Departmental Seminar 2021-2022

Lecture Series In the Memory of Prof. Lee Ross. Co-sponsored by the Stanford Center for International Conflict and Negotiation, Stanford University 

With his students and colleagues, Prof. Ross identified concepts and phenomena that are central to research and practice focused on the social psychology of disputes and their resolution.  His contributions to the field of conflict and negotiation include documenting the effects of the following concepts: Naive realism (also known as the objectivity illusion), reactive devaluation of settlement offers, biased assimilation of mixed evidence, and the hostile media effect.
