Great Minds Lecture: The Role of Parents and Community in the Ethnic Socialization of Children

The 2018 Great Minds series ends with Dr. Christina Bobesky discussing the Role of Parents and Community in Ethnic Socialization of Children on October 30th at 7 pm.

Maintaining a connection with ethnic heritage has been linked with positive outcomes. Frequent interaction in ethnic clubs or communities fosters a cultural sense of identity and biculturalism. Such interaction has also been shown to increase parent-child agreement and success in social and academic domains. This presentation will assess parental and community-level influences on the development of ethnic identity and draw upon independent research with 414 members of the Ukrainian community in Central New York. Information about language fluency, ritualism, tradition, community organizations, and parenting beliefs will be discussed.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
