Sssp -_SydneyThe texts of the contributions to be presented at the next "Sydney symposium of social psychology", 17-20 March, are now online.

Together with Mauro Bertolotti I'm presenting the following contribution:

Catellani, P. e Bertolotti, M. (2014). The perception of politicians’ morality: Attacks and defences.



Catellani, P. e Bertolotti, M. Identity, values, and food,

in the volume F. Botturi & R. Zoboli (Eds.) Convivium: Representation, meaning, exclusion, sustainability, Milan, Vita & Pensiero.


Is there a relationship between the food we eat and our values and identity? To answer this question, we first look at what are the relations between personal values and food choices. We then take a more in-depth look at the motivations underlying our food choices and how such motivations can change in time.
