Examining the Role of Exposure to Nonverbal Signals in Prejudice Creation

Project: Research project

Description

In a set of experiments, I propose to test the hypothesis that
exposure to biased nonverbal signals can result in group prejudice.
Previous research indicates that exposure to biased nonverbal
signals can exacerbate existing racial prejudices. The proposed
experiments will test whether exposure to biased nonverbal signals,
favoring one novel individual over another, can create prejudice in
the context of novel groups (i.e., against the target of negative
nonverbal signals’ group). This work has important implications for
understanding how prejudice is formed and spread through social
groups.
