Brian Lowery is a Professor of Organizational Behavior and a social psychologist by training.
In this talk, Prof. Lowery will examine how race moderates gender backlash and the ways that genders are constructed within races.
Professor Lowery’s research has two major threads. The first thread examines the operation of racial attitudes below the threshold of consciousness. The second thread, which he pursues through the work of the Lowery Lab, focuses on how people perceive inequality. Underlying both lines of work is the assumption that individuals may unintentionally exacerbate existing inequity, despite supporting the ideal of a just and fair society. This research has been published in major scholarly journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and Law and Human Behavior.
