Thomas Pettigrew, research professor of social psychology, spent last spring in Australia as the Norman Munn Distinguished Visiting Professor at Flinders University in South Australia. This fall he gave the keynote addresses at three conferences: one in Lisbon, Portugal, on European prejudice against minorities; another at UCLA on American racism; and a third at Harvard University honoring the centennial of Gordon Allport's birth. Allport was Pettegrew's teacher and mentor.
