Leave No Text Behind: Teaching the Psychology of Women During the Emergence of Second Wave Feminism The purpose of this paper is to explore the resources (especially the textbooks) used to teach early courses in the psychology of women. Textbooks represent an underutilized vehicle by which to explore ideological change because they are documents frozen in time that reflect the way their authors responded to particular historical and scholarly circumstances. The early textbooks reflect how perceptions about the methods and content of psychology changed in response to alterations in professional and personal consciousness induced by the emergence of second wave feminism. The structure and content of a sample of early and more recent textbooks (some that I authored as well as some written by others) is analyzed to help chart how and why the field has changed since the first textbooks were published in 1971. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the resources (especially the textbooks) used to teach early courses in the psychology of women. Textbooks represent an underutilized vehicle by which to explore ideological change because they are documents frozen in time that reflect the way their authors responded to particular historical and scholarly circumstances. The early textbooks reflect how perceptions about the methods and content of psychology changed in response to alterations in professional and personal consciousness induced by the emergence of second wave feminism. The structure and content of a sample of early and more recent textbooks (some that I authored as well as some written by others) is analyzed to help chart how and why the field has changed since the first textbooks were published in 1971.
