Feminist Social Psychologies: International Perspectives Summary
This wide-ranging international collection provides a showcase for the richness and diversity of contemporary research in feminist social psychology. Including contributions from leading feminist social psychologists in the UK, continental Europe, North America and Australasia, it reviews the growth and development of the field over the last ten years, highlights theoretical and methodological advances, and looks forward to its future within - and beyond - the academy. Contributing authors utilise a wide variety of theoretical frameworks (ranging from feminist empiricism through social constructionism to psychoanalysis) to examine key feminist topics, such as sexual violence, pornography, femininity and beauty, emotion, social class, and sameness/difference. They also demonstrate the use of a broad range of quantitative and qualitative methods in feminist research. These include: questionnaires and rating scales, voice-relational methods, discourse analysis, memory work, biography, focus groups, Q-methodology, and meta-analysis. The eclecticism of this book makes it an ideal teaching text for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on social psychology, psychology of women/feminist psychology, gender issues, critical psychology, and research methods. It will also be of value on other social science courses and in a multidisciplinary women's studies context.
