Patricia Grace Devine is a professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where she was the psychology department chair from 2009 to 2014.[1] She was also the 2012 president of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.[2]

She is an experimental social psychologist who specializes in prejudice, stereotypes, and intergroup relations.[3] She received her PhD in social psychology from Ohio State University in 1986.[4]

Major Contributions

Devine's 1989 study, Stereotypes and prejudice: Their automatic and controlled components,[5] received the prestigious Scientific Impact Award from the Society of Experimental Social Psychology, recognizing her paper's lasting impact that fundamentally altered the landscape of prejudice and stereotyping research.[6] Her paper demonstrated that stereotypes and prejudicial emotions can be activated automatically, in opposition to one's explicit, controlled beliefs.[7] This insight has spurred forth decades of research on the automaticity and control of prejudice.

She recently developed a prejudice intervention that taught participants cognitive techniques to overcome non-intentional race bias, which was able to reduce implicit bias up to two months after the intervention.[8]

Recent Publications

Devine, together with her student William T. L. Cox, and joined by Lyn Abramson and Steven Hollon, recently proposed the integrated perspective on prejudice and depression, which unites cognitive theories of depression with theories of prejudice, casting them in a common terminology and identifying ways that depression research can inform prejudice research and vice versa.[18]

Devine, along with Cox, Bischmann, and Hyde at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have suggested that “gaydar” is an alternate label for using stereotypes to infer orientation (e.g., inferring that fashionable men are gay) (2015).[19] These studies have revealed that orientation is not visible from the face—participants did, however, readily infer orientation from stereotypic attributes (e.g., fashion, career). Compared to a control group, people stereotyped more when led to believe in gaydar, whereas people stereotyped less when told gaydar is an alternate label for stereotyping. It was concluded that “gaydar” serves as a legitimizing myth that disguises and perpetuates stereotyping.
