This collection of four essays examines the ways in which psychology, as a discipline, reflects ongoing scholarship on gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation. In Rethinking the Discipline: Psychology, Angela B. Ginorio focuses on the inadequacies of many existing courses and textbooks. She also explores specific psychological issues as they affect Latinas. In The Impact of the New Scholarship on Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Social Class, and Sexual Orientation on Psychology, Nancy Romer addresses the significant positive changes that have occurred in the field over the last several years. In A Just Noticeable Difference: The Impact of Gender, Race, Ethnicity, and Social Class on Psychology, Rhoda K. Unger notes that introductory psychology textbooks remain ethnocentric and androcentric and discusses the effects of feminist scholarship on the field. In Scholarship and the Discipline: The Study of Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Social Class, and Sexual Orientation, Karen Fraser Wyche examines the interrelationships between research findings, journal publications, and curriculum. Each essay contains references. (MDM)
