Rodriguez Mosquera Guest Edits Journal on Honor

Assistant Professor of Psychology Patricia Rodriguez Mosquera was guest editor of a special issue of the journal Group Processes and Intergroup Relations, titled, “In the name of honor: On virtue, reputation, and violence.” The papers in the special issue illustrate the importance of honor in a variety of social-psychological processes, including morality, male violence, sexuality and gender, in-group identification, responses to devaluation, and biculturalism. Moreover, the papers expand and deepen our understanding of honor by presenting research on honor in a diverse array of groups (e.g. the military, law enforcement), relationship contexts (e.g. family relations, romantic relations) and countries (e.g. Afghanistan, Brazil, Canada, Estonia, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Switzerland).
