My current research interests focus mainly on the interaction between language and social cognition. Through experimental work and archive analyses I am investigating how different features of language (such grammatical gender, word order, metaphors, writing direction) affect how we perceive individuals and groups and how we interpret their actions. I am also interested in how listeners are affected by gay/lesbian- (vs. heterosexual-) sounding voices.

In a separate line of research I am investigating how women and men are affected by sexualized media portrayals of women. Most recently I have started to investigate the role of social-cognitive processes in dealing with and reacting to wealth inequality.

TESI MAGISTRALI E TRIENNALI (DALL'AA 2018_19):

La disuguaglianza economica: come influenza le persone e come le persone reagiscono ad essa

Orario: Giovedi 14-16 a partire da 13/10
Tutor: Maass & Galdi
Num laureandi: fino a 4 laurendi complessivamente

Secondo statistiche molto recenti, il 20% più ricco della popolazione italiana possiede il 68% dell’intera ricchezza del nostro paese, mentre il 20% della popolazione più povera solo lo 0,6 %. I dati a disposizione suggeriscono inoltre che la disuguaglianza economica in Italia è destinata ad aumentare nei prossimi anni. Questo laboratorio si propone di indagare la percezione che gli italiani hanno dei livelli di disuguaglianza economica nel paese e di studiare i possibili differenti effetti negativi della disuguaglianza sulla popolazione più privilegiata, i più poveri e la classe intermedia.
