All Stories

We are looking for student volunteers to participate in our in-person study, examining the effects reading different passages has on your perception of others.

Participation will involve attending a 30-minute research session in Lentz Hall, where you will be asked to read a short story and answer a series of questions about your perceptions of the story and others. You can earn a $5 gift card to Starbucks or Amazon for your participation.

If you are interested in participating, please send an email to or Professor Kateryna Sylaska at with “Reading Study” in the subject.

This study was approved by the Carthage IRB (Protocol # 1827412-3 ).
