This seminar will address key themes in contemporary scholarship on the psychology of women and gender. Throughout, we will consider we will consider how gender intersects with race, class, sexuality, and other social dimensions.

Sample topics include: women's mental health; sex roles, stereotypes, and discrimination; women's development across the lifespan; gender and political participation; and violence against women. We will particularly examine when and how feminist psychologists use feminist theory to frame research questions and inform their use of empirical methods.

Effort will be made to link topics covered in this course with the content of related undergraduate courses (e.g., Psychology of Women; Gender and the Individual), to prepare graduate students for future teaching assignments.
