In the Mind’s Eye: The Psychology of Stereotypes, Identity, and Perception

Thursday, January 21, 2010 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Featured Speaker: Alan J. Lambert, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Washington University in St. Louis

We’re all familiar with the many stereotypes that exist in our world, but when and why do we choose to express or suppress them? How does the situation—moods, personalities, surroundings—lead people to either use or avoid using stereotypic knowledge as a basis for responding to others? What is the psychology behind attempts to justify race-based prejudice, and how do these prejudices express themselves differently in public versus privately? Washington University Psychology Professor, Dr. Alan Lambert, answers these questions and more in this fascinating look at the psychology of prejudice, intolerance and perception.

Presented in conjunction with the traveling exhibition, RACE: Are We So Different? on display at the Missouri History Museum, January 16, 2010 – April 4, 2010.
