Cultural Diversity in Advertising and Representing Different Visions of America

Our research explores how consumers with differing visions of America and its values evaluate cultural diversity in advertising. Consumers who support America’s dominant ideology more negatively evaluate ads with cultural diversity. This reverses when ads depict other cultures as loving America, or when ads sell American brands to other countries.
