PSYCHOLOGY 244 Section:
STEREOTYPING PREJUDICE AND STIGMA
Spring Quarter 2008
Course examines the social psychological underpinnings of stereotyping, prejudice, and stigma. We will examine these questions from a number of perspectives, including sociocultural, motivational, and cognitive approaches. Topics to be covered may include the origins of stereotyping and prejudice, the ways in which these constructs are maintained and perpetuated, the ways in which they may be changed, the extent to which their expression is intended and controllable, and the effects on those who are targets of stereotyping, prejudice, and stigma. The ways that social, motivational, and cognitive processes influence each of these topics will be examined.
