Race and the 2012 Presidential Election

Anthony Greenwald, professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington, will present a lecture on "What Role Will Race Play in the 2012 Presidential Election?"

Barack Obama's defeat of John McCain in 2008 was widely taken to signal the start of an era in which race would no longer be a significant factor in American society. This talk will address: (1) What role did race play in the 2008 election? (2) What is the present status of racial attitudes in America? and (3) What role will race play in the 2012 presidential election?

Speaker Bio:
Dr. Greenwald is world famous for his work on implicit measures of attitudes and is the developer of the Implicit Association Test.
