Stephen Maynard Caliendo, North Central College professor of political science and Ruge Fellow, coauthored and presented a paper titled “Effects of Intergroup Language on Eye-tracking and Moment-to-Moment Responses in Race-based Political Messages” at the National Conference of Black Political Scientists annual meeting in Jackson, Miss. He also presented a coauthored paper titled “Implicit Associations and In-group v. Out-group Attention: Tracking Eye-Movements During a Race-Based Political Campaign Advertisement” at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association in Chicago.

Both papers were written with longtime collaborator Dr. Charlton McIlwain, Department of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University, as well as Dr. Emily Balcetis and Yael Granot, Department of Psychology at New York University. Data was collected at the Socio-Political Communication lab at Missouri State University and the Social Perception, Action & Motivation Lab at New York University.

Caliendo continues to give lectures based on his 2014 book, “Inequality in America: Race, Poverty, and Fulfilling Democracy’s Promise,” including talks at Clarion University in Pennsylvania and College of the Canyons in California.
