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 collective violence, oppression, and its aftermath. Topics include, but are not limited to, questions such as how people make sense of their group’s oppression in different ways, how this affects psychological well-being and intergroup relations as well as resistance, how group-based power is perceived among oppressed groups, and the psychology of resistance in violent, repressive contexts.
Students in our research group 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.
