Gilligan's work inspiring and feels that it has had a positive impact on women around the world. Another of her recent works is in developing the Listening Guide Method. This is a voice centered, relational approach to understanding the human world. The method studies voice and resonance. In developing this approach, Gilligan and her associates have collaborated with voice teachers who are experienced in working in theatre. This method has literary, clinical and feminist ways of listening to people as they describe a relationship that they have experienced. The method was previously called a clinical interview as a method of inquiry. Currently, Gilligan is teaching the fall semester course titled, Gender in Psychology and Culture: Theory and Method at Harvard. In addition to her duties at Harvard, she has been a visiting professor at the New York University School of Law since 1999. She teaches seminars on law and culture and works with the first year law students to enrich their sense of the responsibilities that are involved in practicing law.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
