    Biography

    Aida Hurtado's research focuses on the effects of subordination on social identity, the part of the self that is related to significant group memberships. She is especially interested in those group memberships (e.g., ethnicity, race, class, and gender) that are derogated in this society and are used to legitimate unequal distribution of power between groups.



    Her multidisciplinary perspective has emerged from the social psychological literature on social identity and language attitudes, the methodological literature on surveys, and feminist theory. She uses a variety of methods ranging from ethnography to survey research, which is the core of her training.



    Aída Hurtado is currently Associate Professor of Psychology, University of California, Santa Cruz.
