Lynn H. Collins,
Gender Research Group
gender research group’s purpose is to offer opportunities for undergraduate
and graduate students to become involved in psychological research. It is
a good place to develop skills, get support for your own research, or learn
more about gender issues. In addition, students can hear about the next
step in the professional development from students who are already there
or share their knowledge with others. It meets in the Food Court during
the dinner hour, so students can get something to eat while we discuss the
projects. Research ideas can come from your real life questions and experiences.
Questions asked by students in the group have included:
Wednesdays, 5:00 – 6:00 PM
in the Food Court, Student Union
- Do men and women enjoy different aspects of
- Do attractive models in advertisements lower
the self-esteem of men and/or women readers?
- Can you predict the future of a relationship
from what the woman/man says about her/his feelings?
- Is assertiveness really a social skill?
- Are the behaviors of characters in "slasher"
films related to their fates in the movies? Is the relationship between
specific behaviors and fates different for male and female characters?
- Are women who follow "The Rules" really
more successful in relationships
completed by group members may even be presented at university local,
regional, or even national conferences! Such activities are valuable additions
to your resume or graduate school applications! Please feel free to drop
by the table. I hope to see you there!
The group meets every Wednesday
at 5:00 PM in the Food Court. We hope that you will join us!
