Toward a Manifesto for Diverse Psychological Science
Monday, March 26, 2018
Beckman Institute Auditorium
405 N. Mathews, Urbana

Enrique Neblett
Professor of Psychology, University of North Carolina


Professor Neblett has argued that the only acceptable and legitimate form of psychological science is one that incorporates diversity. Diversity is not a “special” topic or interest. Psychological science must consider and capture the full breadth of human experience and understand how culture informs worldviews and behaviors. Thus, research and training must both prioritize multiculturalism. In addition to examining the diversity of subjects, the academy as well as its leadership must reflect diversity.

This talk is also the Lyle Lanier Lecture and keynote address for the Illinois Summit on Diversity in Psychological Science.
