Gender and Culture in Psychology introduces new approaches to the psychological study of gender that bring together feminist psychology, socio-cultural psychology, discursive psychology and critical psychology. It presents research and theory that embed human action in social, cultural and interpersonal contexts. The book provides conceptual tools for thinking about gender, social categorization, human meaning-making, and culture. It also describes a family of interpretative research methods that focus on rich talk and everyday life. It provides a close-in view of how interpretative research proceeds. The latter part of the book showcases innovative projects that investigate topics of concern to feminist scholars and activists: young teens' encounters with heterosexual norms; women and men negotiating household duties and childcare; sexual coercion and violence in heterosexual encounters; the cultural politics of women's weight and eating concerns; psychiatric labelling of psychological suffering; and feminism in psychotherapy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Gender and Culture in Psychology is a gift to students and scholars of psychology, critical race theory, feminist studies and narrative researchers. Eva Magnusson and Jeanne Marecek brilliantly hold our intellectual hands as they walk us through an elegant and accessible genealogy of gender, culture, interpretative analysis, discourse, meaning making and the ways in which the local both shapes and limits what we say.' Michelle Fine, Distinguished Professor, City University of New York
'A compelling work of subtlety and scholarship by two eminent feminist researchers whose wide experience across the field of psychological theory and practice make this accessible and elegant text essential reading for psychological practitioners, students and researchers alike.' Erica Burman, Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University
'This book will delight readers searching for an accessible yet sophisticated introduction to a more contextual approach to psychology. Integrative and engaging, it is a treasure chest of ideas and examples drawn from across and beyond the discipline. This is a timely and important book that is likely to inspire a new generation of students and scholars with tools to do psychology differently.' Nicola Gavey, University of Auckland
