Not Heard Or Remembered: Psychology Seminar Series - Amanda Sesko
WhenWednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, 12:30 – 1:20 p.m.

Invisibility is under-recognized form of discrimination that is evident in perceivers' treatment of individuals who hold multiple stigmatized identities (e.g. Black women) as interchangeable and indistinguishable. As evidence of this effect, participants showed lower face recognition of and an increased inability to track statements made by Black women compared to White women and men and Black men (Sesko & Biernat, 2010). In this talk, Dr. Sesko will discuss data on what leads to perceivers to commit the invisibility effect, consequences of invisibility (e.g., in the workplace, for well-being), and new research investigating experiences of invisibility as conceptualized at the level of the perceiver (e.g., reporting not being heard or remembered).
