About Our Guest: 

Quote Unquote Collective is a Canadian multi-disciplinary performance company that aims to work outside the boundaries of tradition and expectation. Engaging with urgent social and political themes, the company is founded on the firm belief that art and performance are tools to provoke conversation and change. Co-founders Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava, who both have a strong background in physical theatre and music, have joined forces to produce work in a variety of genres and disciplines as a means to make new, experimental, and provocative performance work that ignites conversation within the community and the world at large. Defying conventions of style and form, the collective is built on the idea that individual ideas demand to be expressed through different forms, and should be expressed by whatever means necessary.

In this episode, we get into the nitty-gritty of Anger and Friendship with psychology professor Kelci Harris, Ph.D. We chat about the difference between anger in our friendships versus how it shows up in family or romantic relationships, we exchange some personal stories about conflict in our own friendships, and Kelci shares about her research in personality and intergroup friendships. A truly enjoyable conversation among three friends spread across the continent.

About Our Guest: 

Kelci Harris, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the department of Psychology at the University of Victoria. Kelci’s research centres around friendship. Her work is driven by three main research questions: How do friendships affect us? How do we affect our friendships? And what do friendships look like?  Kelci studies how personality and individual differences impact how we make, keep, and lose friends. She also holds an interest in intergroup friendships, and how our social identities influence the structure, composition, and utilization of our friendship networks. Kelci completed her doctoral work at Washington University in St. Louis.
