Ideology and Intergroup Violence Lab (IIVL)

The Ideology and Intergroup Violence Lab at Clark University investigates the ideological foundations of violence at multiple levels of analysis (e.g., the individual and society), while also identifying ways to reduce violence and discrimination. We explore the complex dynamics of ideology and violence across a variety of intergroup relations, including gender, race, nationality, and sexual orientation.

UNDERGRADUATES

Want to join the lab? Undergraduates who wish work with me on research projects should complete the application and email it to me.

Research assistants can register for research credit through PSYC210: Research on Ideology and Violence, requiring an average of 10 hours per week. Tasks typically include literature reviews, data collection, data analysis, development of research materials, and professional development.

Our weekly lab meeting will be a mixture of reviewing lab activities, professional development, and discussion of readings. All students should read social dominance theory as background for the research we conduct in the lab.
