The research team presented overviews of recent and emerging findings from the Media & Identity Project, a mixed-method online survey study of over 2,300 young people aged 12-25 in 47 states with 34 follow-up interviews. The project examined the role of televised media, social media, and civic engagement in influencing how young people form their racial, ethnic, cultural, gender, sexual orientation, and political identities. Topics of discussion during the seminar included a range of risk and resilience findings related to social media use, from cyber harassment to building community and social capital.

Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D. is a research scientist with Wellesley Centers for Women and was the principal investigator of the Media & Identity Project. Her work is centered on positive youth development, including innovative electronic methods of identifying hard-to-reach vulnerable populations and how media and social networking communities influence adolescent risk or resiliency.

Amanda Richer, M.A. is a research associate at the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST), a Wellesley Centers for Women action program. She is currently involved in a number of projects on after school assessment aimed at understanding youth’s experiences, attitudes, beliefs, and future expectations. Budnampet Ramanudom (Class of 2018) is the Linda Coyne Lloyd Intern at WCW; Huiying Bernice Chan is in her third year interning with Charmaraman and will graduate in May 2016.
