Soc 320 Research Opportunity, Spring 2024: Transcription Assistant for Interviews About Sexual Harassment and Flirtation


Term: Spring 2024 (Soc 320, Section 136)
Status: OPEN
Contact: Please contact Chloe Hart chloe.hart@wisc.edu to apply for this position. See details below. It is available for 2 credits.
Description: How have large societal shifts like the #MeToo movement and the Covid-19 pandemic shifted Americans’ views toward appropriate sexual behavior? I take up these questions in two separate interview-based research projects. One examines how restaurant workers understand their companies’ cultures toward sexual harassment; the second examines how young Americans believe romantic/sexual interest should be expressed.
Duties: I use an imperfect transcription service to transcribe interviews. I am seeking an undergraduate assistant to listen to pre-recorded interviews and edit mistakes out of interview transcripts.
Requirements: The research assistant should:

  • Have a good command of spoken and written English.
  • Feel comfortable listening to interviews that cover sexual content and/or sexual violence.
  • Have strong time management skills: able to reliably submit weekly tasks on top of other ongoing obligations.

To Apply: Please contact Chloe Hart at chloe.hart@wisc.edu. Applicants should submit a resume and a short paragraph indicating why they are interested and well-suited for the research opportunity. Available for 2 credits.
