The Bias Inside Us Exhibition Event: What Should We Do About Biases?
Everyone has biases. These biases take many forms, have a range of impacts, and are almost always difficult to overcome. Given this, what should we do? This talk, presented by Dr. Callum Ingram, will present a range of possible individual, cultural, economic, and governmental responses to biases, before opening and discussion about their possible strengths and shortcomings. Callum Ingram is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Nevada, Reno. He teaches classes in political theory and the history of political thought. He is currently working on two research projects: one on the tactics activists use to make structural injustices understandable; the other on how accusations of "narcissism" (and other psychopathologies) have been used in 20th century American politics.
The Bias Inside Us is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Major support is provided by The Otto Bremer Trust.
