Danielle Gaucher (PhD, University of Waterloo) is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Intergroup Relations and Social Justice Laboratory at the University of Winnipeg, MB, Canada. She studies how social inequality is maintained at individual and institutional levels with the goal of providing insight into social change, redress, and the re-engagement of member of vulnerable groups into the system.
Dr. Gaucher’s programmes of research investigate how, and why, social inequality is maintained, examining processes at both individual and institutional levels. Most of Dr. Gaucher’s research draws upon and extends social psychological theories of legitimacy, in particular system justification theory (SJT).
There will be a networking reception following the lecture.
