The UCI Interdisciplinary Center for the Scientific Study of Ethics and Morality presents

"Forgiveness in an Age of Terror"
with Adam Martin, Ph.D. Alumnus, Political Science, UC Irvine

Friday, April 27, 2012
12:30-1:50 p.m.
Social Science Plaza B, Room 5250

While much is known about the impact of forgiveness after political conflicts are over, less is known about how traumatized populations may use forgiveness when conflicts are ongoing, particularly when dialog with the offender in war or terrorism is impossible. Adam will review findings and literature on forgiveness in psychology, religion and political science, present results of his dissertation research on the psychological correlates of Americans' forgiveness of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and outline a future agenda for forgiveness research in light of these and related findings.

A light lunch will be provided at noon.
