Gerald Higginbotham researches the role of culture and identity in education and politics. Specifically, his research seeks to provide insight into (a) how history functions as important context that shapes how individuals see themselves and others and (b) how perceptions of history and its consequences are shaped by an individual’s attitudes and group memberships. Higginbotham received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from University of California, Los Angeles and holds an master's degree in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles and a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Stanford University with a minor in African & African-American Studies.
