Reading Group: Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do

The CAT will be hosting Claude M. Steele, who has been called “one of the few great social psychologists” on October 27, 2022. In his book, Steele offers a vivid first-person account of the research that supports his groundbreaking conclusions on stereotypes and identity. He sheds new light on American social phenomena from racial and gender gaps in test scores to the belief in the superior athletic prowess of black men, and lays out a plan for mitigating these “stereotype threats” and reshaping American identities. Let’s meet to discuss the implications of this research in preparation for his visit.

This book group will meet three times this semester (10/12, 10/19 & 10/26) from 3:30-4:30pm in ZSR 665 (Faculty Commons Classroom in ZSR Wilson Wing). We encourage you to attend one or all meetings, schedule permitting.
