Ethnic Identity Development in a Changing World: Rich Lee, May 15, 2014
Ethnic Identity Development in a Changing World:
New Research Directions & Conversations Across Disciplines
Panel discussion by Tiffany Yip, PhD (Fordham University) and Eleanor Seaton, PhD (UNC-Chapel Hill).
Moderated by Rich Lee, Psychology, U of M.
What constitutes an ethnic identity and how does it exactly develop? Two leading scholars in the field will discuss a new NSF-funded interdisciplinary collaborative that examines new conceptualizations of ethnic identity and the contexts through which ethnic identity develops.
Following the presentation, there will be a discussion with faculty and graduate students from the humanities and behavioral/social sciences to answer the question: How can humanities and behavioral/social science scholars work collaboratively to better understand the influence of diaspora and global migration, context and location, and phenomenological ecology on the identity development of indigenous, immigrant and refugee people living in the U.S. Midwest?
Funding provided by National Science Foundation and the IAS/Mellon Foundation’s “Humanities Without Walls” Global Midwest Project. This discussion occurred Thursday, May 15, 2014, at 4:00pm in Crosby Seminar Room, Northrop.
