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.
