Forschungs- und Arbeitsschwerpunkte

Dr. Viandens Forschung thematisiert Heterogenität und Inklusion. Im speziellen Vordergrund stehen hier Konzepte der Maskulinität in der Hochschule, soziale Gerechtigkeit, und das Verantwortungsbewusstsein von Menschen mit mehreren sozialen Privilegien für sozialen Wandel. Zu diesem Thema wird 2019 bei Routledge das Buch White Men on Campus: Transforming Learning about Privilege, Diversity, and Responsibility for Social Change erscheinen. Die Grundlage für das Buch ist das Straight White College Men Project, eine qualitative Studie mit fast 200 Studierenden an 13 Hochschulen in fast allen Regionen der USA, die Dr. Vianden und sein Forschungsteam von 2014 bis 2016 durchführte. Hierzu sind zur Zeit drei Veröffentlichungen erhältlich.

Außerdem erforscht Dr. Vianden die Beziehung zwischen Studierenden und ihren Hochschulen. Dabei im Vordergrund stehen Modelle des Studienerfolgs, der Studierendenzufriedenheit, und der Hochschulbindung. Hierzu veröffentlichte Dr. Vianden sechs referierte Artikel in U.S. amerikanischen und europäischen Zeitschriften.
