Understanding Role of Social Norms in U.S. Political Divide
The recent election left many wondering about how Americans beliefs and perceptions could vary so widely – about everything from race to religion to all kinds of social norms. In this workshop ASU faculty member in leadership and interdisciplinary studies Jennifer L.S. Chandler, PhD, helps make sense of the diverse reactions to the presidential outcome by exploring the social and behavioral norms that divide us, an important first step in bridging that divide.
Chandler uses the model presented in her new book, “Colluding, Colliding, and Contending with the Norms of Whiteness,” to describe the social processes at work, to help people begin to recognize repeating patterns of behavior.
