Steven J. Spencer is an assistant professor and chair of the social psychology division at the University of Waterloo. He teaches popular classes in Social Psychology and Social Cognition and is known for his lively lectures and engaging classroom demonstrations. Dr. Spencer also maintains an active research program that investigates self-image maintenance processes, motivated social perception, and stereotyping. In particular, he has examined how threats to the self-concept can lead people to stereotype others, and how being stereotyped by others can threaten people and undermine their performance on academic tasks. His work has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology. In his spare time he plays on an intramural basketball team organized by the graduate students in social psychology at the University of Waterloo, and enjoys spending time with his family. Steven and Shelley Spencer are parents of two children, a daughter and a son.
