Stacey goguen on stereotype threat

I wrote about the mind-on-line conference in an earlier post.  Let me here highlight Stacey Goguen’s paper on stereotype threat and the comments on it.

In the last part of her paper Goguen draws our attention to the effects of encountering negative stereotypes on one’s sense/conception/understanding of one’s self.  This seems to me a very valuable addition to the literature.  And Goguen makes it clear that more is to be done.  Have a look!
