PROF. ALICIA D. SIMMONS
I'm a social psychologist focused on the intersections of media, race, and politics. I study how the American news media shapes audience members' racial attitudes and public policy preferences, and how public opinion ultimately shapes the direction of the nation. My research uses quantitative and qualitative methods, including surveys, experiments, and content analysis.
I teach the following courses at Colgate University: Introduction to Sociology, Media Effects, Media and Politics, Black Communities, Race and Crime, and Social Deviance.
