A study being conducted by a doctoral student of Counseling Psychology at Indiana University under the training of Dr. Joel Wong is recruiting survey respondents to better understand how gendered racism might uniquely affect Asian American men. The student running the study — Tao Liu — has asked that I help publicize this work on the blog, in hopes of reaching out to a broad range of study participants.

I think this study — which I confirmed is registered with Indiana University – Bloomington’s Institutional Board (IRB #1503060816) — is very important. Our community’s nuanced relationship with racism and gender identity impacts our self-identity, and even contributes to the heightened prevalence of stress, anxiety and depression within our community. Yet, the experiences of Asian American men (and women) with regard to race and gender remain woefully understudied and under-appreciated in academic research.

This study offers a necessary opportunity to explore and understand the complex self-identity of Asian American men. As such, I strongly encourage any readers who think they fit the demographics of the study’s desired recruits to participate.

Please see the full  recruiting notice after the jump.

I am a doctoral student in counseling psychology at Indiana University Bloomington. I am currently conducting a study on Asian American men’s experiences of discrimination. This is an anonymous survey that investigates Asian American men’s experiences of discrimination based on both of their gender and race. This study has been approved by the Institutional Board at IU Bloomington (IRB# 1503060816), and results will be used to develop scales that measure Asian American men’s experiences of gendered racism. To be eligible for the study, you have to be an Asian American male at the age of 18 or older, either born in the U.S. or immigrated into U.S. before age 10. If you are interested, please complete the following online survey regarding your experiences of discrimination and understanding of stereotypes of Asian American men.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at liu323@indiana.edu or my dissertation advisor Dr. Joel Wong at joelwong@indiana.edu.
