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:

Please pick only one of the following online surveys to complete:

General Survey about Media & Identity
Media & Race, culture, and gender
Media & Social issues

Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D., was a panelist in the webinar, "Using Technology to Improve the Health of Underserved Populations," which looked at ways modern digital and information technology can help address health disparities among ethnic minority groups. View webinar.
