Heather MacArthur

Heather MacArthur just finished her first year of graduate studies in Social Psychology and Women’s Studies at Penn State. Her research interests lie in examining how power is negotiated in subtle, everyday contexts and interactions, how people make sense of these power negotiations, how gender is implicated in them, as well as the impact they have on those involved.  She is particularly interested in examining the micro-politics of language and emotion, and how these intersect with gender. She received a doctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The project that received funding from SSHRC looks at the psychological consequences on women of being referred to as “girls.”
