Dr. Mirjana Adamović and Dr. Marija Geiger Zeman are the authors of the chapter entitled Sociology of gender within the textbook Uvod u studije roda: od teorije do angažmana [Introduction to gender studies: from theory to engagement] published by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Rijeka.
The chapter deals with the foundations and development of the sociological subdiscipline – sociology of gender. Since the main incentive for the establishment of the discipline originated from the intersection of sociological and feminist theory, the basic concepts and problems are described both historically and developmentally, and so are the latest (empirical and theoretical) tendencies in the development of this subdiscipline. Sociology of gender also deals with relations between gender and work, as well as global, structural relations. The chapter, therefore, discusses gender in the context of occupational choice, labour relations and the many changes in family and intimate relationships.
Dr. Ivana Jugović is the author of the chapter Psychology of gender in the same textbook. This chapter provides an introduction to psychology of gender, including theoretical perspectives, basic concepts, current trends, and methodological approaches applied in the research within psychology of gender.
