Leading Edge Research

The remainder of this chapter considers two areas of research which illustrate some of the above points, build on the history of critical engagement, and point towards future directions in prejudice research. The first looks at race talk by acting on the suggestion of Hanson-Easey and Augoustinos (2011) that the language of the targets of racism be considered rather than the current emphasis on the talk of perpetrators. Pack, Tuffin, and Lyons (2015a, 2015b, 2016)) looked at Maori as the targets of racism in New Zealand and considered their analyses of why racism takes place, how they manage racism, and suggestions for reducing racism. The second area is more controversial and considers studies (Clark & Tuffin, 2015; Tuffin & Clark, 2016) which recalibrate prejudice and discrimination and provide an insider’s view of the psychology of these matters. Located within the broad social psychology of living with others and preferred housemates, this work offers a reframing of discrimination as not necessarily involving negative judgements. In asking ‘who would you share a home with?’ these studies encouraged talk about the intimacies of domestic sharing and the preferences, prejudices, and necessary discriminations that take place when considering that question.
