From larrikin behaviour to celebrity kidnappings and extortion, student pranks at the University of Adelaide have been a long-time tradition. The processions of the early 1900s to the 1950s had offended many with their questionable floats which some considered to be in poor taste. The "Prosh" (short for procession) began in the 1950s and saw historical pranks such as the suspension of an FJ Holden under the University Footbridge in 1971.

The 1960s and 70s saw more political activism than previous years, where violent protests took place in the anti-Vietnam War movement. Radical groups such as the Marxist Students for Democratic Action also established themselves to protest the undemocratic nature of university administration. Other movements such as Women's and Gay Liberation began in the radical 1970s.

In more recent times students have found an alternative platform for political discussion and activism in social media. This exhibition was created in conjunction with the University of Adelaide Archives.

Mindless Meat Eating: The Role of Cognitive Dissonance and Negative Emotions in the Consumption of Animals

Dr Carolyn Semmler, Senior Lecturer, School of Psychology, University of Adelaide

We consume animals and yet also state that we love, respect and care for them. We buy animal products where we have little knowledge of their providence or how they were produced. Why do humans act in ways that contradict espoused values? What sort of processes might we engage in to keep behaving in this way? How are we successful at 'pulling the wool over our own eyes'? How might strong negative emotions such as disgust, disappointment and anger impact on consumption? This talk will discuss the role of cognitive dissonance in meat consumption and how it may help us to understand the meat paradox. The results of research conducted by Elisha Dowsett, in collaboration with Anna Chur-Hansen, Rachel Ankeny and Heather Bray, will be presented.
