Did the NPR stories you listened to change your views on bias

You should complete the assignment in three parts.

1) I want you to start this week’s assignment by listening to this NPR story about the idea of implicit bias. Next, read this second NPR story and listen to the accompanying audio. Finally, I want you to read Amy Butcher’s New York Times opinion piece “Emoji Feminism.”

2) Now, that you know more about the concept of implicit bias and the way it can present itself in society, I want you to take two Implicit Association Tests: those labeled “Race IAT” and “Gender-Career IAT.” Harvard scientists created the IAT to judge conscious versus unconscious judgments.

Why study one’s own perceptions? Because willingness and ability to judge one’s perceptions accurately are sometimes at odds. For example: A four-pack-daily smoker may report smoking only two. Why?

◦  Unwilling to answer accurately due to embarrassment

◦  Unable to answer accurately due to true belief that he/she smokes only two packs per day

How IATs work:

◦  A series of facial images of people featuring different characteristics is presented with words with “good” or “bad” qualities.

◦  Based on reactions and timed responses, the test supposedly reveals your unconscious association with different identities.

◦  These associations, while often not recognized explicitly for one of the above reasons, reflect implicit judgments that exist within all of us.

3) After digesting this week’s readings and taking both tests, you should post responses to the following questions on BB under “Class Blog – Week 5.”

Questions to be answered

  1. Did the NPR stories you listened to change your views on bias? If so, how?
  2. Did you ever consider that Emojis could be promoting stereotypes? No matter how you answer, elaborate.
  3. Do you believe the results of your IATs are accurate? Explain why or why not?
  4. To what extent do you believe exposure to popular culture, in all its forms, has impacted your perspective on the associations queried? Provide at least one example of popular culture that affected (or failed to affect) your perspective in your response.
  5. (Optional) Do you believe the IAT methodology is valid? Why or why not?

NOTE: To satisfactorily complete this assignment, your response should be at least 350 words. Please mention the results of your IATs, so that I know you took both. If you do not mention your results, you will not receive full credit. This blog will be private, so that only Gage, Chase and I can read your posts. Points will be deducted if you do not meet the word count or if it’s clear that you did not complete all steps.
