Maureen Eger (University of Umeå) will present today. The talk is titled:

"When I was growing up": The lasting impact of immigrant presence on native-born American attitudes towards immigrants and immigration"

Abstract:
Research on prejudice, including anti-immigrant sentiment, focuses on the relationship between contemporaneous social conditions and attitudes while ignoring the context during one’s impressionable years. Yet other scholarship identifies adolescence as a critical period for the development of attitudes. Therefore, we design research to investigate the relationship among temporally distal and temporally proximal demographic contexts and native-born attitudes towards immigration and immigrants.
