John D. DeLamater
John DeLamater is the Conway-Bascom Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his Ph.D in the interdisciplinary program in Social Psychology at the University of Michigan, and has brought a perspective combining psychological and sociological theory and methods to all of his work. He has published more than 50 articles in numerous journals, including Journal of Marriage and Family, Journal of Gerontology: Social Sciences, Journal of Sex Research, Sex Roles, Public Opinion Quarterly, and Psychological Bulletin. He teaches courses in social psychology at the introductory and graduate levels, and has won several teaching awards. He is co-author of Social Psychology (8th ed), Westview, 2014, and co-editor of the Handbook of Social Psychology , 2014, in the Handbooks of Sociology and Social Research series.
His recent empirical research work has focused on changes in sexual functioning associated with age. He has published papers on sexual desire, sexual behavior and sexual satisfaction in persons aged 45 to 75+. He co-edited Sex for Life: From Virginity to Viagra, how sexuality changes throughout our lives, NYU Press, 2012. DeLamater was awarded the Alfred E. Kinsey Award for Distinguished Contributions to the field of sex research by the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality.
His affiliation with the Springer Handbook series began when Howard Kaplan encouraged him to edit the first edition of the Handbook of Social Psychology, published in 2003. Howard was a good friend and mentor. DeLamater continued to be involved, reviewing proposals for potential additions to the Series, and is honored to be selected to follow in Howard’s footsteps.
