An understanding of the experience of growing up multiracial (having parents of two or more different racial backgrounds).
The student will be trained to code qualitative interview data and spend the semester assisting in the coding process and becoming familiar with the multiracial literature. This will involve spending 6 or 9 hours a week in the research lab where the coding software is available. Compensation will be provided in the form of research credits (2 credits for a weekly commitment of 6 hours, 3 credits for 9). The interview data comes from interviews conducted with multiracial college students who shared their experiences of how their parents talked to them about race and ethnicity growing up. The purpose of the project is to understand the messages that parents provide to their multiracial children about race and ethnicity and determine which messages promote positive development for multiracial youth. The research assistant will gain valuable research experience and receive mentorship around being a competitive applicant for social science graduate programs.
