This year the annual conference of the Association for Dutch Social Psychology conveniently took place right outside my doorstep, at the University of Amsterdam. An intimate gathering where a cross-section of Dutch social psychologists shares its latest research.
I presented my work on the psychological underpinnings of national attachment; a somewhat older project, cast in a new light by connecting it to the symposium's theme of "Looking for Prejudice Where it Doesn’t Belong."
Melissa Vink, my former graduate student who is currently pursuing a PhD at Utrecht University, presented her thesis research "On Being Different: Effective and Inclusive Diversity Policies for Both Majority and Minority Group Members." One of her first presentations and already impressing the crowd!
