Sam Gaertner is interested in intergroup relations and in particular,
how prejudice, discrimination and racism can be reduced. His research
explores the possibility that inducing members of different groups to
conceive of themselves as members of a more inclusive, superordinate group
can harness cognitive and motivational processes that encourage more
harmonious intergroup relations. This work has led back and
forth from the laboratory to more applied settings such as corporate
mergers, blended families and diverse public school classrooms. He
continues to study Aversive Racism (i.e., hidden biases) that exists
among ‘Well-intentioned’ people, who often express negative racial
attitudes in subtle, indirect and rationalizable ways that preclude them
from recognizing their racial biases.
