Steven O. Roberts

Assistant Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

Research Initiative:

Roberts will integrate research from the social sciences and humanities to identify the psychological bases of racism and suggest strategies for dismantling racial bias. His research will build on previous findings that the belief in white supremacy emerges early in childhood. He will work on three projects to advance the social scientific understanding of racism: a theoretical paper on descriptive-to-prescriptive reasoning, a theoretical paper on white supremacy, and three empirical papers on white supremacy in psychological science.
