The TUSC Lab is focused on research programs examining social cognitive aspects of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination. We seek to understand topics such as: cognitive representations and stereotypes of African Americans based on variation in skin tone and other phenotypic characteristics; the experience of stereotype threat among members of socially marginalized groups; how the perception of ulterior motives can influence social judgments; the role of social categories in spatial representation; and individual student projects covering a range of social psychological topics.
