Linda Juang: Racial-ethnic socialization

In our first episode, we talk to Linda Juang who is a professor of Inclusive Education at the University of Potsdam (Germany). Our main topic is racial-ethnic socialization, meaning how parents communicate about race and ethnicity with their children.

PAST (00:02:32): Linda describes her own path into higher education, how she was inspired to continue in academia by a lecturer of color, and how her research interests have influenced her own parenting.
PRESENT (00:12:13): We discuss the article by Hughes et al. (2008) on understanding ethnic socialization processes in ethnically diverse families. Besides parents, we discuss how schools in Germany can address issues of racism.
FUTURE (00:29:27): Linda elaborates on the future or racial-ethnic socialization research and the potential of (academic) mentors for underrepresented students in higher education.
