WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Have you considered using a secondary dataset instead of collecting your own information but didn’t know what was available and whether it contained variables of interest?  Data collection for individual research projects can be time-consuming, expensive, and may result in sample sizes that are both too small for rigorous statistical analysis and raise issues around generalizability.  

Presenters:

Diane Hughes, Ph.D., Professor, Psychology and Co-Director, Center for Research on Culture, Development and Education at New York University

Description:

In the wake of multiple recent shootings of unarmed ethnic minority teens, substantial media attention has been directed toward discussions of how parents of color should prepare children for the realities of racism and discrimination. For the past 20 years, Dr. Hughes’ scholarship has focused on understanding how children learn (and parents teach) about race, including lessons about racial discrimination. How do conversations take place in families? What is communicated?
