Biography


My research interests include attitude development and expression in the following areas: prejudice and discrimination, ethnic and racial identity (with a focus on Arabs and African Americans), acculturation, immigration, and attitudes toward affirmative action beneficiaries. In addition, I also study the psychological antecedents of minority standardized test performance as well as issues related to culturally relevant research methodology. More recently, I have also been working on a project assessing the relationship between racial identity and body image for African American women.

Course Description:

This course reviews the history and evolution of the construct of race as a psychological and social phenomenon. While the course will be largely social psychological in nature, the insidiousness of race in practically every sphere of life necessitates a multidisciplinary approach. As such, in addition to readings from psychology, students will also be exposed to ideas in the areas of anthropology, sociology, and biology. The course will emphasize a theoretical and conceptual approach toward understanding the psychology of racial thinking.
