Examining the Role of Exposure to Nonverbal Signals in Prejudice Creation

Project: Research project

Project Details


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. * Abstract: As of: 11/15/2017 Page 1 of 5 Pages * Indicates
