African-American Responses to Stigmatization

Faculty Member:  Michele Lamont

Description: The research is focused on how the repertoires of strategies for responding to stigmatization vary with group identity, the porousness of group boundaries, available cultural repertoires, and other factors. Researchers are finalizing a book based on this data, as well as on similar data on stigmatized groups in Brazil and Israel.

Work in collaboration with Professor Michele Lamont's team. This involves helping a research team conduct a range of tasks related to delivering the book (finalizing tables, editing, checking footnotes, helping with bibliography search, etc).  

Requirements: Must be a current Harvard College undergraduate.
