Fellow social psychologists honor Brewer for her contributions to the discipline over nearly half a century. Among the topics are new evolutionary perspectives on theory of mind, agent-based modeling as a tool for studying social identity processes, in-group positivity and out-group negativity among members of an Internet hate group, an evolutionary and social dominance perspective on gendered prejudice, laboratory and field investigations of the persistent dilemma of cooperation and the commons, and how transformational cross-cultural experiences facilitate creativity. She herself contributes a retrospective of her career. Psychology Press is an imprint of the Taylor & Francis group.
