Tonight our Distinguished Speaker is Professor Gregory Elliott!

Gregory Elliott, Professor of Sociology

Dr Elliott is a social  psychologist whose areas of teaching and research address in various ways two   fundamental questions of human concern: "Who am I?" and "Where   do I fit in?" In his research, he investigates the self-concept, its   development in youth and its effects on behavior; issues of self and social   integration, including the individual and community, alienation, and   civility; and the personal consequences of experiencing the social structure. 


Gregory C. Elliott received his   Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1977. He is   currently associate professor of Sociology at Brown University. Previously,   he was assistant professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland,   College Park. His research interests focus on the social development of the   individual and the problem of integrating the self into society. In   particular, he currently researches the concept of mattering (the extent to   which one makes a difference in the lives of others) and its motivational   impact on behavior. A second area of research involves the causes and   consequences of child maltreatment. His methodological expertise includes the   General Linear Model, logistic regression, structural equation models, index   construction, and issues of reliability and validity in measurement.
