April 10, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:30 pm, Gore Recital Hall, Roselle Center for the Arts
2017 Distinguished Lecture on Diversity Unconscious and Implicit bias
Professor of Psychology,
University of Washington
Free public lecture on "The Selling of Implicit Bias" in Gore Recital Hall with book signing and reception to follow in the CFA Atrium. RSVP requested due to limited space.
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.
Event presented by the Center for the Study of Diversity with support from the College of Arts & Sciences, the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, the College of Earth, Ocean & Environment, Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics, the College of Education & Human Development, the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources, UD ADVANCE, the Office of Equity & Inclusion, Professional & Continuing Studies, and University of Delaware Police.
