Dr. Keith Maddox

A talk by: 

Keith Maddox, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Psychology
Director, Social Cognition Lab
Tufts University

Dr. Maddox’s work examines the 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. In this talk, he will discuss his own experiences as a person of color in academia and how such experiences have informed his research program.
