Biography

Dr Caprice Lantz-Deaton is a Psychology Lecturer at the University of Bradford’s Faculty of Social Science, Division of Psychology. Caprice holds BSc in Sociology and an MA in Psychology both of which she completed in the US. Living in 10 different US states and three different countries (US, UK, Japan) led Caprice to develop a keen interest in cross-cultural relations and eventually the pursuit of a PhD. Her thesis looked at internationalisation and the development of intercultural competence in university students.

Caprice joined the department with a number of years of professional experience in the corporate, government, charity and higher education sectors working in diverse roles such as Assistant Director of Careers, Domestic Violence Counsellor, Research Projects Manager, Academic Coordinator for the Higher Education Academy Psychology Network, and more recently Diversity Lecturer for the Centre of Inclusion and Diversity.

Caprice’s research interests are broadly in the field of social psychology but more specifically relate to research which aims to reduce inequality, prejudice, discrimination, racism and sexism and to enhance interculturalism, cultural and intercultural competence.
