On April 21, 2018, my 2017-2018 research team presented at the Western Psychological Conference for Undergraduate Research (WPCUR) at my home institution, Saint Mary’s College of California.
Students from all over the West Coast presented their research from a number of different perspectives within the field, which reflected the multifaceted specialties within psychology.
My team, consisting of Rachel Law SMC’18, Alex Short SMC’18, Prof. Paul Zarnoth, and myself, examined the link between gender, gender expression, and sexism. Our findings were complex and nuanced. For example, higher masculinity predicted higher sexism in women, but not men.
Our team won the Best Poster Award for this academic year, which is shown in the link above and in the picture below. Congrats to all the participants!
