CSDE Research & Highlights

Casey Releases New Research on Patterns of Gender Equitable Attitudes Among Young Men

CSDE Affiliate Erin Casey recently published a new article in Violence Against Women entitled, “Patterns of Gender Equitable Attitudes and Behaviors Among Young Men: Relationships With Violence Perpetration and Masculinity Ideologies“. This paper utilizes latent profile analysis with data from 481 U.S. men to examine patterns of men’s attitudes toward gender equity and their engagement in gender-equitable (GE) behaviors. Five resulting profiles included groups with (a) high endorsement of both GE attitudes and behaviors, (b) low endorsement of both, (c) mid-range endorsement of both, (d) strong endorsement of GE attitudes, but low engagement in action, and (e) low endorsement of GE attitudes but high participation in GE behavior.

Pfaff and Hsiao Publish New Article on Iconic Figures’ Influence on the Spread of Protestant Reformation

CSDE Affiliates Steve Pfaff and Yuan Hsaio published a new article “Competing Social Influence in Contested Diffusion: Luther, Erasmus and the Spread of the Protestant Reformation” in Economic Science Institute. The authors study two influential intellectuals of the 16th century, Martin Luther and Desiderius Erasmus and their influence of reform on Protestant Reformation.
