Personal Statement

Personal Statement

Professor Chana Etengoff’s scholarship is focused on understanding how cultural, gender and sexual minority groups agentively mediate sociorelational conflicts—transforming minority stress into stress related growth. Her work is informed by a theoretical stance that human development is a constructive process embedded in relational, sociopolitical and historical contexts. Recent projects include inquiries into how Muslim emerging adults navigate difficult intergroup relations post 9/11 and how gay emerging adults from religious backgrounds mediate familial and cultural conflicts. Current lines of research are focused on understanding the mediating role of transgender vlogs and the LGBTQ Muslim Experience.

Dr. Etengoff is now co-editing a special guest issue of the Journal of Homosexuality on the LGBTQ Muslim Experience. The Call for Papers is open until April 1st 2017 and can be accessed here: http://explore.tandfonline.com/cfp/beh/jh_muslims

Before beginning her appointment at Adelphi, Dr. Etengoff served as a Term Assistant Professor and the Director of Barnard's Minority Conflict & Mediation (MCM) Lab from 2013-2017. Professor Etengoff has served as a peer reviewer for the Journal of Adolescent Research, Self and Identity, APA's Psychology of Religion and Spirituality, Journal of Homosexuality, Psychology of Men & Masculinity, Journal of GLBT Family Studies, the Journal of Lesbian Studies, and the Journal of Youth & Society. Her ongoing research project focusing on the intersection of sexual and religious identity among LGBTQ Muslims was recently awarded competitive funding by the Equality Knowledge Project Grant (Equality Research Center, Eastern Michigan University).
