The Stereotyping & Prejudice Research Laboratory in the Psychology Department at the University of Chicago is devoted to understanding the effect of group membership on our perceptions of others and of ourselves. We study a variety of topics, such as the tendency for racial outgroups to trigger a sense of danger as well as the capacity of an ingroup to foster a sense of common purpose and belonging.
