Award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions to Psychology: Jennifer A. Richeson
American Psychologist, v64 n8 p691-693 Nov 2009
Jennifer A. Richeson, winner of the Award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions to Psychology, is cited for creative and sophisticated investigations of the psychological and neural underpinnings of prejudice, discrimination, and intergroup relations. Considering the perspectives of both minority and majority group members, Richeson has produced new insights into the psychological dynamics that unfold within the crucible of interracial interactions. Her analysis identifies and synthesizes basic attentional, self-regulatory, and motivational processes critical in shaping the quality and quantity of intergroup contact. In addition to the citation, a biography and selected bibliography of Richeson's work are presented.
