 UCSB Arts and Lectures presents a FREE lecture by Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt, author of Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do. A professor of psychology at Stanford and social psychologist with expertise in racial bias, Dr. Eberhardt's lecture on her book Biased will highlight how stereotypes can powerfully shape our visual perception, memory, and behavior – in the classroom, the courtroom, the boardroom, and beyond – and offer practical, actionable suggestions for reform.

Dr. Eberhardt is the recipient of many prestigious awards including a 2014 MacArthur "genius" fellowship, has been named one of Foreign Policy's 100 Leading Global Thinkers, and has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Additionally, Dr. Eberhardt is the co-founder and co-director of Social Psychological Answers to Real World Questions (SPARQ), a Stanford Center "think tank" that works with researchers and practitioners to address social problems.
