Kleve/Kamp-Lintfort, May 29, 2015: Gossip – speaking about others behind their backs – can be found throughout social communication contexts. While it may be looked down upon in everyday contexts, gossip is seen in psychological research as an effective way of acquiring valuable social information. This Studium Generale presentation will provide a detailed look at gossip from this scientific perspective.
