Overview

Morgan is an identity scholar who combines language-based theories such as affect control theory and social network analysis to examine how social identities influence social interaction and social relationships. His research has appeared in Social Psychology Quarterly, Social Networks, and Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory. His dissertation examines how social categories as features of situational and group identities influence social interactions and group-level attributions. Specifically, he examines how the gender prototypicality of identities influences the impressions resulting from a social interaction, and how peer group reputations reflect and solidify racial stereotypes pertaining to aggression during early adolescence.
