Project Description: 

The Latinx Identity Project examines how racial experiences shape Latinx racial, ethnic and national identities. We are looking for undergraduate research assistants who are interested in questions of race and belonging and want to gain research experience. Duties include recruiting, conducting, and coding interviews with Latinx youth. In addition to research credits, research assistants will gain valuable research skills and experience under the mentorship of Professor Nilda Flores-Gonzalez (Sociology) and PhD student Annabelle Atkin (Family and Human Development). Research assistants should be able to dedicate time to the project starting in the Fall 2018 semester (for training) and through the end of the Spring 2019 semester.

Application Instructions and Contact Info:
