Belonging and Social Identities Lab


Welcome to the Belonging and Social Identities Lab!

The Belonging and Social Identities Lab (BASIL) group, conducted by Dr. AnalĂ­a Albuja at Northeastern University, investigates how multiple social identities (e.g., biracial, bicultural identities) are lived and perceived in a society that views social categories as distinct and static.

Specifically, the lab studies

1) the identity experiences of people who hold multiple identities, and

2) how people who hold multiple (or otherwise stigmatized) identities are perceived by others

The lab uses a broad range of methodologies including experimental, physiological, behavioral, longitudinal, and developmental approaches, as well as secondary analysis of large data sets.
