Bailey Identity and Social Cognition Lab
How can we create a more inclusive, equitable society for all?
When you think of a "person," who comes to mind? Does your language influence how you think about different social groups? If you think of an identity as biologically caused versus socially constructed, does that matter? Why do children and adults tell more stories about boys than girls?
