About our Ongoing Projects

Our research focuses on how societal structures and attitudes shape identity development and growth for members of marginalized groups.  We are currently engaged in a number of projects examining:

Marginalized Identities: Populations that are stigmatized, oppressed, and generally underrepresented in social stata.

Atheism and Irreligiosity: Focus on the the broad spectrum of the philosophies of life and living.

Body Image:
Muscularity, masculinity, body objectificiation, and disordered eating among racial and ethnic minority groups and LGBTQ people.

Activism and Social Justice:
Although prevalent in all of our research, certain projects highlight the social impact of psychological research.
