Latitude Reduction Based on Gender Categorization and Gender Stereotypes: Studies about Explicit Attitudes, Implicit Biases, and Negotiating Latitude

Research output: Book/anthology/dissertation/reportPh.D. thesis

This dissertation consists of four articles; two articles which apply experimental methodologies from social psychology, and two articles which apply queer theory. These two different methodologies are applied in order to uncover different kinds of asymmetrical power relations driven by sex/gender categorization. The social psychology methodology is applied in order to capture fundamental psychological mechanism at play in patriarchal society – striving to unveil gender inequalities between the binary categories of men and women. The queer theoretical meta-perspective is applied in order to allow us to take a step back from our sex/gender categories, and unveil which effects categorizing by sex/gender has on people who are considered unintelligible by the categories. Therefore, this language philosophical perspective offers tools to analyse non-binary sexed/gendered people, and the sex/gender latitudes they are striving to achieve in a primarily binary defined world.
