Svetlana is a doctoral candidate in developmental psychology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She is also a visiting instructor at the Social Science and Cultural Studies Department at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, where she teaches courses in psychology. Prior to joining the Pratt Institute faculty in 2014, Svetlana had worked for 3 years as a teaching fellow at the Psychology Department at Hunter College, New York. Svetlana received her undergraduate and master’s degree at University of Belgrade, Serbia. She has a rich international experience in youth civic engagement
work, which substantially informed her research interests.
Svetlana worked for three years as a writing fellow at Bronx Community College, where this project took place. She worked for the Writing-Across-the-Curriculum (WAC) program, which promotes writing as
a tool to support students’ engagement, critical thinking, expression,
and knowledge acquisition in all fields of study. Some of Svetlana’s previous research explored psychosocial characteristics of development-inhibiting and development-promoting environments
in lives of the inner-city youth. She also studied the developmental potential of community youth organizations. Svetlana’s current research explores the ways in which socioeconomic background informs young people’s sense-making about fairness of the peers
and authority figures in their lives.
