Dr. Gregory Kerwin, Assistant Professor, received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Connecticut, March 2010. Applied social psychology is his overall area of research interest with a strong emphasis on the self, stigma, and gender. The majority of his research has concentrated on social comparison processes, thin-ideal internalization and self-discrepancy theory in relation to the development and maintenance of female body image disturbance. His current research focuses on how individuals with concealable stigmatized identities manage prejudice and construct their identities with a particular interest in the effects of labeling and the process of deviant identity imputation and renegotiation for anorexic women. In the future he intends to continue investigating issues relating to gender, but plans to extend his research into the field of men and masculinity. {Email?: }
