Nicholas Fraser

Canadian Studies Sproul Fellow Nicholas A. R. Fraser will discuss some of his own research that examines bias within Canadian judicial procedures against religious minorities. Using his own experimental data, Dr. Fraser will use the example of courtroom oaths as a window into how Canadian cultural expectations can subtly affect an immigrant's experience of "integration."
