A Program of Research on the Role of Race in Adolescent Academic and Social Life Online
May 10 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm
Drawing on developmental theories of race, this presentation will synthesize two decades of research on the messages adolescents send and receive about race online. From articles on the contributions of one’s racial-ethnic group to viral videos of police killings, it outlines how engagement with race-related content and discussions online impacts academic, behavioral and mental health outcomes.
