The researchers took two online course instructors, one male and one female, and gave them two classes to teach. Each professor presented as his or her own gender to one class and the opposite to the other.
The results were astonishing. Students gave professors they thought were male much higher evaluations across the board than they did professors they thought were female, regardless of what gender the professors actually were.

Strategies of Critique, the graduate student conference of Social and Political Thought at York University (territory of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Wendat Nation, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation of Ontario: Toronto, Ontario, Canada).
April 21-23 2016
When the Social and Political Thought program was founded, there were few places to do interdisciplinary scholarship that was deeply engaged in theory. Throughout the years, various disciplinary misfits have come through our doors to create work that challenged the limits of their times. As we mark the 30th anniversary of our graduate student conference, we wish to draw from our histories of critique, while also challenging the theoretical and disciplinary limits of our time to map questions for our shared futures. Strategies of Critique has thought through the question of the human in myriad ways at multiple times in its history and we continue to do so with this year’s conference theme, “Human:Race | Reconceptualizing the Human in Difficult Times”.
