How and When Does the Arc Bend Toward Justice?
Steve Fein, PhD, social psychologist and Chair and Professor in the Department of Psychology at Williams College in Williamstown, MA, spoke to faculty and students within our department about The Arc of Prejudice: Some Social Psychological Perspectives. With a very engaging style, Dr. Fein discussed prejudice which, in addition to being a very timely topic, is an area of great importance on so many levels. We hear so much about these issues these days so it was especially important to hear a social psychology research perspective on constructs such as implicit and explicit bias. After the presentation, Dr. Fein met with students in the department’s Social Psychology class.
