  • Effects of Advocacy on Animal Rights Attitudes

    Beschreibung: The goal of this study would be to collect data aimed at determining optimal advocacy strategies for changing attitudes about animal rights. Several variables could be considered, including a) target (government, corporation, or individual), b) severity (violent, disruptive, or peaceful, c) method (buying, social media, production disruption), or d) focus (specific animal or industry). The student would be responsible for a literature review of animal activism, deriving an experimental design, collecting and analyzing data, and writing up the results. Duncombe, S., & Harrebye, S.

  • Ergodicity in Interpersonal Dynamics

    Beschreibung: Three interpersonal dynamics have been established across many studies in which temporal variation in warmth and dominance is examined across individuals and dyads over time: a) orthogonality, such that warmth and dominance are independent of each other, b) reciprocity, such that one person?s dominance is associated with the other?s submissiveness, and c) similarity, such that one person?s warmth is associated with the other?s warmth. However, these parameters may differ within any particular person or dyad, a pattern known as ergodicity. The tendency for individual dyads to be systematically similar or different from these general tendencies, and correlates of such differences, has not been examined. The goal of this study would be to examine ergodicity using data that have already been collected in which the interpersonal interactions of couples were coded across four types of interaction.
