Abstract: Linda Tropp is associate professor of Psychology and director of the Psychology of Peace and Violence Program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her research concerns how members of different groups approach and experience contact with each other, and how group differences in power or status affect views of and expectations for cross-group relations. Tropp has received the Allport Intergroup Relations Prize from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues for her research on intergroup contact, the Erik Erikson Early Career Award for distinguished research contributions from the International Society of Political Psychology, and the McKeachie Early Career Teaching Award from the Society for the Teaching of Psychology. Tropp has been engaged in many efforts to integrate contributions from researchers and practitioners to improve intergroup relations. She has collaborated with national organizations to present social science evidence in Supreme Court cases on racial desegregation, worked on state initiatives designed to improve interracial relations in schools, and she has partnered with varied non-governmental organizations to evaluate applied programs designed to reduce racial and ethnic conflict. Tropp is co-editor of Improving Intergroup Relations: Building on the Legacy of Thomas F. Pettigrew (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008). She has also co-edited a volume of the Journal of Social Issues concerning the integration of research and practice in intergroup relations (2006). Tropp has been a visiting scholar at the Institute for Personality and Social Research at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), the Kurt Lewin Institute (Netherlands), the Marburg Center for Conflict Studies (Germany) and the International Graduate College on Conflict and Cooperation (Germany, UK, and Belgium), where she has taught seminars and workshops on prejudice reduction and intervention. She is also a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Society of Experimental Social Psychology, and the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues and currently serves on the editorial boards of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and Group Processes and Intergroup Relations.
