I am a doctoral candidate in the Student Affairs Concentration in the Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education at the University of Maryland, and I write to solicit nominations of participants for my dissertation study. The purpose of my study is to explore the role and salience of race to Asian American college students’ identities and to explore the intersections of race with other social identities. I hope to learn how Asian Americans see themselves as racial beings and how they make meaning of their multiple and intersecting social identities.
I am seeking current Asian American undergraduate students who have spent some time thinking about their race, ethnicity, and/or other dimensions of their identity (e.g., gender, sexual orientation, ability status, religion, socioeconomic status). I am seeking participants who represent the range of diversity within the Asian American community in terms of ethnicity and other social identity dimensions (such as ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, ability status, and immigrant generation status), but the most important criteria are that they have thought about their race and would be willing to engage in reflective conversations with me about their identity. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.
If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org by June 5
