Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice that Shapes what We See, Think, and Do
   
HDLecture Jennifer Eberhardt Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt
Department of Psychology
Stanford University (
Bio)

The Division of  Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education and Issues in Science and Technology magazine are pleased to announce that Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt will give the 2019 Henry and Bryna David lecture on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. in Washington, DC. 

A social psychologist at Stanford University, Eberhardt investigates the consequences of the psychological association between race and crime. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and a wide ranging array of methods—from laboratory studies to novel field experiments—Dr. Eberhardt has revealed the startling, and often dispiriting, extent to which racial imagery and judgments suffuse our culture and society, and in particular shape actions and outcomes within the domain of criminal justice.
