Welcome to the Stereotyping, Prejudice, and Facial Expression Lab at Indiana University, Bloomington! This lab is directed by Dr. Kurt Hugenberg in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences.
Research in our lab focuses on how perceivers' stereotypes, prejudices, and prejudice-related motives influence how we categorize, perceive, and understand others. In our work, this has ranged from how stereotypes affect how we perceive faces and bodies, to how social group memberships relate to how we engage with others online, to work on how the digital divide affects access to civil justice.
