The nature of prejudice: 60 years after Allport: Seminar of the Intercultural Section of the Czech-Moravian Psychological Society

Sylvie Graf, Tibor Žingora

The first seminar of the Intercultural Section of the Czech-Moravian Psychological Society under the lead of Sylvie Graf was held on April 22, 2015 in Brno. The anniversary of Gordon Allport’s influ­ential book “The Nature of Prejudice” (1954) offered an excellent opportunity for academics interested in psychology of intergroup relations to discuss recent advancements in research on prejudice.
