Dr. Michael Schmitt is an Associate Professor at Simon Fraser University. His research interests are "based on psychological perspectives that focus on self-definition at the group level, particularly social identity theory and self-categorization theory." He has studied how people respond to discrimination and group-based inequality from the perspective of both privileged and disadvantaged social groups. We will be discussing the role of heterosexual identity threats in differential support for same-sex "civil unions" v. "marriages"
