How Biased Are We? A Conversation about Perception, Cognition, and Accuracy


March 05, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | Deutsches Haus at NYU | 42 Washington Mews | New York, NY 10003

Perceptions are the window to our world. Rather than merely producing a snapshot, our brains actively create our experiences when we perceive a scene, an object or a person. Given that background knowledge and biases always shape the ways in which we understand the world, how can we ever truly perceive persons and objects or do we simply see the world as we want it to be? A panel of psychologists and philosophers will present recent research in a conversation about our capacity to adequately understand the world around us.

Speakers: Albert Newen (Ruhr University Bochum), Lee Jussim (Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey), Emily Balcetis (New York University)

Moderator: Albert Newen

Organizers: Deutsches Haus at NYU, University Alliance Ruhr, DAAD, and DFG

Planning to pursue a graduate degree abroad can seem overwhelming. This event is designed to help you navigate the process – from finding the right program and university to understanding the requirements and application process.

This fair will introduce you to a wide range of graduate opportunities in all subject fields.
We will also address other aspects of studying in Germany, such as cost of living, visa and residence permits, health insurance, accommodation, and student jobs. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet representatives from various German universities, funding agencies, and partner organizations.
