Saul Kassin is Professor of Psychology at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Born and raised in New York City, he graduated from Brooklyn College. After receiving his Ph.D. in personality and social psychology from the University of Connecticut, he spent one year at the University of Kansas and two years at Purdue University. In 1984, he was awarded a prestigious U.S. Supreme Court Judicial Fellowship, and in 1985 he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Psychology and Law Program at Stanford University. Kassin is author of the textbook PSYCHOLOGY (now in its fourth edition) and has coauthored or edited a number of scholarly books, including DEVELOPMENTAL SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY, THE PSYCHOLOGY OF EVIDENCE AND TRIAL PROCEDURE, and THE AMERICAN JURY ON TRIAL. His research interests are in social perception and influence, and their applications to police interrogations and confessions, eyewitness testimony, jury decision-making, and other aspects of law.

Steven Fein is Professor of Psychology at Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts. Born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey, he received his A.B. from Princeton University and his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Michigan. He has been teaching at Williams College since 1991, with time spent teaching at Stanford University in 1999. His edited books include EMOTION: INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES, READINGS IN SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY: THE ART OF SCIENCE AND RESEARCH, MOTIVATED SOCIAL PERCEPTION: THE ONTARIO SYMPOSIUM, and GENDER AND AGGRESSION: INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES.

Hazel Rose Markus is the Davis-Brack Professor in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. She also co-directs the Stanford Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. Before moving to Stanford in 1994, she was a professor at the University of Michigan, where she received her Ph.D. The focus of her work is the sociological shaping of mind and self. Born in England of English parents and raised in San Diego, California, she has been persistently fascinated by how nation of origin, region of the country, gender, ethnicity, race, religion, and social class shape self and identity. With her colleague Shinobu Kitayama at the University of Michigan, she has pioneered the experimental study of how culture and self influence one another. Markus was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1994 and is a Fellow of APS, APA, and Division 8. Some of her recent co-edited books include CULTURE AND EMOTION: EMPIRICAL STUDIES OF MUTUAL INFLUENCE, ENGAGING CULTURAL DIFFERENCES: THE MULTICULTURAL CHALLENGE IN LIBERAL DEMOCRACIES, and JUST SCHOOLS: PURSUING EQUAL EDUCATION IN SOCIETIES OF DIFFERENCE.
