AbstractGISBERT offers an analysis of the biographical factors that lead students to choose either male-dominated or female-dominated university courses. This comprehensive work, which uses a developmental psychological approach, investigates eight individual cases. By means of biographical interviews and additional data collected during the period of study, GISBERT is able to show that identity-shaping factors that determine a gender-specific choice of academic subject are formed at an early age, for example, through certain structures of family interaction.
