Indianness and its objectives: Prathna

Prathna Singh is an honours student at UKZN. Her project is a qualitative study aimed at investigating Indian university students’ notions of contact with other race groups. Indians from segregated schools, as well as those who were schooled in desegregated school contexts were included in the sample. The study was particularly concerned with the working models of contact deployed by such groups

i found the study to be very interesting, its a good methodology of looking at outergroup threat and also the inlfluence of false believes about one's or anothers group indentity on self/group cultural identity. also how these false beliefs about superior groups/cultures put pressure on inferior groups to deviate from the culture of the assumed superior group

well done prathna, ust a comment: i think its great that we are doing research on such issues that address the tensions, and difficulties that face young people at the face of globilisation. i think it will enable us to go forward

i think this is really great especially in a post-apartheid context where any discourse about the tensions between cultures/races is discouraged
