  • Latino Responses to Stereotype Threat (2015-16) — Institute for Social Sciences
    Faculty Research Interdisciplinary Projects Info Latino Responses to Stereotype Threat 2015 16 This project addresses a fundamental gap in our understanding of how Latinos perceive process report and react to discrimination and stereotyping PI Brad Jones Political Science Collaborators Jeffrey Sherman Psychology Dave Vannette Political Science While considerable work has been done in the social sciences on the mechanisms that lead non Latinos to engage in stereotyping and discriminatory practices far less work has been done on the crucial question of how Latinos themselves perceive and process discriminatory action rhetoric and communication Further to the extent we understand how Latinos respond to stereotype threat a concept that is defined and operationalized below our understanding of this process has been limited in two ways First experimental studies of how Latinos react to stereotype threat has almost exclusively been limited to subjects who are university students with English language skills As such in almost every experimental study there is no variation in the important attribute of language use and little variation in generational status and or immigration status Second to the extent studies have incorporated variation in Latino group attributes such as language use generational differences and immigration status they have tended to rely on observational data i e non experimental data Therefore the ability to assess the causal effect of stereotype threat and how threat is moderated or mediated by Latino attributes has been limited We argue that understanding of how Latinos respond and react to stereotype threat requires careful consideration and measurement of how attributes of Latinos moderate beliefs about stereotypes and responses to potentially discriminatory environments In the course of this project we will create and pre test experimental materials in both Spanish and English assess the critical question of measurement equivalency and provide replications and extensions of work
