1/16/2020 - Gender-Based Harrassment in Adolescence: The Importance of Macro and Micro Contexts

Gender-Based Harrassment in Adolescence: The Importance of Macro and Micro Contexts

Christia Brown flyerSpeaker: Dr. Christia Brown

Time: 11:00am Thursday, January 16, 2020

Place: Crick Conference Room, 3545 Mandler Hall

RSVP: Click here.

 Abstract: Gender-based harassment in adolescence is both prevalent and damaging. In this talk, we will discuss the ways in which early and middle adolescents harass one another on the basis of gender, gender expression, and sexual orientation, and which adolescents are most likely to be the targets and perpetrators of such harassment. This talk will also discuss some of the consequences of gender-based harassment in middle school and high school. The talk will focus on the ways in which gender-based harassment, and reactions to harassment, are shaped by group norms, the macro (cultural) context, and the micro (peer) context. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the role of schools in altering those norms.

The Special Series on The Science of Human Diversity: In the special series of invited lectures, we explore the psychological science of human diversity, spanning topics including the nature of human diversity, attitudes toward it, reasons for lack of diversity in the workplace, and how diversity affects creativity and the scientific process. Over four academic years (2016/2017 to 2019/2020) the series has featured talks from world famous experts on diversity science, who approach the topic from the perspectives of social psychology, organizational behavior, child development, and human decision making. This series investigates case studies including gender, sexual orientation, political ideology, race, and religion, and how we can study the nature and impact of diversity in each case from a scientific perspective.
