Gerd Bohner

I am Professor of Social Psychology at Universität Bielefeld in Germany. My research interests include social cognition and motivation, persuasion, social influence, stereotyping, and the role of affect and other subjective experiences in social judgment. Some applications and content areas of interest are advertising, law, sexual harassment and violence, and human-machine interaction.

I received my first degree in Psychology (Dipl.-Psych.) in 1986 and my PhD in 1990, both from Heidelberg University. As a postdoc, I was a Feodor Lynen Fellow at New York University in 1991-1992, and have held posts since then at Mannheim, Würzburg, Canterbury (UK), and Bielefeld. From 2007 to 2011, I served as founding editor-in-chief and later associate editor of the journal Social Psychology:
