Congratulations to Dr. Susan Cross (PI) for receiving a National Science Foundation grant ($589,947) for her research titled “Honor as a Goal Pursuit: A Cross-Cultural Investigation”.
Project Summary: The objective of this research is to understand and attempt to reduce the dangers that arise when those from honor cultures feel their honor has been threatened by an insult or false accusation. In particular, this research tests the hypothesis that concern over maintenance and protection of honor among members of honor cultures can interfere with other goal-related behavior. The grant is active from 2015 – 2019. More information about Dr. Cross’s research can be found here.
