Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

Monday, February 11, 2019 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Alice Statler Auditorium
7 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Mahzarin Banaji, Richard Clark Cabot Professor of Social Ethics and Chair in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, studies the disparities between conscious expressions of values, attitudes and beliefs, and less conscious, implicit representations of mental content. Her work emphasizes the possibility that values and aspirations can be inconsistent with behavior.

The co-author of Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People, she explains the science of how humans make decisions. Her session is meant to be entertaining and even fun in addition to educational. 

She is delivering both The Robert L. Harris, Jr. ADVANCEments in Science and the annual Institute for the Social Sciences Distinguished Lecture in the Social Sciences. The lecture is also sponsored by the Department of Psychology Colloquium and the Center for Bright Beams. Following her lecture, there will be a reception open to everyone.
