions of social psychology in examining inequalities as a major sociological concern.
