We are excited to share news about our forthcoming paper, co-authored with Kenneth Tan https://faculty.smu.edu.sg/profile/kenneth-tan-1696 in Social Cognition on “Tugging at Their Heartstrings: Partner’s Knowledge of Affective Meta-Bases Predicts Use of Emotional Advocacies in Close Relationships.” This work suggests that in the context of romantic relationships, a persuader is more likely to tailor their influence attempts by using emotional appeals when their perception of their partner (the intended message recipient) is validated by their partner’s self-perception.

We are excited to share news about our forthcoming paper in Journal of Social Issues on “Effects of living arrangements on well-being, perceived conflict, and intergroup attitudes for local and international students: Results from a field intervention”!
This work examines the causal effects of separating, clustering, and integrating international and local students by randomly assigning them to various living arrangements. The results suggest that efforts to improve well-being and intergroup relations via the social ecology of host and migrant residents should provide opportunities for integration over separation or even enclaves.
