Fiske earns award for pioneering work

The Harvard University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences awarded its 2004 Centennial Award to Princeton psychologist Susan Fiske during its commencement ceremonies June 9.

Fiske, who earned a bachelor's degree and Ph.D. from Harvard, was one of four recipients of the Centennial Award, which is the highest honor awarded by the Harvard graduate school.

Harvard honored Fiske for her pioneering work in understanding cultural stereotyping, particularly regarding race and gender in the workplace. Fiske, a professor of psychology, came to Princeton in 2000 from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She has written dozens of influential papers and books, including most recently "Social Beings: A Core Motives Approach to Social Psychology" (2003).
