Back-to-Class Program: Preliminary Evidence for Triangulated Threat Theory of Race Relations from a Virtual World Study

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

John Tawa, assistant professor of psychology 

In this presentation Professor Tawa will share the development of a triangulated threat theory (TTT) and offer empirical support. TTT posits that Black and Asian relations are particularly adversely affected by perceived resource competition. Black, Asian, and White participants created self-resembling avatars in the virtual world, Second Life, and interacted in social events that modeled contexts of resource competition. Results partially supported TTT.

Open to all alumnae, students, and guests.
