Peter Glick

Peter Glick is a Professor of Psychology at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. He received his A.B. in psychology from Oberlin College in 1979 and his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Minnesota in 1984. Glick and frequent collaborator Susan T. Fiske received the 1995 Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize, honoring the "best paper or article of the year on intergroup relations" for "The Ambivalent Sexism Inventory: Differentiating Hostile and Benevolent Sexism." Research interests: how the structure of intergroup relations affects prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination; and how subjectively positive stereotypes (e.g., women are warm and nurturing, Jews are clever) can nevertheless feed into discrimination (e.g., paternalistic prejudice toward women, envious prejudice toward Jews).
