It is with great sadness that we, the International Society of Self and Identity, announce the passing of our friend and colleague Dr. Mark Alicke. As a faculty member of Ohio University’s Department of Psychology, he authored more than 100 publications in areas of the self, including the role of the self in social judgment, comparative biases, self-enhancement strategies, and in the psychology of blame and moral judgment. Dr. Alicke is best known for his research on the better-than-average effect, culpable control and blame, and the local dominance effect. He served as an associate editor for Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and as editor of our flagship journal on Self and Identity. Most recently, Dr. Alicke was the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Lifetime Career Award from the International Society for Self and Identity. He has had a significant impact on the field of social psychology and the self. Please see the following for more information:
