About the Presentation

This article, "Partner Characteristics and Perceptions of Responsibility for Housework and Child Care",  was published in Journal of Marriage and Family in 2019, and attracted lot of attention from the media (Slate, The Huffington Post, The Guardian and etc).

This study examined the causal relationship between partner characteristics and the perceptions of responsibility for housework and child care in heterosexual and same-sex couples. By conducting a nationally representative survey experiment, the authors found that, in heterosexual couples, the respondents relied on gender differences to determine the housework and child care division, whereas in same-sex couples, partners’ gender expression had moderate effects on the assignment of housework and child care.

About the Presenter

Long Doan_Journal Club

Long Doan is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland. He is broadly interested in how various social psychological processes motivate behavior and explain patterns of inequality. In particular, Doan is interested in the intersections of sexuality, gender, and race. His work examines how seemingly subtle differences in evaluations of individuals based on their social characteristics lead to larger, more concrete implications, such as the acceptance or denial of legal rights or decisions related to hiring. His current projects examine (1) the ways in which people’s gender and race jointly affect others’ interpretations of their emotion displays and, in turn, subsequent evaluations of them; (2) Americans' attitudes toward the division of housework within same-sex families compared to heterosexual families; (3) the role of status, power, and emotions in escalating or reducing intergroup conflict; and (4) predictors of sexual identity disclosure and the health consequences of sexual identity discrepancy. He is also involved in methodological work developing a general framework for comparing marginal effects across models. Doan's work primarily uses experimental and survey methods, and he is Director of the Group Processes Lab in the Department of Sociology. He teaches courses in the sociology of emotions, social psychology, and research methods.
