Gender Effects of Media from a Psychological Perspective

Prof. Döring publishes in the handbook „Medien und Geschlecht“ [Media and Gender]

Handbook „Medien und Geschlecht“

In her chapter “Psychologische Zugänge zu Medien und Geschlecht: Medienpsychologie und Sozialpsychologie“ [Psychological Approaches to Media and Gender: Media Psychology and Social Psychology], which is published in the handbook “Medien und Geschlecht. Perspektiven und Befunde der feministischen Kommunikations- und Medienforschung“ [Media and Gender. Perspectives and Findings of the Feminist Communication and Media Research], Prof. Dr. Nicola Döring, Research Group Media Psychology and Media Design, gives an up-to-date overview of the current state of research on gender effects of media: What gender differences exist in media use and media production? How widespread are which gender stereotypes in media content and digital technologies? What negative and positive effects do media have on gender relations and especially on gender equality? The article shows that in psychological research on gender effects of media the negative effects dominate and argues for broadening the focus on possible positive effects.
