Assimilationism, colorblindness, multiculturalism, and multiculturalism in the Russian context
On November 9 Dmirty Grigoryev took part in the "Culture matters" research seminar with the report on "Assimilationism, colorblindness, multiculturalism, and multiculturalism in the Russian context".
This study examined the relationships between the intergroup ideologies (assimilationism, ethnic color blindness, multiculturalism, polyculturalism) and the prejudices of Russians towards Chechens, Byelorussians, Uzbeks and Chinese, and generalized prejudices. In order to take into account the specific context of intergroup relations in Russia, it was considered the experience of intergroup interaction with these ethnic groups (frequency and positivity of intergroup contacts, positive intergroup emotions) that is potentially related to prejudice and intergroup tension and perceived ethnic density.
The results obtained were explained in the context of the perceived cultural distance and the existing stereotypes in relation to the ethnic groups under consideration, which, according to the assessment of the two components of stereotype content model by S. Fiske (warm and competence), are meaningfully different.
