March

March 1, 12:30-1:30pm, Library Auditorium: Beyond majority-minority: Presumed alliances and intergroup relations in the 21st century. Our speaker this semester will be Maureen Craig, Assistant Professor of Psychology at NYU. Here’s a link to her website to learn more about her research: https://wp.nyu.edu/craiglab/. This event is being co-sponsored by African American Studies and Political Science.

The racial diversity of the United States is increasing such that White Americans are expected to comprise less than 50% of the national population by midcentury—a demographic shift that is often called a trend towards a “majority-minority” nation. While this “majority-minority” terminology suggests a dichotomy between White and “non-White,” the present research moves beyond a broad majority-vs.-minority characterization to explore when people may expect political coalitions among the four largest American racial groups. One series of studies tests whether people expect that minorities will generally support one another against Whites’ political interests or if the extent to which policies are seen as relating to American cultural identity and societal status shape inferred support due to stereotypes about racial groups’ placement along these dimensions (see Zou & Cheryan, 2017). Another set of studies examine how the salience of national demographic trends toward greater diversity may affect future intergroup dynamics and coalitions. These experiments reveal that making salient the growth of Hispanic population and power leads White Americans to look to another higher-status racial group (Asian Americans) as a potential ally in maintaining the current racial hierarchy. This work has implications for how individuals react to longstanding and ongoing demographic trends and may provide insight into how future race relations could unfold.
