H/P Lecture Series: You Have To Be Brilliant To Do That! ***Postponed***

Sarah Jane Leslie, 1943 Professor of Philosophy at Princeton, will talk about her research, including recent experiments she has conducted about stereotypes and raw brilliance.

Professor Leslie will address the philosophy and psychology of prejudice and sterotyping and how it affects representation in various academic disciplines and the resultant professional and personal choices we make.

As lead up to this lecture, we encourage members to read Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do, written by Claude Steele, social psychologist and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost at UC Berkley.  This book was the pre-read this year selected by President Eisgruber, Princeton.  It is a fascinating exploration of how pervasive stereotypes, racial and gender, influence behavior and performance.
