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). The special issue is online at http://gpi.sagepub.com/content/vol16/issue3/?etoc
