Aaron Kay, Associate Professor of Management and Associate Professor Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University, will give a lecture, "The Psychological Power of the Status Quo: On the Malleability of Justice Beliefs and Attitudes Towards Social Inequality" at the Sanford School of Public Policy. Dr. Kay's research focuses on the relation between motivation, implicit social cognition, and social issues including criminal justice. He has a particular interest in how basic motivations and needs manifest as specific social and societal beliefs. These include: justice systems, the causes and consequences of stereotyping and system justification, religious belief, political ideology, and the attitudes people hold towards their organizations and institutions.
