My name is Katharina (Kate) Block and I am a Social Psychology researcher, working on my Phd at the University of British Columbia, Canada (expected May 2019).

I am broadly interested in how stereotypes about the social groups we are members of (especially gender) influence how we think about ourselves (our self-concept). I look at this relationship at an explicit, and at a more automatic/implicit level. At the moment I am very interested in how gender stereotypes influence men and boys’ communal values (how much do they value helping and caring?) and their participation in communal roles (are they interested in becoming nurses, social workers, or teachers? Do they think they will participate in childcare?)
