Dr. Judith Langlois

Welcome to the Langlois Social Development Lab at The University of Texas at Austin. As part of the Children’s Research Lab, our research is focused on children's social development, with particular emphasis on the origins of social stereotypes. The stereotype we focus on concerns facial attractiveness because it is less well studied and understood than gender or racial stereotypes and because it can be a window through which we might better understand other stereotypes. Because we are interested in the development of stereotypes, we typically study infants and young children. Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to contact us with any questions you have regarding the lab, or our research.
