Having grown up and abroad and within a politically active household, I have always had in interest in understanding the diversity of cultures and politics. As globalization increasingly comes to influence almost every sphere of state life, it is important to understand the politics of exclusion that inevitably arise in allocating both the spoils and losses that accompany integration. The way citizens are constructed amidst this process, and recognize each other as such, has been an overarching theme in my research to date.
This project seeks to test our hypothesis that a positive change in individuals’ cosmopolitan outlook should have a corresponding increase in positive attitudes toward immigration. To test this, we devise a nonequivalent groups design quasi-experiment with a control group (composed of subjects not studying abroad) and an experimental/ intervention group (study abroad participant subjects). Our experimental group has been ‘treated’ with what we assume to be the cosmopolitan-inducing effects of cross-border interaction (i.e., study abroad experience).image credit: https://joshuamcdonnell.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/hands-holding-earth.jpg
