African-American Responses to Stigmatization

Fall 2011

Undergraduate researchers involved in this project used Atlas.ti to analyze interview data on African-American responses to stigmatization in collaboration with graduate RAs.  The research was 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. Student researchers finalized a book based on this data, as well as on similar data on stigmatized groups in Brazil and Israel. This involved completing reviews of the literature and helping a research team with a range of tasks.  Scholars learned Atlas.ti, assisted with data analysis, provided summaries of the literature (most on race in the US and Brazil).
