Constructing the “Other”: Two Complementary Perspectives on Discrimination, Social Exclusion, and Inequalities
It is expected that by 2044, the United States will become a majority-minority society, with Non-Hispanic Whites comprising less than half of the U.S. population. Researchers also estimated that children under the age of 18 would become the majority-minority this year. To help prepare for this transition, the Society for Research in Child Development launched the Child Development in a Diverse Majority Society lecture series in 2018. This webinar marks the third annual lecture in the series and is being held in collaboration with SRCD’s Ethnic & Racial Issues Committee and the organizers of the SRCD special topic meeting, “Construction of the ‘Other’: Development, Consequences, and Applied Implications of Prejudice and Discrimination” scheduled for May 2022.

These lectures will address the foundational question of how children learn prejudice and discrimination from the perspectives of at least two disciplines in developmental science. The discussion will serve to highlight possible avenues for collaboration across disciplines and inform future research on prejudice, bias, and discrimination.
