Section 102 The Perception of the Social and Political System in the Time of Transition to Democracy in Central Europe.
Rapid transition to a democratic system and free market economy in Central Europe pose serious problems for citizens in all countries of the region. Massive changes of the sociopolitical system challenge the old ways of behaving and understanding the social world. Drawing upon the results of empirical research, this course will examine the ways in which people of the region construe the changes, their values and political beliefs, and their expectations, frustrations, and anxieties. The instructor, Bodan Wojciszke, was educated in Poznan, Gdansk, and Warsaw, and is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Institute of Psychology at the University of Gdansk. He is the author of five books and numerous publications on social psychology, cognitive processes, and perception. His most recent publication, The Psychology of Love, enjoys a prominent position on Poland's best-seller list. (Wojciszke)
