Dr. Julia Higdon
Program Coordinator ECSP and CMEI
Julia's research focuses on civic attitudes among adolescents, particularly attitudes toward minority groups. She's broadly interested in issues of measurement, and in the development of scales that would be useful measures of civic knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Her qualifying paper, "National identity, European identity, and attitudes toward migration and immigration among adolescents" was passed with distinction in September 2013. She provides support to the Early Career Scholars Program in New Civics.
