Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Nour Kteily, assistant professor of management and organizations at the Kellogg School of Management, will discuss how modern psychological research on dehumanization has investigated it as a subtle or unconscious phenomenon, predicated on the assumption that the overt denials of targets’ humanity are a relic of a darker past. Here, we highlight the persistence of blatant dehumanization, examine its consequences, and consider interventions to mitigate its effects.

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
