Women and men, blacks and whites often feel they are being judged differently for doing the same things. But their experiences are often dismissed as “overly sensitive” or “playing the race card”. This lecture will present key findings of a timely Marie Curie Project conducted at LSE.
Identical leadership films featuring different protagonists and cutting-edge interview methodologies involving first-person videos provided deep insights into how people perceive others and how they judge others on personality scales. These new findings illuminate the pathways to the emergence of implicit biases and their manifestation in standardised surveys, which are widely used in organisations and research.
Jana Uher is Senior Research Fellow, MarieCurie Fellow and member of the Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team at LSE.
Julia Black is Interim Director of LSE and Professor of Law at LSE.
The Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science (@PsychologyLSE) study and teach societal psychology: the psychology of humans in complex socio-technical systems (organisations, communities, societies). Our research deals with real-world issues, we train the future global leaders.
If you're familiar with The Big Bang Theory on TV, you may think of particle physicists as an odd bunch! Why do boffins spend their time in huge underground labs like CERN accelerating particles in endless circles like a giant train set? How do you get a train of particles to nearly the speed of light anyway, and why would you want to? What happens when the particles collide and might anything go wrong?
Find out from Particle Accelerator Physicist Dr Stephen Gibson, and friends, as they present live demonstrations on the wonders of the Large Hadron Collider, and how it is unlocking the secrets of nature. Learn why it was built, how it works and how Royal Holloway’s team are helping to stop it self-destruct (again) in an explosion of liquid helium!
Warning: loud demonstrations; not for the faint of heart!
About the speaker:
Dr. Gibson has a D.Phi in Experimental Particle Physics from the University of Oxford and has helped build and run the ATLAS experiment at CERN. When not lecturing Physics students at Royal Holloway, University of London, he still spends time in underground tunnels at CERN...
