More Information
This informative Research Handbook brings together a unique combination of methodological, philosophical and theoretical perspectives to present a comprehensive overview of communication and prejudice research.

Editors Elvis Nshom and Stephen Croucher, along with expert authors from across the globe, extensively analyse prejudice and communication research, highlighting the importance of drawing distinct connections between the two. They discuss the relationship between language and bias, realistic group conflict theory, systemic inequity and #BlackLivesMatter, as well as empirical studies in communication and prejudice in non-US contexts. As the global understanding of prejudice has changed and developed, this Research Handbook emphasises the crucial need to explore prejudice and its interrelated processes in more diverse contexts, namely the ways in which we communicate and interact with one another.

This Research Handbook is a vital resource for students, academics and researchers specialising in sociology of discrimination, social psychology, cultural sociology and communication. Providing an interdisciplinary overview of communication and prejudice, this book is also beneficial for policymakers and practitioners working in domestic politics, public policy and international relations.
Critical Acclaim
‘Theoretically and methodologically sophisticated and impressively well-researched, the Research Handbook on Communication and Prejudice provides a solid body of diverse scholarship on communication, prejudice, and cultural othering. This groundbreaking collection of global perspectives, rich in case studies from various parts of the world, brings intercultural communication studies to a whole new level.’
– Julia Khrebtan-Hörhager, Colorado State University, US

‘This Research Handbook on Communication and Prejudice is a timely intervention to the reality of minority groups being discriminated against, underestimated or deprived of human qualities, personality or dignity. The contributors’ research, work and lived experience in different continents give the handbook unique depth and breadth.’
– Agnes Lucy Lando, Daystar University, Kenya, Africa
