We give a warm welcome to our Fall 2014 Faculty-in-Residence at the Center! Dr. Debra Oswald is an Associate Professor of Psychology. Dr. Oswald applies social psychology theories to understand a number of social issues. Dr. Oswald’s primary research interests focus on two areas: social stigmatization and interpersonal relationships.
Dr. Oswald shares with us, “I am delighted to be the Faculty-in-Residence Scholar with the GSRC this fall. During this semester I will be starting a project that investigates how experiencing sexist events impacts young women's lives, including their career aspirations, self-esteem, and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in examining the differential impact of hostile (overt) and benevolent (paternalistic) sexism on young women's lives. It is my hope that by understanding the harm that sexism causes women, we can work to support women's development.”
The center’s first Faculty Fellows helped shape the center’s academic programming and enhance interdisciplinary collaboration on scholarly work related to gender and sexuality issues.
