Status Attainment across Contexts
Do the same people always attain social status, or is their status attainment contingent upon specific qualities of the social context? My dissertation examines how situational characteristics moderate the effect of stable individual differences on status attainment. This project aims to provide a more nuanced picture of how status attainment processes unfold when small groups perform different types of tasks.
