Event description
Bristol Conversations in Education research seminar: Children’s social and moral judgements within intergroup contexts

About this Event

This event is part of the School of Education's Bristol Conversations in Education research seminar series. These seminars are free and open to the public.

Hosted by the Centre for Psychological Approaches for Studying Education (PASE)

Speaker: Professor Adam Rutland, Professor of Psychology, University of Exeter

From an early age, we are surrounded by other social beings and a complex social environment. Children have to navigate this increasingly diverse social world, which is a significant developmental achievement. By studying how and when children begin to make sense of and master social contexts we can learn about the nature of social cognition and inform educational strategies. This talk will focus on when and how children and adolescents understand and judge intergroup contexts in which social identities and intergroup relations are salient. In a progressively more diverse social world, with increased migration and globalization, children are more and more experiencing others from different social groups. They have to make difficult social and moral judgements in these intergroup contexts about who to share with, help, include or exclude and how to define themselves. These judgements have important implications since groups of children that experience sustained social rejection are known to develop social and psychological problems (e.g., mental health issues, school drop-out).      

In this talk I will present recent research I have conducted with colleagues into how children, with age, increasingly judge and reason about intergroup decisions; whilst simultaneously considering and giving priority to either morality (fairness, welfare) or group factors (social identities, group norms). The talk will include studies into the developmental intergroup processes underlying resource allocation and the exclusion/inclusion of group deviants who don’t conform to group norms (e.g. around gender and ‘doing’ science).
