Other Projects

Outside of intersectionality and the relationship between ideology and emotions, I have several other projects I am working on.

With Dr. Mahzarin Banaji I am interested in how children come to recognize dominance structure of patriarchy, as well as the implicit representations of the racial slur, nigger and nigga.

With Dr. Jennifer Richeson and Dr. Michael Kraus I am investigating the sociocontextual factors that undergird people’s reactions to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in America. In particular we are focusing on the relationship between the diversity represented in people’s local contexts and their overestimation of racial progress. With Dr. Ivy Onyeador we are also researching overestimation of racial economic progress intersectionally, by asking how gender complicates people’s understandings of progress. Finally, Dr. Richeson, Xanni Brown, Dr. Michael Kraus, and I are researching the importance of shifting demographics in America in altering people’s perceptions of the legitimacy and stability of racial hierarchies.
