Our research group at Clark (the RICC group – Research on Collective Victimization and Oppression) consists of several doctoral students and undergraduate students working on various research projects related to intergroup relations in the context of collective violence and its aftermath. The projects that undergraduate students this coming academic year (2020/21) can join include: an analysis of video testimonies from Holocaust survivors who engaged in resistance, or q-methodology studies in the field or online (depending on how the pandemic develops) among several different communities (Koreans, Hungarians, Kurds in the U.S. or Europe, African Americans, Jewish Americans) examining how people view and understand their group’s experiences of collective victimization. Various other projects with my graduate students might be added over the course of the year.
Students in our research group learn to work with multiple methods and data sources (thematic analysis and content analysis of interviews and oral testimonies or other text, surveys and experiments online or in the field, archival data), across different cultural contexts and with sensitivity to the social, political and historical context in question, and among community members.
Undergraduate students who want to join the research group can do so by enrolling for my research course, Psyc225, and/or the Capstone seminar (Psyc 292) that follows.
