Professor Ayşe Üskül awarded ERC Consolidator Grant

Professor Ayşe K. Üskül has been awarded a five-year European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant for a project entitled “The Cultural Logic of Honor and Social Interaction: A Cross-Cultural Comparison” (HONORLOGIC).

The project aims to initiate a step-change in our understanding of cultural variation in important interpersonal processes by providing unique, multimethod, comparative and converging evidence from a wide range of cultural groups. Ayşe will answer the question “How do cultural groups that promote honor as a core cultural value approach coordinating with others, reaching compromise, and offering apologies?” by integrating insights from social/cultural psychology, behavioral economics, and anthropology.
