Daniel Herda awarded a Dissertation-Year Fellowship for 2012-2013

Daniel Herda has received a UC Davis Dissertation Fellowship for his research on racial discrimination experiences. The first of his three studies examines the degree to which such hostile interracial encounters can engender negative attitudes among reported victims. The second focuses on how neighborhood racial composition influences the likelihood of experiencing discrimination among young respondents. The final study examines the mental health and behavioral consequences of adolescents' discrimination fears and parents' discrimination experiences to determine whether discrimination can be detrimental even in the absence of actual experience.
