Dear IRM Faculty,
In solidarity with everyone participating in the Shut Down STEM day of reflection, we have decided to cancel today’s IRM faculty lunch. Thank you to Pantelis for forgoing his opportunity to speak today to allow us to focus on this important movement.
If you want to learn more about the June 10 #ShutDownSTEM movement, there is more information here and here. Please share with us any of the results or suggestions your labs discuss today or any other thoughts you may have about how the IRM can contribute to Penn’s actions for improving racial equity on campus.
Illuminating the Law: How Science Can Help Us Identify and Address Bias in the Criminal Justice System
Adam Benforado’s principal interest is in applying insights from the mind sciences—most notably cognitive psychology—to law and legal theory. Collaborating with psychologists on novel experiments, Professor Benforado is focused on developing a more realistic understanding of the behavior of legal actors.
Join us for this Special Seminar to discuss how bias influences the criminal justice system in the United States and how these insights can inform our practice of science.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
