Can stereotypes about Christians really limit who pursues science? In this episode, Kim Rios from Ohio University discusses how self-concepts and group identities may change how we look at the role of religion in science. Kim tells the stories behind her article “Negative Stereotypes Cause Christians to Underperform in and Disidentify With Science.” She co-authored the article with Zhen Cheng, Rebecca Totton and Azim Shariff, which was published in the July 2015 issue of Social Psychological and Personality Science.
