Stereotyping & Social Interactions (SSI) Lab
STEREOTYPES IN INTERRACIAL INTERACTIONS
RACE RELATIONS IN VIRTUAL REALITY
What makes interracial interactions go well? What causes them to fall apart? Do stereotypical racial group members affect behavior in interracial interactions?
Does interracial interaction anxiety exist in VR? If so, can VR interracial encounters improve interracial comfort? Can racial embodiment improve cross-understanding and empathy?
Can negative group stereotypes undermine performance and learning? To what extent do situational cues increase and decrease stereotype threat?
Selves in Contact: Can understanding racial group members’ sociocultural context defuse tense intergroup contact situations? Race and Space: Do negative associations between race and physical space impact beliefs and behavior?
