Mary Lee Hummert
Dr. Hummert studies the social cognitive processes linking age stereotypes and communication. Her research has been supported with funding from the National Institute on Aging/National Institutes of Health. Dr. Hummert’s research examines the structure of age stereotypes held by adults across the lifespan and how age stereotypes influence intergenerational communication. Her research has also considered the extent to which stereotypes and age identity operate outside conscious awareness (i.e., implicitly) to affect perceptions and behavior. Recent work includes a consideration of the ways in which age stereotypes and related communication practices emerge in and affect family relationships.
