Mixed race’ parents’ identification of their children

I recently took part in research by Miri Song from, University of Kent, which is exploring how mixed race parents racially identify and raise their own children. I really enjoyed the experience. More participants are needed, so if you would like to take part, please contact me.

Contemporary Britain is witnessing some significant changes to its population – namely the growth of both interracial relationships and of ‘mixed race’ individuals.

While there has been growing research on mixed race children and young people in Britain, very little is still known about how mixed race parents racially identify and raise their own children. How do mixed race parents identify themselves and is a mixed race identity something that such parents wish to transmit to their children? Just to be clear, this research focuses on individuals who are of mixed parentage themselves and who are parents.

If you consider yourself ‘mixed race’ and you are a parent, aged 25 to 55, who was raised in the United Kingdom, please contact MiriSong. Miri Song (ams@kent.ac.uk) 01227 827042 (office) or 07972172907 (mobile)  http://kent.academia.edu/MiriSong

Research participants will be asked to complete a brief online survey, which will be followed by an interview.
