Psychologist Carol Gilligan to address 'The Birth of Pleasure'

Writer and psychologist Carol Gilligan will lecture on The Birth of Pleasure on April 6 at 4:30 p.m. in McCosh 10 on the Princeton University campus. Gilligan, named one of the 25 most influential people in the United States by Time Magazine, is known for her research in gender issues, beginning with her book "In a Different Voice" in 1982. Since then, Gilligans research has led to the founding of the Harvard Project on Womens Psychology and Girls Development and the publication of five more books.

Gilligans current research extends to studies of courage and resistance in young boys, the power of education and the role of gender in social change. She is the first Patricia Albjerg Graham Professor of Gender Studies at Harvard University.

On April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon, Gilligan and Princeton Trustee Marsha Levy-Warren, Class of 1973, will lead an informal discussion in 210 Dickinson. Her lecture is sponsored by the Program in the Study of Women and Gender.
