Original research findings compiled by nine students were presented at the 46th annual meeting of the Society for Cross-Cultural Research, held March 1-4 in New Orleans, La.

Jaqlyn Colangelo (senior, Theatre and Dance, Rome, N.Y.), Elayna Kinney (junior, Psychology, Java Village), Taylor Kozuch (senior, Psychology, Lakewood), Morganne Madonia (senior, Psychology, Pittsford), Ernesto "Tito" Mercado Irizarry (senior, Interdisciplinary Studies/Women and Gender Studies, Alden) and Brooke Park (senior, Psychology, Angola) presented four related research projects in the symposium, "Unknowability and otherness in potential sexual partners in the LGBTQ+ community.”

Also serving as co-authors of the projects were Ariel Gelfand (senior, Music/Music Therapy, Fredonia), Saphire Jones (senior, Psychology, Central Bridge) and Amanda Schelemanow (senior, Psychology, Byron). All were mentored by Dr. Darrin Rogers of the Department of Psychology.

The symposium was well received by an audience of anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists and other professionals, two of whom later invited the students to present the final results of their research in Athens, Greece, in 2018.

Student travel to the conference was supported by the Office of Student Creative Activity and Research. The research ̶  with updated data and analyses ̶  will be presented at the Office of Student Creativity and Research (OSCAR) Expo and the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference, both being held in April at Fredonia.

The Society for Cross-Cultural Research is multi-disciplinary organization whose members share a common devotion to conduct cross-cultural research. It is comprised of professionals and students in the social science fields of psychology, anthropology and sociology and related fields of education, family studies, social work, human development, communications, ethnic studies and business.
