Gniewosz, Burkhard

Burkhard Gniewosz currently works as assistant professor at the University of Wuerzburg in the department of educational research. In 2002, he received a diploma in psychology of the University on Jena, Germany. In 2005, Burkhard Gniewosz finished his dissertation with the doctoral thesis on “Intergenerational transmission and projection processes of political attitudes within family”, also at the University of Jena. From 2002 until 2010, he worked in an interdisciplinary research group on “Discrimination and Tolerance in Intergroup Relations”. The work during that time was mostly on socialization effects on adolescent political development. At the same time, his research focus opened towards contextual effects (parents, schools etc.) on adolescent’s development of beliefs, values, and attitudes in a broader sense. Recently, his major research topics are in the field of contextual influences on academic beliefs, values, and attitudes.
