Dr. Monique Fleming is the author of scholarly articles in psychology and marketing. Her research has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, Stanford University, and the University of Michigan. This research investigates basic issues in the domains of attitudes and persuasion, and social cognition, with particular focus on the effects of prejudice and social identity on evaluative processes. She also examines the implications of dual-route models of persuasion and models of bias correction for understanding group identities, judgmental biases, and juror decision-making. Questions currently being investigated include: (1) why do low-prejudiced majority-group individuals show increased thinking about persuasive messages associated with stigmatized people; and (2) what are the implications of thoughtful versus non-thoughtful processes of adopting or maintaining a social identity for group-related behavior and temporal consistency of the self-concept.
