Welcome to the Department of Psychology
The Department of Psychology Task Force on Multiculturalism and Diversity
presents a colloquium with Dr. Keith Maddox on Monday, April 7th.
Dr. Keith Maddox is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Tufts University Social Cognition Lab. He received his Ph.D. (1998) in social psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. His lab is focused on research programs examining social cognitive aspects of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination – seeking to understand topics such as: cognitive representations and stereotypes of African Americans based on variation in skin tone and other phenotypic characteristics; how stereotypes and prejudice influence perceptions of those who claim to be the targets of discrimination; stereotype threat among members of socially marginalized groups; and the role of social categories in spatial representation.
