Interpersonal Communication and Race


Chantel Haughton (B.A., University of Iowa; M.A., UC Santa Barbara) is a doctoral student in the Department of Communication at UCSB. Chantel’s research focuses on the intersection of racial and ethnic stigma, chronic stress, mental health, and communication. More specifically, she aims to understand how culture impacts communication and the ways minority families can foster resilience. She is working to expand the literature regarding people of color, as their experiences have traditionally been devalued in academia.
