Media and Identity Study

Principal Investigators: Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D.

We invite you to be in an online research study called the Media & Identity Project.  This study is being conducted by researchers at the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College.  We are inviting individuals between the ages of 12-25 to participate. We are interested in how the use of social media, technology, and TV affects your sense of self.  The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will get a chance to enter raffle prize drawings of $25, $50, and $100.

In Summer 2014, we will post preliminary results of this study. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our mailing list for study findings:
