Research Assistant Opportunities


Dr. Paul Namaste in the High Point University Department of Sociology seeks to identify a volunteer research assistant to aid in two projects on the question of the nature of love. The research question, "What is Love?" examines how people have conceptualized the nature of love throughout history and across various cultures.


The student research assistant's role will be to participate in a library search of relevant sources from a variety of disciplines including philosophy, literature, visual arts, music, cultural studies, anthropology, psychology, sociology and gender studies. These sources will be used to prepare a grant for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). NEH sponsors a regular grant which focuses on "Enduring Questions" and is intended to sponsor the development of a new interdisciplinary course. In addition, the literature search will be the foundation for a research project of the professor's with which the student may assist; and/or the student can initiate a related project of his/her own which the faculty member will mentor. For more information or to apply, contact Dr. Paul Namaste at pnamste@highpoint.edu.
