He plans to immerse himself in research, and theory development that will help to inform his work for his Doctoral degree. His current research interests include race, resistance, and exploring how the socialization process differs for individuals based on the intersection of their identities. Webb’s recent thesis research focuses on how parents’ from different backgrounds justify their children’s involvement in extra-curricular activities, and why this is an important part of the socialization process for these parents. He hopes to develop a plan to study systematically, the everyday forms of resistance African Americans perform in response to their position in the United States racial hierarchy.
