ScotsCast: Presenting Research on Motivating Activism

Emily Weaver '15 and Emelie Schaefer '15, Students
Emily and Emelie discuss their research on what kind of information motivates people to get involved in the fight against human trafficking, which they conducted in Dr. Kevin Eames' research methods course and presented at the conference of the Southeastern Psychology Association.

"There’s never a boring day at Dr. Eames’ class. He really cares for his students and his jokes are funny. Aside from that, I have always been passionate about all things cross-cultural and to be able to learn about both psychology and culture in one class was a great opportunity. There were a number of things he pointed out that opened my eyes about the cultural differences that exist in the world."
