Dr. Roberts studies trends in the attitudes and behavior of everyday people living around the world, and the role of cultural globalization in shaping those trends. She is currently working on projects on: (1) the partial globalization of the acceptance of homosexuality in public opinion and national law, (2) change over time in worldwide religiosity, (3) the role of individualism in structuring attitudes across different societies, and (4) globalizing influences on the acceptance of intimate partner violence in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Dr. Roberts is also involved with a project on the legal response to the Rwandan genocide and has co-authored a book with Cambridge University Press on the historic use and evolution of anti-Semitic rhetoric in West European politics.
