Professor Germine Awad draws upon her published work to help disentangle the issue of post-9/11 prejudice toward Middle Easterners and Arab Americans.
Awad draws on her books "The Impact of Acculturation and Religious Identification on Perceived Discrimination for Arab/Middle Eastern Americans" and "The Impact of Religiosity and Right Wing Authoritarianism on Prejudice Toward Middle Easterners," in examining how religiosity, ideological beliefs and religious group membership impact both perceived discrimination and prejudice toward Arab-Americans.
Awad is an assistant professor in the Educational Psychology Department at The University of Texas-Austin. Her research focuses on identifying the predictors of prejudice toward ethnic minority groups and examining how identity and acculturation shapes perceived discrimination.
