Gergen, M.M.

Mary Gergen, born in Tyler, Minnesota, USA, in 1938. Ph.D. from Temple University, Philadelphia. Associate Professor of Psychology at Penn State University, Philadelphia.

Fellow (1 September 1988 – 31 July 1989)

I completed my major project, studying the influence of cultural narrative forms on the production of popular autobiographies. Furthermore, I worked on a project called ‘social ghosts’, concerning imaginal dialogic relations. An unplanned project, with which I got involved is a feminist critique of postmodernism, from a post-modern stance, which is entitled From Mod Masculinity to Post-Mod Macho. I also submitted for publication Beyond the Evil Empire: Horseplay and Aggression, which emphasizes the interpretations of events from a relational perspective.
