About the lecture 

Our societies are defined by difference and diversity. Some argue this diversity brings disharmony, others that it fosters tolerance and mutual respect. In this lecture, Professor Richard Crisp will discuss the psychological science that changes the parameters of this debate. He will show how understanding ‘the social mind’ can help promote intercultural exchange, and how, in turn, this can have benefits that extend beyond intercultural relations, enhancing individuals’ confidence, creativity, productivity and performance.
