I have been in contact with a number of university faculty and graduate
students who are doing work in the area of stereotype threat and its
affects on academic achievement. It seems that many graduate students and
other researchers are becoming interested in this area, but as it is
relatively new, the usual published resources are not a very satisfactory
source of information.

I have two requests for the members of this listserv:
1) Please let me know if you are aware of electronic or other forums
where stereotype threat is being discussed
2) Please let me know if you or others you are aware of are working
in this area, so that we can begin to figure out better ways to communicate
about it. (I would be happy to begin to compile lists, etc.)

Thanks very much in advance for any information you can provide.
