Toward a Theory of Gendered Socialization
Sallee, Margaret W.
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v4 n2 p170-192 Sep 2011
The purpose of this article is to introduce gender into models of doctoral student socialization. Although stage models of socialization explain how students acquire the skills to succeed in a discipline, they are content- and identity-neutral. Since stage models address how socialization occurs for all students, they cannot account for the idiosyncrasies of disciplines or how social identity influences an individual's integration to a new department. Using theories of gender performance as a theoretical lens, my purpose is to extend models of doctoral student socialization to consider how gender both influences and is produced as students progress through their programs.
