DGALA had the great honor to support the research of Olivia Goodwin ’21 this year. Olivia will now be presenting their interesting and important thesis research to the DGALA community on July 13th, 7-8pm EST. Join us by registering here.
Olivia shares more information about their thesis:
My thesis is a mixed methods approach, which explores:
- how LGBTQ+ Dartmouth undergraduate students have changed their use of support networks during the COVID-19 pandemic,
- the differences between students by how their environment impacted their experiences with stress, and
- the differences of stressors between students of marginalized sexual orientations and marginalized gender identities.
I am specifically studying the experiences of LGBTQ+ students’ potential homotransphobic-specific stressors that quarantine imposed on some. I hope that this project becomes part of Dartmouth’s history as a record of students’ experiences during COVID-19.
