DiSH grad student Daniel was recently named a recipient of the 2019-2020 Marvin Hoffenberg Fellowship in American Politics & Public Policy.
Here’s what he had to say: “This fellowship is awarded by UCLA’s Race, Ethnicity, Politics & Society (REPS) Lab and provides recipients with funding to conduct experimental research on the psychology of race, ethnicity, and/or politics. With this funding, I will be conducting an experimental study on the link between race and vegetarianism. Evidence exists to suggest that people associate vegetarianism with Whiteness — that is, they view being a vegetarian as a stereotypically White dietary behavior. In my study, I will investigate the effect of racial identity on openness to going vegetarian among Black people.”
