About Dan

I am Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Ohio State University.   For me, the Emeritus title implies continued contributions to the University and field of psychology but to my grown children it means continued eligibility for OSU football tickets!


After an enjoyable career at Ohio State, I continue to find writing and research on psychology very satisfying especially in relation to peace, conflict and social justice. I also enjDan Christie oy growing the field of “peace psychology” and helping others find venues for doing the same. To those ends, I have edited a three-volume set entitled, Encyclopedia of Peace Psychology and serve as Series Editor for the Peace Psychology Book Series.


I view peace psychology as an area that seeks to deepen our understanding of the means of promoting harmony and equity in human relations and systems. While my interests within peace psychology are wide-ranging, at present I’m focused most on the nature of humanizing processes especially in intergroup relations.


I tweet (@PsychOfPeace) mostly on the topic of “humanizing the other.”
