Beschrijving Unequals

This book presents the latest research on status generalization in a variety of settings, examining new interventions for its negative effects. Drawing from research on status processes in sociology, social psychology, education, organizations, mental health, and other fields, the book connects to several bodies of research that include stigma and stereotyping, exchange and power, and organizations. The first part of the book establishes the foundations and recent
developments. Next, the book delves into elaborations, variants, and interrelations. Throughout, the book illustrates how status processes are evident in settings like school classrooms and others, where interventions can improve interaction and participation between advantaged and disadvantaged
students, genders, organizational positions, races, other dynamics that may be impacted by social status and expectation. The book concludes with chapters on applications and interventions to reduce unwanted inequalities in social interactions and institutions.

With its balanced, multidisciplinary approach to the challenges of social hierarchies and deep-rooted expectations, Unequals is an essential volume for all academic and scholarly readers interested in status processes and inequalities in our social lives.
