Jack Glaser Book Talk on Racial Profiling

The Library is pleased to announce Suspect Race: Causes and Consequences of Racial Profiling, a book talk by Jack Glaser, Goldman School of Public Policy. Drawing on criminology, history, psychological science, and legal and policy analysis, Glaser offers a broad and deep assessment of the causes and consequences of racial profiling, resulting in the first in-depth and accessible explanation of this phenomenon.

Jack Glaser, received his PhD in psychology from Yale University in 1998 and is a professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He conducts research on stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination, examining phenomena ranging from unconscious thoughts, feelings and motives to discriminatory behaviors like racial profiling and hate crimes.

Glaser will discuss how research helps to explain racial bias in police use of lethal force.
