<p>To whom it may concern,</p> <p>Hello! Down below is our presentation abstract & PDF poster for The Effects of Racial Categorization on Emotions and Inclusion.</p> <p><em>Presentation Abstract: </em>Racial/ethnic minorities may face the risk of being inappropriately classified or being denied the opportunity to accurately self-categorize. As a result, minorities may feel less valued as members of a society that denies these possibilities. Previous research has shown that disregarding one’s preferred social representation may lead to feeling invisible (Fryberg & Townsend, 2008). This research explores whether giving Hispanic or Latino individuals the opportunity to self-categorize with their preferred racial/ethnic groups affects their emotions, feelings of inclusion as US Americans, and personal judgments of their social rank in relation to others. We predicted that being recognized as, and being able to choose, a preferred racial/ethnic identity would provide both optimal identity distinctiveness and inclusion in the superordinate American group, and thus creating the most positive emotions, feelings of inclusion, and self-evaluations. Results suggest that identity recognition predicts lesser feelings of anger, and greater identity choice predicts greater happiness for Hispanic or Latino individuals.</p> <p>Best, Chassidie -- <em>Chassidie Liu </em> <em>University of California, Santa Barbara -- Class of 2021 </em> Psychological & Brain Sciences, B.S. | Educational Studies Minor</p>
