Racial Categorization: Impact on Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Face Processing

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

The human brain has evolved to efficiently process information related to race with same-race faces being processed differently than other-race faces. Dr. Kim MacLin and Dr. Otto MacLin, Professors of Psychology, UNI, will discuss how this differential processing affects recognition accuracy, memory, stereotypes, and prejudice in laboratory and real-world contexts. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit RACE: Are We So Different? on display at the University Museum February 6 through June 9.

Location: 
University Museum, 3219 Hudson Road, Cedar Falls, IA 50614-0199
