Do Lunches create a space for undergrads (and undergrads only!) to interact directly with authors, practitioners, and scholars. On December 6th, we will host Jennifer Lynn Eberhardt, an American Social Psychologist and Professor in the Psychology Department at Stanford University as well as co-director of SPARQ. In 2014 she won the MacArthur fellowship. She studies the mechanisms and effects of racial bias in our daily lives. With cutting-edge and vital research, Jennifer Eberhardt teaches us how our brains work and how racism does its work. By illuminating how we unconsciously associate blackness and crime, and by working with law enforcement agencies to disrupt those associations, she shows us that the problems with the criminal justice system are ones we created and ones we can solve. Her book Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think and Do received lots of attention. You can listen an interview of Dr. Eberhardt on NPR here, and here is an article she wrote for The Guardian.
The Do Lunch will take place on December 6th, at noon, in West Duke 101. Please RSVP to email@example.com, and include any dietary restrictions.
