Subject: Call for Participants!! Asian International Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Race, Racialization, Racism, and Neo-racism Description: Hello! I’m a fourth-year doctoral candidate in the Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy program at the University of Maryland. I'm currently conducting my dissertation research on Asian international students’ perceptions and experiences of race, racialization, racism, and neo-racism and calling for participants who are (1) an undergraduate or graduate student who self-identifies as an international student from Asia; (2) enrolled at UMD during the year 2018 and later; (3) enrolled at UMD for at least 6-9 months; and (4) are of 18 years or older at the time of the study. To determine eligibility, you’ll be invited to complete a brief eligibility survey (5-10 minutes) first. For those who are not eligible, your data will be deleted immediately and will not be used for research. If you meet the eligibility, you’ll be invited to participate in two phases of the study: In phase I, I’ll join you in 3-4 events, gatherings, workshops, seminars, and/or classes in your programs, departments, colleges, on-campus and/or off campus and conduct observation of these events during Fall 2022 semester. As a part of observation, I’d also like to engage in informal interviews/dialogues with you. The expected time commitment for the observations is around 60-90 minutes per observation. In phase II, I’ll conduct two-rounds of one-one-on in-person interviews with you regarding your perceptions and experiences of race, racialization, racism, and neo-racism during Winter and Spring 2023 semesters. Each interview will last between 60-90 minutes, will be conducted at a mutually agreeable time and in a mutually agreeable place on campus, and will be optionally audio-recorded upon your consent. You’ll receive a $30 e-gift card via email within 24 hours upon completing each interview. If you are interested in participating in this study, please complete the eligibility survey at https://umdsurvey.umd.edu/jfe/form/SV_9GjTFUQMw9JZpci. Upon confirming your interest in participation and eligibility, I’ll send you additional information on the study, including study purpose, procedures, potential risks and discomfort, confidentiality, and eliciting your informed consent to participate in the study. I’m happy to answer any questions and/or concerns you may have before you make the final decision to participate in the study.
