I am Sarah Murnen, Professor of Psychology, and I have been here longer than most of you! I want to be able to more effectively use digital media to disseminate research findings. At the broadest level I am interested in how gender is structured in our society in ways that perpetuate inequality. More specifically I have studied how extreme gender role adherence in both women and men is harmful in various ways. I am not much of a twitter user but I hope that will change as I become more conscious about it. I think my twitter handle that I created some time ago is Sarah Murnen@SarahMurnen? (Very clever, huh?)
I have two grown children and have included a picture of us together in Barcelona a few years ago. I just returned from a trip to Ireland with them (and my sister Amy) and presented at a conference in Bath on that trip with some great colleagues – Jan might recognize Tomi-Ann Roberts from Colorado College in the picture.
Looking forward to much learning!
