This three-day symposium offers a synthetic analysis of race and racism around the themes of embodied practices and habits. The symposium will involve both working papers and three public plenary talks. While implicit bias is regularly defined as an unconscious or involuntary behavior, some researchers are utilizing the language of "habit" in order to explain the development and practice of automatic racist stereotyping and discriminatory actions. This turn to the importance of habit and embodiment has recently garnered broad support from both qualitative and quantitative methods of research.
