Intergroup bias.
This chapter reviews the extensive literature on bias in favor of in-groups at the expense of out-groups and identifies areas for future research on key moderators of bias and the link between intergroup bias and more corrosive forms of social hostility. Expand
The Contact Caveat
Negative contact may be more strongly associated with increased racism and discrimination than positive contact is with its reduction, and the contact hypothesis is extended by issuing an important caveat. Expand
Social class differences in social integration among students in higher education: a meta-analysis and recommendations for future research.
A meta-analysis of 35 studies found that social class (socioeconomic status) is related to social integration among students in higher education: Working-class students are less integrated thanExpand
Negative Intergroup Contact Makes Group Memberships Salient: Explaining Why Intergroup Conflict Endures
The novel hypothesis of a valence-salience effect, whereby negative contact causes higher category salience than positive contact is advanced, suggests that intergroup contact is potentially biased toward worsening intergroup relations. Expand
Negative intergroup contact is more influential, but positive intergroup contact is more common: Assessing contact prominence and contact prevalence in five Central European countries
The present research tested the idea that the ecological impact of intergroup contact on outgroup attitudes can be fully understood only when relative frequency and relative influence of positive andExpand
Secondary transfer effects from imagined contact: group similarity affects the generalization gradient.
Using bootstrapped mediation models, effects of positive imagined contact on attitudes towards illegal immigrants were shown to generalize to other groups that were independently ranked as similar to illegal immigrants, but not to dissimilar groups. Expand
Positive and extensive intergroup contact in the past buffers against the disproportionate impact of negative contact in the present
Negative (vs positive) intergroup contact may have a disproportionately large impact on intergroup relations because of valence-salience effects, whereby negative contact causes higher categoryExpand
“I Am Working-Class”
This review provides a critical appraisal of the measurement of students’ social class and socioeconomic status (SES) in the context of widening higher education participation. Most assessments ofExpand

Do p Values Lose Their Meaning in Exploratory Analyses? It Depends How You Define the Familywise Error Rate
Several researchers have recently argued that p values lose their meaning in exploratory analyses due to an unknown inflation of the alpha level (e.g., Nosek & Lakens, 2014; Wagenmakers, 2016). ForExpand
