Josephine Gellersen (Graduate Student)

I am a social psychologist and a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Eran Halperin and Prof. Tamar Saguy, at the Department of Psychology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I received my BA in Psychology and my MRes in Behavioural and Social Sciences from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. My main research area focusses on the peace-promoting vs. peace-disruptive qualities of emotions and related identity processes in contexts of intergroup conflict. I am particularly interested in the emotion of hope on the one hand, and feelings of betrayal and failed expectations on the other. I am curious as to how such sentiments relate to political attitudes and behaviour, also by affecting group members’ social identity. Behaviours I am interested in include political party vote choice, as well as violent and non—violent forms of collective action.

I received by PhD from ELTE, under the supervision of Tamar Saguy, Eran Halperin and Anna Kende. My general research interests are different aspects of intergroup relations, particularly involving groups in conflict (e.g., the Israeli-Palestinian conflict), minority and majority members in a society (e.g., the Roma and non-Roma in Eastern Europe, African Americans or Muslims and Whites in the U.S.), or gender norms. In my dissertation research, I investigate the psychological and intergroup processes that underlie the phenomenon of witnessing and (not) confronting prejudice and discrimination as a bystander.
