Ogilvie’s research at CASBS focuses on the language, cultural norms, and values of those born during and after the mid-1990s, an age group that has been called “Generation Z” or the “iGeneration”. The iGen Project is hosted by CASBS and funded by the Knight Foundation. Its interdisciplinary research team comprises Ogilvie, Roberta Katz, Linda Woodhead, and Jane Shaw. Ogilvie was a Berggruen fellow at CASBS in 2017-18.
