Jack Glaser

Jack Glaser, an associate professor in the Goldman School of Public Policy, is a social psychologist whose primary research interest is in stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination. His work includes investigations of the unconscious operation of stereotypes and prejudice using modern, computerized methods, and of the implications of such subtle forms of bias for criminal justice. He writes frequently on the topic of hate crime, and has carried out analyses of historical data as well as racist rhetoric on the Internet to challenge assumptions about economic predictors of intergroup violence. In addition to teaching and conducting research at the Goldman School, Glaser helps to train California judges in the psychology of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination and how they might operate implicitly to undermine fairness in the courtroom.
