A future divided?

Auditorium • Attenborough Centre

Organised by:
  • British Science Association
  • Suitable for: 16+

    Nobody is born with prejudices, but from an early age, children express preferences for members of their gender and nationality, hinting at the divisions that plague mature society. Harriet Over will discuss her research on the psychological origins of prejudice and reflect on how this work can help us design research-led interventions to reduce the prevalence of this social problem.

    Harriet Over is the winner of the British Science Association’s Margaret Mead Award Lecture for social sciences. This event is supported by Coast to Capital.

    Event booking has closed for 2017. We hope you enjoyed the Festival. Join us next year!
