Social Sciences Research Building (SSRB) Room SS-122, 1126 E. 59th Street
The Department of Psychology & The Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience present:
2017 Donald W. Fiske Distinguished Lecture: The Selling of ‘Implicit Bias,’ featuring Dr. Anthony G. Greenwald Professor, Psychology University of Washington
The concept of implicit bias is being sold both by psychologists bringing applications to public attention and by commercial interests offering to cure the damages implicit biases can cause. A byproduct of any scientific work being propagated beyond its originating disciplines is that non-experts will generate pseudo-knowledge that lacks solid empirical roots. This talk describes both what is solidly established empirically and misconceptions that are best dispelled.
