The Centre for the Study of Democratic citizenship presents a methods workshop by:
Prof ASHLEY JARDINA (Duke University, USA)
Measuring Racial Attitudes and Asking Sensitive Survey Question
Where and When: Thursday, April 25 from 3pm to 5pm. Room LEA429, Leacock Building, McGill University.
About: This workshop discusses the ways in which social scientists typically measure racial attitudes and racial prejudice while considering the challenges and solutions to asking sensitive questions on opinion surveys.
Ashley Jardina (Michigan PH.D. 2014) is an Assistant Professor of Political Science. Her research explores the nature of racial attitudes, the development of group identities, and the way in which these factors influence political preferences and behavior. She is primarily interested in how Americans are responding to increasing diversity, and her current project explores the conditions under which white racial identification and white consciousness among white Americans is a salient and significant predictor of policies, candidates, and attitudes toward racial and ethnic groups. She is also interested in the study of gender and politics. Her dissertation won the 2015 American Political Science Association award for the best dissertation in race and ethnic politics.
