How Can Psychology Help Us Understand Prejudice, Discrimination, & Racial Inequalities

How Can Psychology Help Us Understand Prejudice, Discrimination, & Racial Inequalities?

Tuesday, November 29, 12pm
Mendel 101
St. Catherine University

How can psychology - what we know about individual's thoughts, emotions and behaviors - help us understand prejudice, discrimination and racial inequalities? How can psychology help us discuss these difficult topics and find a way to move forward, together, to work towards racial equality? These are all questions we'll be discussing and exploring as psychology faculty discuss St. Kate's English professor Taiyon Coleman's essay "Disparate impacts: Moving to Minnesota to live just enough for the city" in A Good Time for the Truth.

We will be giving away a copy of A Good Time for the Truth. Copies of the book are also available through the St. Kate's library in both print and eBook copies.

This discussion is hosted by the St. Kate's Psychology Department, part of Food for Thought Lunchtime Discussion Series and is in solidarity with St. Kate's One Read for Racial Justice.

If you need an accommodation to attend, please contact St. Kate’s O’Neill Center at least 48 hours in advance at oneill_center@stkate.edu.

Questions? Contact: Dr. Jamie Peterson, jjpeterson@stkate.edu.
