WHAT WE DO

our research

The Development of Identities and Cultural Environments (DICE) lab conducts research on the development of identities and intersectionality among children and adolescents in diverse cultural environments. Our various projects explore research-related questions such as:

“How do children understand what it means to be White, to be a boy, to be a Black girl? How do adolescents make sense of racial and gender stereotypes, and can we help them to resist or challenge these stereotypes? What are the consequences of youth identities for their psychosocial outcomes and academic pathways?”

DICE is currently conducting multiple research projects that investigate identity development and intersectionality in school settings. Please, click below to learn more about current projects!
